To all of you who helped me in my search for my sister, I say thank you. On Monday I was so blessed to find her through my own “walking” through many processes, including obtaining the death certificate of an aunt, which gave me the information I needed about my sister’s married name. Wow!

What an experience when I contacted her by telephone. She was at first stunned, then extremely happy to find that she has a family she never thought she’d have! She is 76 and her husband is battling cancer, so it was very timely that I found her. My children are delighted and I know that each of them will contact her telling her how delighted they are.

Thanks for the help. Now the “getting to know you” process begins. Isn’t it grand? I now have two sisters, my adoptive one and my blood one! How lucky can an old dame be?

Blessings to all,
