Ladies:

October 7, 2009 is now "New Mother's Day" for me. I just wanted to give you an update on what's transpired since then.

Yesterday, I packed 2 UPS boxes to go to my birth mother in Florida. One box has all my photo albums I want to share with her and my 2 sisters & extended family. One box has things just for Clarice, being my first baby shoes, Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls for my niece to have as a keepsake, a portrait my Mom (adoptive Mom & always Mom) had done when I was 3 or 4 years old that I'm the spitting image of my birth mom, school art & papers written including a paper I wrote when I was 10 about how special being adopted is, etc. I leave Friday 11/20 for Tampa, where they are picking me up for a short weekend where I can meet Clarice, Sherry & Gracie & extended family. 

My sisters & I are all 1/2 sisters. My younger sister looks just like me!
