One of my elderly neighbours Sylvia came by, she told me her daughter-in-law has traced her long lost son. He was adopted as a baby, and raised in Australia. Throught he wonders of Facebook he has been found and now he and Sylvia are in contact, so all's well that ends well.
I think lots of babies of that generation were given up for adoption because unmarried mothers were frowned upon so much back then in our society. Well, the only problem now is that Sylvia's daughter Carol, who was raised by her, is acting disinterested. Sylvia is really angry at Carol for not being as enthsiastic as her about finding Paul. I think it is only natural that Carol would feel a little jealous, but in time she may change her mind. Sylvia was like "Well, if she doesn't want to know her brother, she can forget it with me too!" But that is a terrible attitude, it will just make her more jealous surely. I tried to gently explain this but Sylvia didn't want to hear it, and left in a huff probably thinking I'm a bitch for not agreeing with her.
Still, I had to say what I thought.
