Scientology 'disconnection' and the incalculable damage it does to children - 2018-09-20
This photo shows the day my mom disconnected from me.
My parents literally had a shotgun wedding. My mom was pregnant with my brother, my dad refused to marry her. My grandmother forced them to marry, literally, with a shotgun. Yeah, that's Texas for you.
My mom became a Scientologist at the Austin Org in 1969. She had my brother in early 1970, then she was pregnant with me while she was on staff there. She had not told me much about this time period, but she did tell me two things: She always wanted a daughter and had decided that she would keep having kids until she had a daughter (There is just my older brother and myself, her two kids), and she also told me that I made her miss Yvonne Jentzsch's speech (my fault) because she went into labor with me the night that Yvonne was at the Austin Org speaking.
