For Arthur

A name can tell you so much about a person. For me, my name is all I have to remember my biological father, Arthur. I've always found it interesting to learn that I was named after him. My name is very unique and not many people in the world have it.

From what I've been told, my father was a military man, and a loving man and father. Arthur fathered 9 children and I was the youngest out of everyone. Due to my closed adoption, my sibling knew I existed but never knew where I was. It wasn’t until the early part of 2018 when one of my older brothers found me via Facebook. As you could have imagined, I was overwhelmed with joy to finally begin to have my puzzle pieces put together. My brother and I talked via text messages for days sharing as much information as we could about one another.

For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains

I have nothing but joy in my heart to know and understand that I was part of your journey through life. I would not be here if it wasn't for you. There is not one day that goes by that I don't think about you. Our angel above, continue to watch over me and the rest of your children. No matter the path we take in life, I know that I am not alone!
