My brother Lee wrote me & my sisters Buffy & Michelle last week. It was so good to hear from him & to know that he has a happy & productive life. I never understood why we didn’t get to grow up together, but I was traumatized because of it. My mother allowed my paternal grandparents to adopt him & his twin Lynn when we were all quite young. Mother was never good about talking about elephants in rooms, so my brothers’ absense from my life was always a mystery. But if we can rebuild our relationship, I will be happy & satisfied.
