My Dear Brother Andy Passed Away

I haven't updated my blog in a very long time. I've been so busy, I know it's no excuse but that's all I have right now.

I have been spending as much time with my brother as I possible could for the last few months. My dear brother Andy passed away Dec 19, 2007. I am devastated, I will love and miss him forever.

He is my new hero.

He fought right up to the end, he fought this terrible pancreatic cancer for 2 yrs. He barely complained, and tried to be upbeat and cheerful right to the end. He was always worried about all of us, and not himself.

Tuesday night, Dec 18th, he was laying in his hospital bed. He looked at me and said "I can't hold on any more, it's too hard". I held his hand, kissed his forehead, and said "That's ok Andy, if you can't fight anymore it's ok to give up and rest. I will love you and miss you forever". The next morning he took his last breath, I was holding one hand, our sister in law was holding his other hand.

He is finally out of pain, and in God's arms.

RIP My dear brother, I truly will love you and miss you forever.

I can't finish this post right now. I will come back when I am stronger and do my brother proud.

Tears are truly words the heart can't bear to say. Mine are never ending.

This is my big secret I had last week!!

I went to meet my SISTER!!!

This picture has 4 out of 5 of us "found" siblings so far. Top left is my brother Steven (now Andy, I was adopted with him), next to him is my big brother Percy (now Richard, who I found last sept 2006). Bottom left is me Patricia (now Joanne), next to me is my sister Julie (now Catherine, who I found last oct 2006).

My sister had no idea I was coming to meet her, it was a big secret!! She thought it would be weeks until we were able to meet. She was so surprised when I walked in the room and said "Hey Big Sister, I want a hug!!" We did lots of hugging, talking, and just had a wonderful time together for the weekend. I'm looking forward to many many more!

We had a wonderful time, it's her birthday today, so we had a surprise birthday party for her on saturday, complete with bbq dinner, birthday cake and gifts. She was so surprised, it was great!

I'll post more when I have more time.

Piecing Together The Family History

I have been working together with a distant cousin to get my family history together.

I just want to say thank you to William Coveduck for all your hard work on this, you did an awesome job. It's not totally finished yet, but we're getting somewhere, there's some pieces to the puzzle that we (I should say He) hasn't figured out yet.
Click on William's Logo to visit his site.

Click on Viola Coveyduck and view my Mother's profile and our Genealogy.

As I get more information I will update this.

My "First Mom".....Viola Edwards/Fowler

This picture is my "first" Mom. I don't remember her at all. It's strange, but I miss her.

I was adopted when I was very little, I think I was 3 or 4 years old. We were all taken from our Mom when I was around 2 yrs old. I knew right from the start that I was adopted. I was adopted with my "real" brother, he was 2 yrs younger than me.

I can not remember anything from the time before I was adopted, I only had one or two memories, that's all I still have. I had nightmares for years, after I was adopted, almost every night. I would wake up screaming and crying. I don't know why.

My brother's room was right across the hallway from me. He is 2 years younger than me, and I always kept him close by, to watch over him. Lots of nights I'd fall asleep in the hallway between mine and my brother's rooms, or we would both sleep in that hallway, right under the window looking outside.

When I was growing up I used to wonder what happened to my "real" mom and dad, where did they go? Why were we adopted?? What did I do?? Was it MY fault?? What was my mom doing now? Where was she living? Was she living? So many questions, no answers. I kept telling myself that one day I would find my MOM, I dreamt about it, I thought about it a lot.

I wish I could have had the chance to meet my Mom. I would have liked to tell her that my brother and I were in a good home. She didn't have to worry about us. I found out that my Mom died as a result of a car accident in 1972, so I won't ever get that chance.

One day I would like the chance to visit her grave. It's very far from where I live right now, almost 3,000 miles. I would like to put flowers on her grave. Maybe some day I'll get that opportunity. I wish my Mom could know that some of us siblings have found each other again, and we are trying very hard to find the rest. I think she would be happy to know that.

Our parents were good to us, we were not mistreated, or abused. We were very fortunate. I didn't realize these things at the time, but now I do. I now appreciate the things our parents did for us, and the lessons they taught us growing up. We didn't do without a lot of things, which we would have if they hadn't adopted us. I love my parents, and am grateful for everything they've done for us. They taught us many things, which we didn't appreciate while growing up.

I love the parents that adopted us, they are my Mom and Dad and always will be.

I also love my "first" Mom.
