In the last few weeks I went from having one older brother to having 4 half brothers!!!! What in the world! I am one girl of 5 boys! The younger boys don't know about me yet. The oldest who I mentioned a few posts back was adopted as well. He is the only one that… Continue reading Oh Brother …
Who is impacted by adoption? This is my story, my point of view. I can't speak for anyone other than myself. But it's not all about me ...

I can't keep my head straight this past week. I've written several drafts and none seem quite on track. I have been floating on cloud nine since I received my DNA matches. I really didn't get a whole lot of information. I don't have a name or a location, but I have a picture. I… Continue reading I just can’t focus
I never thought in my wildest dreams I'd ever have someone other than my children that I'd look like ... As you've probably already guessed there was a DNA match on my spit sample.
