I think your life is very interesting! You should write more about the obsticals (sp) of being poor and about the time you grew up in---this would be new to me as I love memoirs and biographies. I wasn't born until 1959 so I know very little about life after WWII. Also, were you adopted? ---you mentioned you "became" a member of a wonderful family. I was just wondering. I like your story. Keep writing!
