It is New Years Eve...

December 31,1954
My paternal Grandmother and my Mother holding my twin sister and I the day they got us ..along with the social worker Miss Finnegan(who,by the way,attended my wedding!!)
Mom and Dad..I continue the yearly celebration,even though you and Jan are no longer here.I love you and am proud to be your daughter. Thank you for giving me the gift of your love.
To my birth mother,wherever you are..thank you. I have tried to find you since both my parents thank you in person. I wanted to know you,the person you were. My Mother always said "you weren't born from my body,but from my heart". We are forever together in our hearts!
I was adopted..and also a gave up a child for adoption. I am in the unique position of knowing how both feels. 

To all of you..I wish you a New Year filled with happiness,good health and prosperity.
Thank you for taking the time to visit me here...I treasure all the friends I have made..and I look forward to visiting with you in the New Year!!

oh,the day after playing with all their toys!!Their joy and laughter and happiness!! Kept me busy and occupied....
for me..a time of father died the day after Christmas in.  2004..he wanted to die at home..i lived with him for 4 months,caring for him..letting him die with dignity,in his home,as he wanted .Bittersweet..he started dying the day my mother did,6 years earlier. They are all together,he,my mom and my twin sister. He looked so peaceful..I helped take his body to the ambulance..i wouldn't leave him till the last moment. Funny..I walked back into the house I had grown up was no longer was a house..the people who made it home were no longer there.
I am 59 years old..but, the daughter in me feels lonely for her parents.
Those of you who have lost parents know what I'm feeling.
