The Journey Starts Here…

by Laura

laurababy001I’m a Wife, A Mum, and a Nonny. I was, in the not-too-distant past, a Widow. I am also an Adoptee. And in a very wild ride, after my friend, whom I call the Intrusive Genealogist talked me into an autosomal DNA test with Ancestry, I have, if not new roles, as I have been a Daughter, a Sister, an Aunt, and a Cousin for years and years…but renewed roles to people who look like me and act like me; who gaze into my face and find, if not themselves, a memory of someone they knew and loved who is no longer with us and who is a very real part of me.

At sixty years old, I found my birth family.

Welcome.  This is the story of my Clan and how we found each other…again.
