Yesterday, May 23, 2017 would have been my birth mother’s 79th birthday, had she not died in 1990. I was thinking earlier today that when I get to heaven I will two mothers – the mother that adopted me and the mother that birthed me.
Interestingly, the mom who raised me is named Irene and the mom who birthed me has the middle name of Irene. The mom who raised me had a brain tumor removed successfully and later in life had lung cancer, but in both cases she did not succumb to death. The mom who birthed me had brain cancer and did succumb to death on April 27, 1990.
