I grew up in a time where family was right next door. Wait, not entirely they were a town away but we visited almost weekly, we got to know each crazy relative and their special-ness to our beloved family. I don’t know how I would’ve felt if I’d ever been abandoned by a parent and left with my lovely family. I couldn’t imagine the pain, the hurt, the unwanted feeling….rejection. To be dropped off and your own dad on his way to the Vietnam War, such a traumatic event of loss upon loss. Thankfully they had grandparents that loved them.
