My mother Karen was born in 1948 and given up for adoption. After a lifetime of mystery and unanswered questions, she finally had the nerve recently to try to find her birth mother. Only to find she had just passed away. Mom found out that she had several half brothers and sisters that lived within driving distance of her. With a lot of bravery and encouragement from us, she decided to write the oldest sister a letter. On May 20, she went and met them, and these are the photos which tell many, many stories of the mother she never knew. If anyone was doubting the validity of her lineage, all you have to do is look at their photos side by side and it's obvious. Obvious to everyone. The color photos were taken that day of my mother and her newly united siblings. You can see in their faces how happy they are to have found eachother.
We love you Mom!
