He did get to stay with me for a week. He was kind of sad for a lot of it though. I'm really worried about him and I want him to be able to stay with me for a long time and meet my friends, especially my guy friends - I think it would be good for him to be exposed to a lot of males other than my father in a sort of role model context.
My aunt says that I shouldn't worry about the rest of my family, that they have to make their own choices and decisions to ruin or better their lives. But I was really lucky to be able to leave when I did, and I had a lot of help. I had the opportunity to make those choices and decisions and maybe he won't, or maybe the opportunities where he can make those choices and decisions will be a lot harder if he is still at home, and I don't want that to happen.
