Alexander,

I hope things settle down for you soon. It's important to feel stable and safe at home, but it's so soon after the prosecution of the abusers, and well, it was even more important to get away from them.

It's rough if your parents can't or won't give you the support and love you need, but still, if that's the case and you are getting beaten at home then the authorities have to help you find other arrangements and that can get complicated.

Just remember that there are good people "out there" doing their best to help you. Do you have a case worker who stays in contact with you, for example? If you find you are being moved around too much, tell him/her how you feel. They will probably respond by telling you that sometimes they have to place a guy with people who can only take kids on an emergency basis.

Much love,
Larry

To answer your questions, Roadrunner,

It's not that my parents hit me, but they just told me they didn't want me anymore. And they sticked with it.
Yes, I have a caseworker. I've told her I didn't like it much, but there's really nothing she or I can do about the moving around. I'll just have to be patient and wait until there's a permanent place for me.

Thanks everyone.

Alexander

Alexander,

That's more or less what I thought. There was a need to get you into a safe home immediately, but the people where you are now cannot offer you a permanent place. The system can't always offer the services a guy needs as fast as he needs them.

What's important here is that you understand - and believe (they aren't the same thing) - that you aren't being rejected by anyone. The authorities are doing what they can to give you what you need, but it will just take some time.

And good for you for communicating how you feel to your caseworker. She's there to help, so I hope you will continue to talk to her.

Much love,
Larry

Alexander,

Just want to add my own word of support to those who've already spoken.

Try to keep up your courage, guy, and remember, even tho you don't know us well, we're here to offer you what support we can here on the web. Anytime you need encouragement, just stop by and give us a shout. We care. Plain and simple. Why? Because in one way or another every one of us have experienced what you have. We remember how painful it was and we want to offer you and others at least some care that we never received.

Lots of love,

John

So, moved tuesday.
The kids are alright, don't know what to think of the 'fosterparents' though, but hey.
It's only for a couple of weeks anyway.

Alexander,

Thanks for the update. I hope you are feeling okay about all these changes. If you feel you can answer, I'd like to ask you what's bothering you about your new foster parents?

Much love,
Larry
