Happy Birthday Mother,
Today we would have all gotten together to celebrate your birthday…But since you aren’t here, I want to thank you for the one gift that you left me…My older brother Tomas.
From the time that you disappeared, when I was 10 months old, Tomas and I were separated and lived in foster homes. It was not until I was 8 years old that I was reunited with my brother, Tomas and, at the same time blessed by a baby brother, Gilbert.
Mother, I’ve had a good life. I’ve also been very blessed with having numerous step-brothers, a step-sister and another half sister, Susan.
You have many grandchildren and great grandchildren, and although I have never seen your face, (that I can remember), I see your image in all the faces of my family…as we do have quite a strong family resemblance to each other.
Whatever happened, know that I think about you always and have missed having you in my life.
Your daughter, Sandy
