It all comes down to the reasons why you lost your faith...there can be good and bad reasons...the bad one is because being a muslin is not fashionable right now...the good one is because you are past a moral system which is not self sufficient. One should do the right thing not because the bibble or quran say so...

If they converted as teenagers does that mean your extended family is not Muslim? You could tell an aunt/uncle/cousin/grandparent and they can help you start the journey, and then help bring your parents round.
I'm not close with my extended family. The only family members that are in my life are my grandma, my aunt and cousins, but they are all Muslim as well. I have uncles who I talk to, but we aren't close and they live in other States.
If you haven't already, I think it's really important to start talking about it to someone in person, someone you know and trust if you can. It makes you feel less alone and it helps to know there's someone to support you if things don't go the way you want.

I believe she meant that her parents want their children to stay upon what they (their children) were raised. Not necessarily that they (her parents) stayed upon what they (her parents) were raised.
