I was adopted at birth by a wonderful family. Sadly, by the time I was 20 years old, both of my parents had died. All I knew of my birth-mother was she was 15-years -old when she gave birth to me. I married and had children and 48 years rolled by.
One day in 2014 I received a message on facebook from my sister asking if I could be her sister. I replied and we immediately struck up an incredible friendship. We managed to have a family reunion in June if 2015 with both of my sisters and two of their children and for Thanksgiving, 2015, my sister Cherie came back down to Florida with my birth mother! We had a wonderful visit.
Cherie and I text each other almost daily but the only things we really talked about were current things -obviously we have no shared childhood memories to reminisce about.
One day, totally on accident, I heard an ad on a radio station for LRB coming to The Villages in Florida. I sent my sister a text and just said "Hey, do you by any chance like the Little River Band's music?" She replied, "Cool Change!" I immediately bought our tickets.
Cherie flew down for the weekend and while it was not the first time we had met, it was the first time just us two sisters got to "hang out" and just be us. The concert was amazing and totally made the weekend! We will definitely go again when they come anywhere near to our area. It's hard to explain but somehow LRB brought our childhood together and made us feel like we had been together all along! The guys totally helped to unite us a family!!! Thank you!!
