Tis ashame that you were unable to connect with your blood relatives but the maker of all things never burdens us with more than we can truly handle and like you have said, you have family and friends who care about you all around. Thank you for sharing these events and who knows perhaps a niece or nephew will find you and you will have the strength not to turn your shoulder because you are clearly the bigger person in all this.
"May those who love us, love us. And those who hate us, may God turn their hearts. And if he doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping."
Grateful am I to have a sword in which to defend myself at all times, blessed am I for the days I need not use it.
