Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a great day. I wanted to share a little story with you. 40 years ago, a little girl named Rhonda Jean was given a new life with a future full of possibilities. She was 10 months old when she left Foster Care and was given her forever family. A family that had a terrific Father, a loving Mother, a great older brother, and countless other wonderful relatives. Rhonda was adopted. Here is a picture of Rhonda on the first day with her new family. She is sitting on the table with her new Great-Aunt Thelma (the twin sister of her new Grandmother). They are at her new Grandparents home.
The little girl's new family decided since she was getting a "new life" she might as well have a new name too. And in case you hadn't guessed, that little girl is me. Thank goodness they changed my name to Holly. I don't think Rhonda fit too well. So thanks to Mom and Dad for adopting me! I am thankful to them for the life I've been able to live and for a loving family.
It seems ironic to me that the home they brought me to on my first day in the family is the very home I now live in. Life really does come full circle. Well, thanks for indulging me on this little trip down memory lane. Thanks for stopping by.
