Memorygrabber has Encouraged me to Connect with My Family
by Elizabeth Fox
I come from a very large family. I was adopted from Vietnam in 1974, which is how my mother began her business in international adoption.
After having three boys of her own, she decided that she wanted a girl, so that is when I came into the family. My sister was then adopted from Guatemala, then my older brother from India, and my younger sister from Russia. I have 6 brothers and sisters (not including me), all married, and all have children.
Because of my mother's business, she has had an impact on all of our lives, so my older brother, Steve, adopted a seven year old from Guatemala. I have fourteen nieces and nephews and I love every single one of them.
I have no children of my own due to a mental illness that I was diagnosed with when I was thirteen, but I enjoy playing with my nieces and nephews, as they are like my children.
The Memorygrabber has encouraged me to connect
and be closer to my family. This year, everyone will be home for Christmas and this lifebook
will give me the opportunity to connect.
I have enjoyed this lifebook and I am sure that when it is completed, my family will enjoy it as well.
