A Last Afternoon With My Aunt

5 years ago

Since my mother died last November, I have been trying to locate my Aunt Cathy. She is my biological father's sister.  She is the one who kept in touch with me over the years.  The only one. She would come and visit for Christmas, and bring my little brother and I presents, even though he wasn't her blood relation.  She treated him just like her own.  She was that special lady who loved children, but could not have any of her own.  She worked tirelessly with the Special Olympics, before she got sick. She was the one who made an effort to keep in touch with me, even after my  bio-dad signed away his rights to me.  My mother remarried a wonderful man when I was four and a half, and he legally adopted me as his own, and changed my last name.  That man is my daddy.  He is the best father a girl could ever ask for.   Finishing reading here....http://wildwonderfulgingerssnaps.blogspot.com/2012/10/a-last-afternoon-with-my-aunt.html
