I must have missed the grands tally!!! You see my yoonger babe as he's my avitar - the older is in Tampa and just turned 5!! I have four grown kids, and as some of you might remember from last summer, my first daughter who I had to give up at birth 43 years ago, just found me last summer!!!
I can't tell you the joy, the pure joy, of her first email..."I'm Suzanne. I believe I'm your daughter." We haven't met face to face, but we keep in touch on line.
It was a life shaking summer. First, the cancer, then Suzanne, and then, my Tampa son, who has had addiction problems all of his life, decides to get clean!! And, since opium has been his crutch for many years, it has been an awful ride for him, but even with no medical coverage, he has kept at it.
But, for some reason, the damned bc seemed to bring such good things with it.
And, you know, ladies, I feel very comfortable sharing with you. I never, ever would have told anyone about my daughter, ever. And, how strange, it was a closed adoption, of course, back in the 60's, but she ends up with a name that's very similar to mine!! Her parents never knew my name, and yet...
