Hi! New to this, just came across it. This is an issue that I think I struggle with but not as much as my mother. I have an adopted brother, now age 43, who has been in and out of trouble his entire life. He's about to be released from prison and we are just not sure where to go from here. We have a lot of sour feelings toward him but my Mom feels obligated to "help." Just looking for some support and to hear the stories of others.
