My mother will be 80 next week and it's very difficult to get her to talk about her history. Her biological parents were if different races and she was given up for adoption at birth. She knew who her black mother was and intentionally cut her out of her life but is not 100% sure who her white father was. She can't talk about it in much depth before she dismisses the subject and shuts down.
I hope I can get her to read this and maybe muster up the courage to open up more.
