Pick up OUR Pieces,!!!!!!!

  3. The highlite of the day was meeting up with old friends from some of the homes I was in. Over the years I often wondered what happened to this one and what happened to that one and where are they now. It was good to hear how some have got on with thier lives not so good to hear of some who took thier lives or accidently overdosed from drugs and alcohol, others still suffering the affects of the abuse they suffered from in the homes and alot of them living in appalling conditions. I still can’t understand why the Government & Churches will not address this issue head on. They keep shoving it under the carpet and hope it will all just go away. Now wonder we are called the Forgotten.
