My family & my S/O family didn't tell us a lot about our families. My Mother was from Scotland & all I knew was her Mother died when she was 8 & she was 2nd from the oldest. Her Dad was unable to work & care for 7 children which was common back then in Scotland, plus women didn't want to marry you w/7 chd. I was told 4yrs later he died of a broken heart. My Mother went w/an Aunt for a while & then into an orphanage bec she didn't want her anymore. Sev. of the others went into orphanages also. The youngest DD came to USA w/an Aunt who told her she was her real Mother. My Mother never met her sister until she was 65 & she lived an hr away, they were total strangers & it didn't really work out. I made books for my brother, sister, 2 children & 1 Gr-son we have 1/2 custody of. I don't want them to have to wonder all their lives the way we did. How about you, have you left memories?
