Lovely, John, as usual. The more you write the better I feel about my fellow humans. The doctor/uncle, though, makes me ashamed to be a member of the same species. Who throws their child out on a winter's night, especially Christmas Eve, because they aren't living the life you have planned for them? I wonder if he ever had any regret that he had been an asshole to his daughter. I cannot imagine a minute without my daughter in my life. What was he made of?

Thanks John. Reminds me of my own lost cousins on both sides of my family. I wish now I could have a conversation with them as I have very little knowledge of my family history.

I Loved the pics. I just want to hug those babies.
