Mrs. G.

Man, this post gets to me. I, too, was a victim of of Divorce 70's style. When my parents divorced, my mom took me (age 5) and my dad took my brother (age 9) and went their separate ways. We never crossed paths again. I wrote my brother a couple of letters many years ago, and they both came back Return to Sender. Pretty sad.

I'm sorry about your sister. Hope you find some peace.


It was my sister's illness that brought T and I back together. Since then, I've been reuniting with lots of my (step)family. I think you are so busy with life, raising a family, etc. in your 20's & 30's that you don't notice the absence. I hope you get to reunite with your brother at some point--it has made a world of difference in my life.


Jenn. Also looking through your archives. Sorry to hear about your sister's illness. What a gift you've given to her (your) daughter. Oh, that big D word. Such grief it can bring. Good reminder that it flows beyond the two divorcees.
