My Sister and I

On our second meeting, my hubby took this photo of J and I. (I'm on your left) April 2006.
We share the same mother - father's both unknown.
J is 5 years older than I.
J was also born in Sydney, and also adopted out at birth.
J lived a few suburbs away from where I grew up and went to a similar school to my own.
We visited the same areas throughout our lives.
We dated boys from the same schools.
Our lives finally crossed when I tracked her down last year - and had contact for the first time earlier this year.
I feel so very comfortable when we are together - and my heart aches when we are apart.
My life feels more real since she has come into my life. And I thank her for allowing me to be a part of hers.
Each time we meet, we find more amazing similarities about our lives.
This last visit - we both loved to read Stephen King novels as we grew up & we both share a creative streak that needs flexing often to calm our souls!!!
This is truly an amazing adventure we have begun - and I look forward to enjoying the second half of our lives together.

Chez, You are both absolutely beautiful. I got goosebumps as I was reading this post. I'm glad that the two of you girls now have each other to share thoughts, feelings and experiences with. Hugs, Rebecca

You two look so great together!!!! Just beautiful!Here's wishing your mother can totally open her heart to you soon. Those bad old days when women were shamed for getting pregnant before marriage, were so incredibly damaging. That would never have happened in a humane society where a new mother and her child would be nurtured and welcomed. Warm wishes, Lina

This is most wonderful picture I have ever seen. I always believe that God must be there to gift our sincere request. Keep your love intact the same way you have now.
