My half sister, Lavone came to town Sunday evening. She lives in North Carolina, and hadn't been out to San Diego since she was about 17. Lavone is my dad's first daughter. My brother, sister and I grew up here in San diego. She grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, I met her less than a half dozen times in my life. We reconnected a few years ago when our dad was in the hospital. My oldest sister was against informing Lavone that our dad had been hospitalized. I thought it was very important for her to know. So I tracked her down and called. We connected right away! We began chatting on the phone, then emailing about once or twice a week. This is the sister I always wanted! We talked about what each of us did for a living, and when I had bead workshops in her area, I stayed a couple of days extra and we met. I love having a sister I can be close to.
