I read "Three Little Words," by Ashley Rhodes in one evening. I could not put it down! There were hard parts, or parts that I could too easily relate to, when I wanted to put it down, but could not!
It gave me a renewed interest in my files. Although, I have never heard a succinct description of A) do I even have a right to them, and B) how do I get access to them without all of the red tape?! I find that this is a concern and struggle for many youth who have been in care. They want to see their files. There are a lot of keys in them.
So in my own journey, I'd like to create a resource for other youth/adults who also want to see their files. A resource that supports them through the journey, but also helps them cope with information that may come out as a result of having access to those files. This information can be helpful but it can be detrimental too. That information needs to have respect, because it is powerful.
Even now I hesitate to write about wanting to see my files, because of the power and potential is may have in my life and relationships around me.
