catching up

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

got nice email from my sister.... she is still catching up on family... after being kinda lost for almost 30yrs..... her nephew [foster sister's son] is going to visit her next month... after my visit with her last year... she indicated she wanted to find him... and within a few days i found him and his sister on facebook... kinda glad i made that effort for her... we are tenetively planning another visit next year... work schedules and distance keeps us apart right now..
its so sad that some families are so distant.... i see and hear of this so much... and can relate to it.... under the circumstances why she left... i am glad she is picking up life and relationshsips from 30yrs ago... then i see families that would do anything for each other.. be there for them no matter what... my boss is like that.. very close to family.. i guess its one way or the other....

    You did a great thing, Betsy, by finding your sister's family for her. Families can be tough sometimes. You never know what to expect! Glad you are in touch with your sister now, too! Did you have a good birthday? Hugs, Jeannie

    I guess you're right about "one way or the other". My family - from UK, Ireland, Majorca, US, New Zealand, Australia & Canada - are in touch, through all the means available (Facebook, Skype, email, phone, text, visits), whereas my husband and his siblings don't contact each other for hmmm not this year so far! Yet I keep in touch with his nieces and nephews on Facebook and tell him their news.

    Glad you've got your sister back, and managed to put your nephew in touch. Whatever happens next is down to her.
