Tamy Pelletier:

 

Tamy is Keith’s twin sister.  This is what she has to say about herself: “I’ve lived on the West Coast and the East Coast.  I’ve traveled in Europe and the Far East.  I’ve spent winters in the Bering Sea wondering when the sun would come out and summers on the Equator trying any way I could to escape it.  I’ve been a runner and a writer.  Along the way I tried to take stock.  For most of my life I was headed in the direction I was going absolutely full bore.  For a little while I thought I had it all figured out, but life has a way of exposing you for the fraud that you are even when you thought you were being sincere.  I easily divide my life into before and after meeting my birth mother. (Thanks to my brother, who knew what he needed and took me along for the ride.  I’m forever indebted).  I’m married with three young kids.  They have enriched my life in ways I did not know possible, and I pray that I can do the same for them.  My experience has taught me a lot about balance.  I’ve come to see life is about finding that balance in this inherently unbalanced world and that it is not an easy task.”
