CDSM Family Tree
Yes, of course I could have tried to import an image from our 7,400+ extended family tree but that would have entailed exposing private details to the world and his uncle. So, what you get is this image instead, which is generic and ’empty’ of personal elements.
My purpose is to acknowledge, here, that we have many, many members who are connected to me by birth, marriage and adoption. And two individuals who might have been members had circumstances been different.
When I first took a DNA test four years ago, I speculated that I might have a child that was conceived one snowy January night in 1967. But, nothing has showed up yet, all this time later, so maybe I had been taken for a mug by the Children’s Aid Society in that year.
The other ‘potential’ child happened to be conceived in March, 1987, only to be aborted by its mother before summer that year. So there will be no DNA link to me. However, karmically we will have a connection, for sure.
My two biological children let me know they were conceived by emitting a *ping* at their moment. I guess, since the other two didn’t do that, it must have been known that they weren’t coming after all.
