Deborah - the woman with the husband who tried to kill himself and with two kids (Sam was one of them) was on-line yesterday at the A&E site. They are making progress in continuing to clean up the house. She said that the parents realize they must take the major burden and not put it on their children.
They are still going through stuff and making progress, she said. I hope so.
It's unfortunate they put these people on such a ridiculous time limit of a weekend or so to clean up years of stuff. But it's a reality show, and that seems to be an element so much of the time.
There was one woman who had lost her kids to CPS and at the end of the weekend, they had put 900 boxes in storage yet to be gone through. That seems ridiculous. With her past problems, how likely is it she will go through 900 boxes and manage to throw or give away most of the stuff? At the end of that program, they said she still didn't have her children returned to her yet.
