Where are My Brothers and Sisters? In December of 1953, Mom and Dad had their thirteenth child, who was at that time, their only child. Mom and Dad lived with Terry Joe, my youngest brother, in a cabin on the banks of White River, in Indiana. He graduated from Shawswick High School. He did most things that ordinary boys wanted, and possibly more. He just didn't get to grow up having contact with most of his older brothers and sisters. Mom and Dad had kept him hidden, so that he wouldn't be taken away like the others. He would often ask, "Where are my brothers and sisters?" He only knew us through Mom's memories, which many a time became too painful for her to talk to him about us.
From joy to sadness, those powerful free verse and traditional poems relate to many experiences of life which can be akin to anyone.
