Thank you @GrhRo, that's really kind of you to say. You ask a very valid question. Thinking back to 6 years ago, I had no idea where to turn, and no idea what was happening or why. I became aware of services because initially the only thing I knew to do was call the Police to take my daughter, and I was taken to hospital because I was suicidal. My daughter stayed with my parents for 4 months, until they couldn't cope and were making arrangements for foster care. I couldn't do it, and she came home with me, and I have grasped at all the help I could, which started off with DoCs who I think set us up with TBS. I blog and I might start writing here more about how bad things were, hoping that if parents can see that others are talking about it, it may encourage them to seek help and understand that these places are not about judgement, but about help and support, and healing families. Time to act is crucial, but that time is never too late! I'd love to show parents that getting help really can change the situation.
