I get so excited everytime I read your posts. I never have time to do them justice, but just knowing that I can sit down whenever I want and read all of this is amazing. I had a interesting experience the other day looking for information on our adoptive son's biological mother. I only knew her name and that she was born in Virgina and had died around 15 years ago. My friend told me to go to "find a" and was totally surpise to see a picture of her grave that had been posted in February by a man who makes a hobby of photographing graves. Went onto find his grandparents, great grandparents, and eventually his g-g-grandparents that imigrated from Italy. Hope all is well with you. Love, Marlene
