Hi, my name is Tara. I started this group today due to my intrest in a group that didn't quite fit me. I lost my mom 20 years ago and was mostly raised by an alchoholic father and his "lady". I have had many times in my life that may have been smoother if I had parental guidance, and raising my own children is at the top of that list! I am amazed at how much my life has honestly been affected by my upbringing and the relationship (or lack-there-of) with my father, I don't always notice - but it's always there. I wish that things were different, but make the best of what I was given. I look forward to connecting with others who may have or are going through things i have or am going through.
I hope that everyone will get as much out of this group as I hope I do and look forward to growing, learning, and yes...a little venting. This may end up being a small group, but a group with the topics that are not brought up in the "mainstream" and where I'm sure we will all find a little of what we may be missing.
Thanks for being here!
