• I want to tell the story of my life, the circumstances of my beginnings and events that led to my somewhat unorthodox, private adoption and the untruths tangled within it. It was the start of a complicated and chaotic life in a large mixed up family. There was hard work, tears, abuse and oppression, but also love, immense laughter, enduring relationships and a rich tapestry of memories.

The eventual search for my natural family has resulted in a combination of heartache and happiness. It has answered some questions and raised others. Ultimately it has provided me with a history, unbreakable blood ties and a sense that, at last, I am not purely defined defined by my status of ‘the adopted one’.

      2. It is very well written and should be published! Most people, adopted or not, had a childhoods riddled with good and bad experiences. Does sound like you picked up your great story telling skills from Sylvie?

      3. Sorry but the way you put that made me laugh. I’m very thankful for the laughter growing up, it made the rest of it easier and left me with wonderful memories and something that bonds me with my adopted siblings to this day. We still relate the same stories and still laugh just as much
