    Hello Pammy and welcome. I can assure you that you aren't alone in this... many of our members have been in similar circumstances.

    Why don't you tell us little about what lead to your son being sent away? Just be sure to avoid giving any personally identifying information as we want you to maintain your family's privacy.

    pammy hi! and welcome :)

    me personally no i have not gone through that, yet many have here. i just wanted to jump in and welcome you. you have found a great place, full of insightful and supportive parents here.

    I do know from seeing others experience it, it can be a very difficult thing what you are going through. Yet i'm sure that there are very good reasons you chose this particular action.

    Welcome again and sorry for your pain
