They are both my heroes.
Both overcame a brave fight against breast cancer.
One I am blessed to still have.
The other I will be blessed to meet in Heaven.
I always knew I was adopted. The minute after college graduation, my heart led me on a search. Unfortunately, she passed away while searching for me, to give me this crucial medical information and to tell me she always loved me.
"Sealed records" law prevented our reunion. I can't wait for the day all states join the six that have restored the rights of adult adoptees to obtain their original birth certificates.
Until then, I will continue to thank God I found my family and for both my Mothers. My Pink Ribbon Heroes.
