I spent the day with Dianne, my birth mother, yesterday. Above is the first picture of us together after 36 years.
We had a pleasant day ‘catching up’ on 36 years of what’s happening and I enjoyed looking at her family photos. We met her co-workers (more like family and friends if you ask me), went to New Minas, a.k.a. New Mindless, to get birthday cakes for upcoming events and then watched Boondock Saints (she loves movies as much as I do) and just talked and talked. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. She gave me the photo a friend of hers sneakily took of me in the hospital just days old, my hospital bracelet, a copy of the ‘letter of apprehension’ from my adoption and the letter given her by the social worker once I had been placed with Mom and Dad.
More after the jump. —->
Dianne’s co-workers turned out to be such nice women and very excited for Dianne and I. Thanks for making me feel so welcome.
Here’s Dianne and I in front of the big apple on the lawn of the town hall in Berwick where Dianne works.
So far so good. BBQ here in Bridgewater today at the Browne estate. More pictures to follow.
