One Night...

And this could've been my story.
My niece turned 21 today. My sister and BIL brought her home from the hospital 21 years ago. It was an open adoption, they knew her birth mother. Recently my niece decided she would like to meet her birth mom. My sister always was open and told her they would find her if or when she wanted to. They are taking a trip to meet in person this week, but in the meantime they've been talking online, exchanging photos etc. Anyway, I found my niece's myspace page today and therefore found her birth mother's page. So here's the kicker, her birth mom and I are the same age! I remember meeting her when she was pregnant, which in retrospect I know was the most genius birth control ever for a 17 year old girl! Hi meet "Lost Pregnant Girl" who is your age, don't want to end up in this condition? DO NOT HAVE SEX...EVER! My sister is nothing if not smart and a bit sneaky. Anyway all day I've been stalking ... um, looking at her myspace page thinking how different our lives are. I am trying to wrap my head around the fact that I could have a 21 year old child! Just WOW!
PS Happy Birthday Jer!

...and just think you could be a grandmother too. I was shocked to see that a person I went to HS with is a grandmother. We are 35 YIKES. Guess I'm getting a late start
