1: Things like this need to be talked about
2: Not every family is picture perfect.
Let me re-introduce myself.
My name is Katie, I'm 29, I've been blogging on various sites since 2008, I'm a mom to a beautiful little sassy Princess named MaKenna (15 months) and step-mama to an amazing boy named Jason (9 years old). I also have an amazing fiance and 2 awesome black kittens named Storm and Shadow.
I'm also the sister of a drug addict.
Yes, I said it.
My brother right now who has 2 amazingly beautiful daughters is in Jail right now because of the soul taking drug heroin.
Did I do everything that I could?
It makes me sad everyday to know that he choose to do this drug.
I'm a blogger and I haven't even written to him once.
I don't know what to say to him. He's sitting behind bars, in the middle of a divorce, and can't see his children.
What the heck am I supposed to say? My life is great...how is yours? NOT. How about " everything is going terrible...bills are piling up ... I had a miscarriage. Really inspiring right?!
I love him and he is my baby brother. How is it that drugs are so rampant in this country?! Every day I hear of another young person addicted to them.
We as a country need to figure out how to help the addicts and how to get rid of the drugs once and for all!
I will admit I'm not perfect. I LOVE my coffee and I smoke ciggs but I would NEVER touch drugs.
I need some opinions...
1. What do I say to someone who is in jail?
2. How do we go about trying to get rid of drugs in this country?
It just makes me sad.
