Still Here

Sorry Folks.  I have been busy with school and kiddos.  I just graduated from Houston Community College with an Associates in Liberal Arts.  I have intentions of attending Prairie View A & M in the pursuit of my Bachelors and further on.

I have led an active life since I divorced my ex-husband.  I moved to Houston, Texas.  I also went back to school because I would never be taken seriously by any state legislature without initials after my last name.  My oldest daughter just graduated from high school in the Katy ISD.  My youngest will be in high school next year.  I met my husband Mark while I was working for Time Warner in Wichita Falls.  We married two years ago and bought our home.  It has been wonderful having a brand new home.

The hardship is of course the Veterans Affairs bull crap.  I have had seven surgeries.  Two were repeats or do overs.  My skin disorder is not going to back down.  I am now worried that other areas of my skin are changing.  Now I have full blown Fibromyalgia.   I am dealing.  Life is good.

A couple of years ago I finally did the DNA testing thing. During the last few years, I stepped away from the adoptee rights movement.  I have been on the sidelines watching.  Two of my heros, Pam Kroskie and Connie Gray, have been stepping up in both Indiana and Texas.  I am proud of their efforts.  Both of these states have a ridiculously high amount of right to lifers.  There is still a mythical belief that adoptee access to their own original birth certificates means higher abortions as well as adoption being the cure for abortion.  In states that have opened access, abortion has declined and adoptions have increased.
