'Lauren Drain said she continues to have hope for her family members who are still members of Westboro Baptist Church — the same church she was banished from after having spent seven years picketing the funerals of children, soldiers, homosexuals and spreading a message she once believed.

“It’s horrible to throw your child away,” Drain said of her parents.“But I do continue to hold out hope for my family. I hope one day they will realize that isn’t a Christian-based message. I’m their daughter, and I hope they change. In a way, I think they are still brainwashed. The best thing I can do is hope.”

Drain has written a book,“Banished, A Memoir, Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church,” which will be released March 5.'
