You know this is story of Mom's is completely untrue. Thomas Mitchell Matthews is our grandfather. Love you, Sis. We need to get rid of the lies of the past and get on with the present and our futures. It is hard, admittedly, when your own mother sows lies into your life and intentionally keeps you separate from people who could challenge her legitimacy. The truth is Mom was a pot-smoking hippie in the '60s. Her mother and father (Mitch and Lonita) didn't know what to do with her and were embarrassed of their daughter's behavior. So, the records at Boles Home indicate that she was put there in the Summer of 1965. Shed met Dad, got knocked up and had to marry him. Our brother, Steven, was born shortly thereafter. You have to let this go.
