I ran out of room on the other post! I don't know why I always thought my birth grandmother died of breast cancer, that has scared me for a lot of years. Is there any way to find out what Don sr.'s mother died of? Which one was it I was closer to? I remember being so sad when my grandmother died.
My children are extremely smart as well. I always figured they got that from their daddy, who is very very smart. I am no dummy myself, but our children are very intelligent. I always thought Rick had a type of Autism for some reason. Randy and Rick were the closest in age to me and I remember trying to "teach" them when we were little. Even though they were older then I am. I remember not being close to Steve or David, those two used to torment us something fierce. I always considered Donny and Danny "my babies". They were so little when we were removed from the home.
I have to say I harbored a lot of resentment for a lot of years over the life I had before my parents adopted me. With their love and support, I have overcome a lot of that. I don't want to do anything that will hurt my parents in any way, so for now I think it's best if we just communicate on here.
