Female Role Models



Perhaps my life would be different had I had the opportunity to be raised alongside my older sisters... I'm sure I would have had them as role models and been both influenced and inspired by them. But if I had been able to stay--- not be adopted I'm not sure if my youngest birth sibling would have been conceived or even born...

I reserve the right to mention that in another separate post--- if or when I feel strong enough to actually do it.)
