Plinky asked me, "How many siblings do you have?"
It's funny that you ask that, Plinky. I am the oldest of three. I was adopted at birth and so was my brother, David, who is two years younger. Then. lo and behold, mom got pregnant with my sister. I can't remember her name because we don't speak. But, there may be one more.
I may have a twin. My sister was partying at a club in the 70's and saw someone who she thought looked like me. She walked over and laughed and asked her out of the blue if she was adopted, because she looked just like me. She was adopted….and…get this….on the same day and the same year as me…and she was born in Wheeling, WV.
So, we met, with dreams of getting our blood tested to see if our DNA matched. We never did and I never talked to her again. I'm sure she was my twin. This was in 1956.
Maybe I will do some leg work to find her.
