Searching the family history on the net together,
not knowing the other was there. They were
both getting frustrated, if there was another place
to look, it was where? Little did they know,
that one fateful day, they’d find their history
almost the same.
By a chance meeting on a forum, the first
woman was about to give up. She was about
to give it a rest, when suddenly a strange woman
came to help with her quest. About the moment
she would cry, “No more”, the new woman
opened a brand new door.
But all was not lost, due to their dealings together
and with others, things of the past finally came to light.
And though it seemed like they had failed, helping
others made their search seem right.
They were disappointed no relationship was found,
but through constant research, getting to know each other
forged a friendship that was solidly bound.
One fateful day, the first woman was diagnosed
with a terrible disease. Alzheimers started
to take over her body. Her friend was distraught, and
prayed, “don’t let this happen please”.
Somehow, the relation mattered no more.
They had forged a friendship deep and strong,
And through all their research, they could finally see,
Not a blood kinship, but a true family.
