thank you angie mama

This e-card is from my stepmother. It is not a technicality, but the slow reality after the healing from hurt during my early years when being an adopted daughter, and being a new wife expected to raise an adopted child at the same time she gave birth to her own daughter,were difficult roles forced on the both of us. The constant is that my stepmother has pretty much always laid out a place for me at the dinner table.

Always a wealth of support and a staunch supporter of being an independent woman, it took me a while to realize just how much she cares. Sometimes it's hard to see when there are other people manipulating the emulsion.

ok, this is totally not related to your blog, but i saw your post on the knot, and wanted to share what i know about getting married in mystic, ct if you are interested. my best friend just got married there aug. 23, and it was beautiful. she is originally from CT and lives in Atlanta. Anyway, if you are interested, let me know and i can send you pics and put you in touch with her on the Knot. You can see some of her pics on my blog :)
