Warmly,

Kel

Kel - first... you are gorgeous!

You did an awesome job and said a lot of what families of addicts want to be able to say. I'm sure that was very hard for you, nicely done.

You continue to stay in my prayers

Kelly, bless your broken but brave heart. You did a great job. I admire your courage and your honesty so much.

Syd said...

Thank you, Kel, for sharing your story. I thought that you were poised and spoke your truth. People need to know that drug addicts are ordinary people on the outside and not necessarily celebrities or skid row bums.

I actually am watching the show while reading your post. I think you said what so many of us would want to say to the world. Our young adults are JUST LIKE your young adult. The difference is that they suffer from a disease. A disease that isolates and tears apart the family.
I hope it was helpful to you to share a small part of your story. Thanks for speaking out.
God bless.

Kel, you were wonderful..articulate and sincere.

It must be so very hard to talk about it, even now. Thanks for having the courage to do this. I really don't know if I could be open like that.

You made an important point that you cannot tell if your child is taking drugs by "looking" at them.

I watched the show today and I thought it was good. You did great and spoke the truth. It couldn't have been easy. Thanks for sharing.

I'm proud of you Kel and I believe you honored him well by clearly defining that "he" was not his addiction...."he" was a good young man.

I am so proud of you. You did an amazing job, and really said what those of us who have addicts close to us think on a regular basis.
