Random - this (adopted) Italian just found out she has an Irish grandmother!

Just got my papers from the adoption agency.  I was adopted at 4 months old from Catholic Charities.  Turns out I was the result of a one night stand - father was still married to someone else.

Turns out my mother's mother was Irish.

For someone who was raised by an entirely Italian family (mother and father are second cousins, even), this feels... strange.

So yah!  I'm Dutch, German, and... ta daaaa! ...Irish!

Not sure where else I could have posted this even though it's only slightly relevant.  Just kind of weirding out with self-identification issues right now.  :P

So here is how it works. You are very expressive talker including your hands, but you can throw a string of blarney a mile long. ;) ::chuckles:: Wait, that fits me too and as far as my mutt heritage goes, there is no Italian or Italian influence. Hehe! Of course, you are the best part that came out of this and I'm sure by now you know who you are despite being adopted. =) And you fit in the Gaiscioch family just fine from what little I know.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D
