Touching story.

Why did the nanny wait until she was on her deathbed to tell Marry Ann about her early life and father, and show her the pictures?

Any relation to Stevie Ray Vaughn, the musician? He was also from N. Texas, but near Dallas.

Some details missing, especially about why the nanny waited until she was dying to fill her in. I am guessing her nanny didn't want to lose her. Very sad story, but glad she finally got some answers and some closure in the end.

Now she has to file American income taxes every year and that is more sad than the entire story.

I wish her luck.

Excellent story JT! Being adopted myself I can understand her questions of why? Who am I? Where do I come from? It took me years to figure these things out through research and dealing with the U.S adoption legal system. In return I have been blessed with new relations and a deeper understanding of why I am. I never encountered the extreme difficulties of Mrs. Kuroda being that I was born and raised in the US. I am truly grateful to my adoptive parents for the love and support they have given me. I hope the same for Mrs. Kuroda with her new found relatives in the US.
