They just want something to believe in, something to grab onto. Its so sad. We have boys here that are raised in Polygamist towns and get kicked out when there are too many boys for the girls...left to fend for themselves in an unfamiliar atmosphere. These are the things that really break my heart. These people just don't get it.
Yes, I've watched that show a few times.It takes a lot of guts to leave that type of situation. I've heard about the boys that are kicked out of FLDS places.

I suppose most of these kids are too old to be placed in foster homes.
Aren't there other social services that could help them find a job and a place to live?
