A lot of people know, as per my signature that I have a missing sister. Ten months before Tracey went missing she adopted out a girl. Because of a group facebook page, this daughter has since been located. She is nineteen now and because of the adoption process Tracey had to meet with the girls adoptive mother six months after. We never knew this. Remarkedly, the girl's mother took what are the last known pictures of my sister. Prior to this picture the one used officially was taken three years prior to her disappearance. This picture was taken only 4 months prior to my sister going missing and has been discovered almost 19 years after she went missing, and is priceless to us.

I can't stop looking at it. It was only given to us a few days ago and there are others. Yes, she looks so happy, but within 4 months after this she disappeared off the face off the earth. At the time this was taken she also had a three year old daughter who is also in some of these pictures. The other daughter was removed from her custody on the 22nd December 1992 and Tracey turned up to all the custody hearings except the last one in January 1993 :(

Lovely photo of your sister, cooeedownunder, must've been not only much joy but also sadness on locating these. Though a more recent photo may help to find out what had happened, for you and your family, I sure hope it does.

Glad that you have these photos now. I'm sure they are very cherished and held dear. May God bless you and your family.

Not that anyone probably cares, since you have no idea who I am (I just joined), but here's me:

And here's my son and granddaughter:

And in another couple of months I'll be able to post a pic of my new baby, but right now he/she is still cooking. :)

Yes; she will be about one year older than her aunt/uncle.
That's a trend in my family... my little sister is younger than my son (her nephew).

I was guessing that was you, kind of look like your avie. :D Nice pic.

maybe you shouldn't dig into your new friend's brain, at least not where the other new friends can see you. Pick 'em off one by one. :D

He is! He scared everyone by being born six weeks early, but you'd never know it. He's been groovin' since day one.

He's a month old. Technically, my sister-in-law should still be pregnant for two more weeks.

Amazing comeback for the little guy. Bet all the love he gets is what made him grow. He's so adorable!

Thanks, guys. He really is very cute. My daughters are 12 and 8 and have taken up a campaign for me to have another baby. Yikes!

I have to say, though, baby gadgets and supplies just keep getting cooler. My sister-in-law has stuff that made me retroactively jealous.
