A Christmas miracle has come to our family. My daughter Laura found her mother, Judy. She is 71 years old, a very loving woman who lives in New York State. She also found a sister and a brother and their children. Wait that is not all….. She found her first, second and third cousins and their families. Her family grew to about 20 new relatives. Her mom is so excited, she said there was not a day she didn’t think of her and wonder where she was and was her family a good one.
Her mom did not abandon her but was forced by her mother to give her up. They were very poor and were struggling to survive without a bread winner in the family, and the sperm donor father wanted nothing to do with her mom once she was pregnant. Interesting enough he was a cop at the time. No one knows anything more about him nor do they care. Judy and her husband at the time were separated and in time he remarried and Judy did in time.
They are now in touch and Laura wrote to her and sent her lots of pictures. In time they will meet for now they are savoring the moments.
I, her adoptive mom, am very happy for her and the heart has no limits on how many you can take into it.
Merry Christmas all.
Grinning from ear to ear. LOL
