    Born Too Late

     I never met my maternal grandfather or my paternal grandfather. Both of them died before I was born. I wonder how they would have been.

    I found out 2 years ago that I have an older sister. She was adopted at birth and it was a closed adoption. Sadly, I will most likely never meet her, but I hope I do one day.
