I am a single mom of 2 teenage children. I have been divorced 10 years. My focus right now is trying to raise respectful children despite the economic disadvantages they have had to endure due to a father who has no idea what a "father" should be. I have a 21 year old son living with me who is a year and half drug free from methamphetamines. This was not without alot of tears on both of our parts and for his sister. He is going thru alot of guilt and needs someone to talk to that understands where he has been. I try and pray that this person will come into our life to help him.
We are blessed in so many ways. My daughter is the complete opposite of my son and very driven. She too has been thru alot over the last 2 years watching what drugs do to a person and the entire family. There is healing that needs to be done and we need the time to do this.
My job relocated me to the San Antonio area 2 years ago. Of course this was supposed to be my chance to finally make the big bucks. Ha. We relocated from the Dallas Ft. Worth Area after living there for 30 years. It was all I knew. Leaving all my immediate family was a difficult decision.
Although when my son finally got out of jail after his last episode he moved to San Antonio and found a job immediately. He has removed himself from the wrong people and works every day and has been with this job for over a year now. We celebrated!
As you can tell we are looking for prayers and a church family. I have not been able to find one here in San Antonio. I am not saying that we have visited alot of churches. I am saying that I watch Joel Osteen every Sunday morning or Charles Stanley or both.
Well that is where I am right now in my life and what led me to this site was looking for a family counselor for myself and my kids. Any suggestions are welcomed.
