Please keep Harlot (Mitzie Shipe-King) in your prayers tonight. She has been battling cancer for the past years and is now in her last moments as per her family. I know it has been a very long time since we've been on Celtic Radio but I thought to let the people who knew her of her situation.

Thank you kindly everyone!

Just thought I drop by and say hello to everyone! It's been quite a long time since I posted on CR. I don't have any specific reason to tell you except busy with life and aging parents and other interests. Have to admit that I've been coming "incognito" from time to time and read some interesting topics. That's it for now, wish everyone a good week-end and maybe you'll see me a bit more in the future!

Dear Gabby,

They say that the road to recovery is having a positive attitude and the will to live.

You have those qualities and it certainly shows how strong you are.Not everyone can say that they possess strong will...lots of people would only give up but you did not and that's the way it should be.

You have the support of lots of people that loves you very much around the world... isn't it wonderful??? And I know that it is this love that's been nourrishing your soul and been helping you throughout this difficult ordeal.

Keep it up dear...and keep in touch.

Hi everyone...been a while but I happened to see that subject and also noticed that Nancy-Raven is from Quebec.

Well welcome to CelticRadio and to this forum Nancy, I am from the province of Quebec also. And I've read about this news in the papers last week...yes it is unfortunate that our healthcare system is so poorly managed but it is the same all over the world it seems except in Cuba, where they have the best doctors and healthcare system in the world.

Still we should not complain so much as many countries don't even have a healthcare system at all. Our American friends had to pay for their health services and some to the point of bankrupcy...though I agree that many don't even have a family doctor and it could be a problem for the women who will go to fertility clinics ... what I wonder is though...if one is going to an infertility clinic in order to get pregnant then how come there are no doctors there to do the follow ups in the following months of their pregnancy?

To me I think that it's about time that the government gets involved. Too many women just don't have the funds to pay for private clinics.

I do not follow on the story of that woman you are describing Nancy.

And the fact that we don't have enough doctors is due mostly because all the graduate move out of the country for practice elsewhere for better wages and better working conditions. If the governement would manage the system better this would not happen...in my opinion.

Though I do not have children of my own...I can understand a woman who can't and wish to but have to go to private clinics and if the results are positive then if the government is ready to pay for 3 attempts than they should provide the doctors services as well.

Been a while since I've posted in here as I went back to work full time for I didn't want to drown myself into depression after this complete disaster with my biological parents.

Tomorrow it will be a year since that first meeting with them occured though even then I wasn't sure about their sincerity as you all know it was not so.

So this said I have made a decision which to some of you might find drastic or harsh or whatever you want to call it.

But since that cruel letter that I've received from my father and since that I know that some of my siblings knows now about my existence and have simply not bothered to even contact me as one of them have my phone number, all that they have given me as gift or money...I will burn everything tomorrow as a symbolic gesture of freeing myself of them and go on with my life.

To me that is the only way that I will be able to get on and turn the page as far as they are concerned.

Some have asked me not to do this as who knows...some might come or call in the future...but I cannot forgive any of them for the way I've been treated...maybe God or the creator in all his mercy will but I cannot...I'm human after all and I must go on and I deserve to be happy.

I am surrounded with my family and friends who loves me...to hell with the ones who still lives with prejudices..I couldn't care less about them...but the ones I love and love me for who I am are more and most important of all...so life goes on.

Dear friends,

Thank you for your support, it means alot to me. Please understand that I can no longer keep the picture that I've posted of our meeting last July. I know that you may think me a hard person when I'll say that to me though my heart bleeds right now they are dead to me and I will have to move on as now I know where I stand where they are concern.

I have a meeting this coming Tuesday with the intervenant who wishes to help me out in dealing with this and help through the next level. Though he is no longer involved in the work in progress with the previous project with my parents , he still wants to help me as he feels that I've been blown an unfair treatment from my parents. I sincerely appreciate what he is doing for me and I will keep this journal updated with the future development with my siblings if ever... I have to keep faith and that is my next dream. Hopefully, there will be at least one who will agree to make contact with me.


My dear Camac and CarolinaScotsman...a very special thank you and hugs and kisses I send your way for your undying support and friendship. hug.gif

Thank you MDF3530 for the kind words and yes indeed they are missing a lifetime opportunity but unfortunately that is their choice and there is this old saying that says " one is supposed to learn from one's mistake " it seems that they have repeated that same mistake of 50 years ago.

Hi everyone,

I thought to bring that little journal here up to date.
As of this week unfortunately things did not go well with the relationship with my parents. I received a letter this week with threats from my father that he would take actions against me if I persist in trying to make contact to either of them.

This following a letter that I sent to them about my thoughts on the current situation and the few developments that occured since the initial meeting with them. Their indifference and no show of interests towards me but most of all the insistance from their part to keep in the dark, meaning not to divulge my existence to my siblings and act as if I do not exist. I couldn't concede to their request as I consider that no one can demand that from another human being especially a blood relation.

It seems that they took my letter as a threat to their dignity and thus ended our relation. Little that they know they have again rejected me by that action but they also lost me forever. I will walk with my head high unlike them that will always have a heavy burden of shame in their hearts. And little that they know that when the news will come out to my siblings and the proof of who I am, then they will have but no choice to explain what happened.

But I will still go forward with my next move to fulfill my dream to meet my siblings as they have nothing to do with the decision that my parents took when I was born..thus they have the right as human being to know that they have a sister that exist in this world.

That's if for now..and maybe later if new development comes ahead in meeting my siblings I will update that journal.

Who haven't heard of the popular and most extraordinary "The Nutcrackers" and the wonderful and magical music of Tchaikovski.

I never get tired of listening to it and just can't miss it year after year. I find this ballet the most wonderful in the world. Though there are many great ones, I don't know this one holds a particular place of favor in my heart.

Here is one of my favorite part of it "La Valse des Fleurs" where all the ballerinas and their princes dances to the wonderful valse of Tchaikovski.
