I have to get to work now but I wanted to offer a quick thanks for all your comments. It really helps.
Since I have other children still marching to the beat of the Watchtower drum, as is my wife, and since some of my children are still minors, I know that once I start to take some action, it's probably really going to hit the fan. After starting to wake up to what a lifetime of JW conditioning has done to my kids though, I know I have to press forward; however, I want my course to be well thought out and to not take rash action or speak hastily.
To garybuss and cruzanheart, could you share any more about what your counseling covered and how it proceeded? But please, I understand that this might be very personal so, if you'd rather not go into any more detail, I'll understand and I won't even come close to being offended or bugged about it.
To jgnat, thanks for the invite but I'm afraid that my current domicile is more southwest than north.
