    In praise of “other mothers”


    Hi my name is Frances. I am so excited to tell you this story of my aunt Berty. I was adopted at birth. Two weeks after my adoption my mom had to go back to work so she left me with my aunt Berty (sister of my mom). Berty was only supposed to babysit me during normal working hours. Turned out I was there almost 23/7 for the first 13 years of my life. With Berty I experienced for the first time Disneyland, Universal Studios, the beach, swimming pools, and all of the things kids do. Berty is my world, and I am thankful to still have her in my life, she is now 88 years old. Please help me honor this magnificent woman. Thank you!
