How long ago was your disconnection? 10 Years
Are you a current member, an ex-member, or never a member?
ex-member
Did you disconnect, or did someone disconnect from you?
The other person disconnected.
1. What is (or was) your relationship to the disconnected person?
My Sister and Brother disconnected from myself and my mother

My stepfather left the church and was 'squirreling Tech'

3. Were you given a choice about disconnecting? Was there anything you could have done to avoid the disconnection? If so, please describe the choice involved or what you could have done. Do you now feel that you made the best decision?
No and No

4. Was a formal disconnection letter sent? If so, what did it say? If not, how was the disconnection communicated?
No

5. In what way has the disconnection affected your life?
I no longer know my brother and sister and really am not interested in knowing them after 30 years of little to no contact.

6. What were your feelings at the time about the disconnection?
I was pissed off. Mostly, because my mother didn't get to see her grandchildren.

7. What are your current feelings about the disconnection?
I think the church is a cult, and should be closed.

8. Has there been an attempt at reconnection? Were there any conditions for reconnecting? If there was an attempt, did you succeed at reconnecting?
Somewhat, but after so long of a period of time. We are now strangers.

9. If you are currently disconnected, would you like to reconnect? Do you believe it is possible, in your particular case? If not, why?
We now have some contact. But it's really not a real relationship.

Would you like to make any additional comments?
Scientology destroys families! It is a cult and should be closed.
