Happy Friday 13th! I'm new...obviously. Please forgive me, I am not quite sure how to navigate your website yet.
A brief intro about me. I'm a "born-in." My father was an elder (a good one, really) and my mother was labeled an apostate. Yep, was very interesting growing up. I was a long time lurker on JW Recovery....I'd would like to thank so many for starting this forum as well as JWR. Although I wasn't at a place to participate on JWR, the thousands of posts I've read has helped me tremendously! I've healed well enough now to be able to try to participate-I think it's time.
I have LOVED reading all your posts, a few outstanding....Queequeg! LMAO!!! Time Bandit - I wanted to hug you because I felt your pain. So many others - your posts have touched me. I have a few funny stories to share of my own. I hope I can encourage others to heal and move on with their lives.

Haha Happy Friday the 13th to you too! Welcome prymaat! Wow, you were a JWR lurker, and you found us again! I spend my time hoping someone will read our posts and eventually find what it takes to join in. You have validated my hopes and made our efforts worthwhile... Thankyou, that meant a lot to me.
I'd love to hear more about your story, as it is a VERY interesting perspective I think. I'd love to hear more about the dynamics growing up in such a household. Please feel free to post and be part of our family here. We are all good friends and always hope to hear from new members and of course unregistered visitors too.
Thanks for joining us. It's good to finally meet you!

Prymaat, I'm so glad you are finally at a place to join in! The title of your post says it all. It does feel like home! We are all wonderful, ordinary people who, to me, seem like what JW's are supposed to be like but are not, for the most part.
So...father an elder and mother an apostate. Wow! I bet you do have some stories to tell! Looking forward to reading them.
Warm welcome! Nothing to forgive :) Was your dad forced to be removed as an elder for having an apostate wife? Sidebar convo-sometimes it's difficult to find my "voice" or type out my thoughts. But I'm around as a lurking spirit lol
