Mothers DNA has been confirmed.
Going to give writing about myself a go, I don't believe I am very interesting.
I was born 3rd March 1972 Kogarah, NSW, Australia, to a wonderful woman, Stephanie Glynn. Father is unknown.
I don't feel the need to repeat the early years which are already covered in Stephanie Glynn's bio regarding her marriage and my siblings.
I lived in the suburbs of East Hills, NSW until I was 2 years old, then Cloverdale, Rivervale and Kewdale, WA, Australia until my late teens.
I attended Kewdale Senior High School - no longer a high school, it merged with Belmont Senior High School during the 1990s.
I left school at 14 years of age to have my son Cameron James Maurice (Vanden Driesen) Glynn. We lived with my mother until I was 17 years old. We moved to a flat in Karawara (near Manning) WA, Australia. We lived there for 5 years.
When I turned 21 years of age, I decided to change my surname back to my birth name. Due to Mum marrying, her husband adopted me. However changing back to my original birth name wasn't as simple as I hoped. My adoption records were sealed. I had to change my name by Deed Poll. I also had to ask permission from some one who had the surname I wanted. So I asked Maurie Glynn (my Pa), he naturally gave me his permission.
This also meant my son could start his first year of school with a much shorter surname and one a bit easier to spell.
I had my ups and downs like any one lets just sum it up with Sex, Drugs & Rock-n-Roll - that should cover all the bases. But no I wasn't a groupie or junkie or hooker. Though would have loved to be a groupie, meeting INXS, Culture Club, Spandau Ballet... ..sorry lost train of thought ;)
In 1994 I had moved back home for a personal reason, but by early 1995 I had moved to Victoria Park. In March 1995 my daughter Jaide-Lara Allesin Pearl Glynn arrived.
After 2 years in Victoria Park, we moved to Lynwood, WA, Australia. We lived there for 15 years.
My son left home during this time when he was about 21 years old.
My daughter & I then moved to Parmelia and lived there for 5 years and currently (2019) live in Warnbro, WA Australia.
I became a Grandmother in 2016 when my son and his wife had their first child and again in 2018 when they had their second.
My wonderful, patient, strangely understanding mother passed away 17th June 2019, (2 months before writing this) I held her hand as she took her last breath. I was strong, I didn't cry, not once. I smiled at her the entire time, I stroked her hair, I told her she did good. I told her she didn't have to worry about me, I was going to be ok (she called me the grey sheep of the family), 10 minutes she took her last breath and I felt her hand go cold.
After several hours I drove to her best friends house, Heather Stewart to let her know about Mum, Heather wasn't in good health either.
Sadly the day after my mum's funeral (28th June 2019), Heather Stewart passed away - 29th June 2019. I like to think of that day now as the day 2 friends got back together. Heather was like a second mum to me for almost 40 years of my 47, and was an amazing supportive and selfless person those 12 days between my mother passing and Heather's.
So that's me . .. :) Oh yeah never married - I have 2 kids why would I want a 3rd ;)
And at the time of writing this (30th Aug 2019), yesterday was Mum's birthday ... Happy 70th Mum :)
