Vermont 2016: Paying Respects to Mom

We made our pilgrimage to Vermont to pay respects to my Mother by returning her remains to the lake she loved so much. It was a nice opportunity to talk with the boys about love and loss. We’re going on three years since she died. I miss her dearly.
A lot has happened this year. I'm going to attempt to cover that over the next week. The Vermont trip had always been about my Mother. Then my amazing biological cousins found me. They also live in Vermont so it was an experience of loss and unexpected gain. I’m going to introduce them soon and tell my adoption story.
