After 25 years of no contact, I was reunited with my maternal cousins in July. We miraculously reconnected on facebook. I was thrilled when they invited me to their annual family reunion in Indiana, especially since it coincided with my Ohio vacation. It was our first time meeting as adults. Introducing them to my children, and meeting theirs, was a surreal experience. I thought I’d never see any of them again, so this was truly an unexpected blessing and highlight of 2011!
