    To have a contest for something that makes life easier kind of goes with the spirit of your book, Kathleen. You and Janice really make it easy to get healthy and drop excess pounds.

    Janice weights 105 pounds and is 5’5″. I have never seen her so confident. You might know that Marla (our older daughter who is in grad school at Boston U) must have skinny genes. Marla weighs 100 and is 5′– but loves to wear high heels.

    Mary Alice, we are so lucky. I know you and Rob are looking into either foster care or adoption. Unless I’m reminded, I forget that Janice and Marla are adopted. And, they are very close to my biological sons (Jeff, Johnny, and Ted) from my first marriage.

    Marla was eight months. She was born in Santa Barbara county in Honduras where most of the population is a mix of Portuguese, Mayan, and Black. Janice was five months old and had lived since infancy in a Colombian orphanage. She is Spanish-Indian-Black decent. We are truly blessed.

    Yes, Marla has abandonment issues. She was very attached to her birth family sister who quit school to care for her while their mother worked in a hand laundry. When her mother decided on adoption, Marla was moved to foster care. We were matched with her through International Children’s Services, but the red tape took time, and Marla became attached to her foster family. When we finally were able to get Marla home at eight months, she had been ripped from two loving people.
    Janice was in an orphanage where she was not cuddled or spoken to. Bottles were propped. She was way behind developmentally. Her speech was slow in coming and needed to be in special ed because of an auditory processing disability. She is fine now. Her grades for last semester: 2 A’s and 2 B’s.

    Marla has more emotional problems, and as a psychology major is able to understand them. With dating, she always chooses guys who she can boss around and control. She’s afraid they will go away if they are not constantly worshipful.
