About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Retired, Amateur Artist
Location Sanford, Florida, United States
Introduction I am one of the estimated 2 to 6 million women who, as young, unmarried girls, had children taken for adoption during the Era of Mass Surrenders (EMS). I am now reunited but am determined that we, as a group who suffered the worst kind of isolation and discrimination, find justice for our cause. Ann Fessler wrote about us in her best-seller, "The Girls Who Went Away." Many of those "girls" that are featured in this book are my friends. I have four chidlren, two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren and have a right to be treated with respect as an adult. No more shame, blame or put-downs will be allowed to go unaddressed. I am also a woman with ideals, values and philosophies. Like everyone else, I have a right to be heard.
Interests Adoption-related activism, writing, painting, cooking and enjoying my wonderful husband, children and grandchildren, our two Rat Terriers

Sponges and tongues are frequently misspelled. Is it because both are thirsty? is because people are no longer being taught how to spell.
