U r right on!!! I was adopted into the most soul-destroying parents one could get!!! And now they try to raise my child as im a single mother and even though im a researcher for a museum, part-time, i dont make nearly enough to have a place of our own...beyond tragic. And when I've pointed out the ways that they can stop hurting myself and now my child and not continue the viscious cycle like forcing us to attend school...they look the other way as if nothing has occured and the pain continues and now in 2 people, a Mother and now her child!
