Excitement

Two things happened yesterday. I found my birth mother and a half sister and brother. My sister is here visiting me and we have met for the first time. VERY exciting.



I was also able to buy one of Laura Kemshall's portraits of her daughter Amelie. I have hung it next to the work "Bluebell Wood" by her mother Linda.

  2. The two of you have a striking resemble. That seems like it must be fun for you but also strange...

    1. Thanks Cris. I am having so much fun with her. Unfortunately reality returns tomorrow and she has to drive back to Indiana and on to a new job starting Monday. Alas...
