I got a reminder that it is time to begin searching full time again. That life is too short. I found out today that my first adoptive father has "Mantel B Cell Lymphocytic Lymphoma. They think it is under control but this disease is one of the wild cards. It is a form of Leukemia that tends to come back with a vengence. To be honest I am not looking forward to it both the disease or the searching. The searching is hard work and very time consuming. I do have Ancestry.com which helps. I also contacted Catrina and Ron (the union guy that was part of the rubber/plastics unions back in the day). I am searching for tire plants that were in operation during 1965 specifically Michelin ones. Michelin is my birth name. I swear I smack my bmom for that one alone. She named me after a tire company.
I wish my bmom knew that life was too short to lose someone you love. I have suffered loss in recent years that made me search. I don't think that I was ever prepared totally for the rough ride that I have been on. After speaking with my first adoptive father, he even said that this denial of OBC's was a form of slavery. It is the only group of people that are expected to honor a contract for the rest of their lives. It is the only group of people that weren't allowed to make the choice for themselves because they were minors at the time of the agreement. There isn't a race in the world that would tolerate this kind of treatment. As far as the sexes goes, we are rapidly going back to that kind of treatment. I know that the only thing that I can do is write the legislature of my state. I still can't do much about the state that I was born in.
Just a few thoughts just for today
