The 11 stories this week are written by students with the Halifax Community Learning Network (www.hcln.ca). HCLN is part of the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning and offers programs at the Captain William Spry, Halifax North, Keshen Goodman, and Spring Garden Road branches of the Halifax Public Libraries.
The story below was written by Doug, from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Doug is enrolled in literacy classes at the Halifax Community Learning Network (HCLN).
Adam and Doug Junior are my sons. I do not know where they live. They were born in different places and put up for adoption. I do love them, they are my children. Their Grandmother is not doing too well.
Adam is the oldest boy. He is 21 years old, his birthday is June the 23rd of 1989. My other son is 19 years old, Doug Junior. His birthday is July 15th of 1991.
I will be glad when I meet my son Adam. The family wants to meet Adam too. Adam and I are going to be driving bikes (when I get a bike). We are going to talk, like normal people, like Father to Son. Adam has a girlfriend, who will be my daughter-in-law if they get married. I am excited to finally meet my son.
