Heavy heart... the loss felt flows through my body on many different levels. From being a contributor within the book and fellow adoptee with Native ancestry running through our veins and being women. But mostly the loss of her through an act of violence. This alone makes my heart beat harder and more painfully over and over above all else.ReplyDelete
Oh no! Did not know she died from violence. It was not clear if the parents they mention were her birthparents or adoptive ones. Very sorry the world has lost her.ReplyDelete
Lammers was the adopted name she was given. Cindy was murdered and it is under investigation.ReplyDelete
