Ok, just incase you don't know my story, I will tell you and make it short. I adopted an infant from Guatemala in August of 2007. I have recently found info that gives me the address of her biomom and biosister. I wanted to contact them and I also was thinking of sending money like say $100 (which goes a long long way in Guatemala) because i know she is living in poverty and can barely feed her first child, and that is the reason she gave up her second child. BUT does sending money sound like a bad idea? I have been thinking about it and can't decide if I should help her or not. I mean, it gets complicated once you start thinking about it. I just want to help her, and feel bad for her. I am NOT RICH. I make $11 per hour on a part time job. But I have so much to be thankful for when I compare my life to hers. I live in a two family, not a single family home, so by no means am I the average american. But I have a great roof over my head, and I have food and clothing and a good car and a great supportive husband. She has none of this! Should I send her money as a way of trying to help somebody I care for in a third world country or should I not and just send her a letter?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
