I want to take a break from my life Story for now.....You see Our boarder Brad Crawford just told me a facsinating tale and I thought I would relate that story to you ... before continuing with mine. For those who have not met him this is Brad... He came into my life several months ago when My Mom was advertising a room for rent and he answered the ad We became fast friends after a few stumbles and misunderstandings. Brad said the strange dreams started about a couple of weeks ago after he met my friends Dad Miles... He said he saw faces in the dreams that he did not recognize, yet he felt he should. The Dreams left him feeling uneasy, like there was something he should know but did not. He said the dreams interrupted and disturbed his sleep And at the end of the dream he always heard a judges gavel pounding but not what was being said. The next day Brad went on line and looked up his birth certificate and found out his true last name before adoption was Monroe.... Further searching did not bring him any closer to the mystery his dreams hinted at. That night he dreamt the dream again, He saw the faces of a woman and a man and a boy .. He saw the boy weeping and he heard the sound of the judges gavel again Even a sleeping pill that he took the next night did not keep the dream at bay.

He then decided to call the one person who might shed some light on this mystery
He called is adopted brother Ben, in hopes that Ben could help shed some light on his past...
Ben told him what he already knew , but then meantioned something that he did not know or maybe he did but had blocked the memory for his mind... That he had a brother who was adopted by another couple

The memories came flooding if a dam had given way
He now knew who the couple was in his dreams... they were his parents.. His father's name was Miles and his mothers name was Monica. And they were very much in love He remembered his mother most of all because she had the same color of hair he had... and the same eyes He remembered he had an older brother ,his name was Miles Jr. Miles Jr looked like their father his name sake He remembered all the fun tmes he had with his father And he remembered his brother loved to play the piano He remembered that he grew up well in the house surrounded by his family and friends So did Miles... both oif them were doing well in school and enjoyed a happy life They were also fast friends despite the difference in their ages... Brad rememebered that things were going well til he turned 14yrs old That was when his mother became suddenly ill one day after cleaning the toilet Some say she came in contact with some toxic gas that leaked out of the sewer, what ever the cause she died suddenly. Nothing could revive her and Death came and took her to the afterlife Brad remembered the horrible pain he felt at losing his mother and at seeing his brother so upset as well But more pain full was seeing how his mother's death affected his father, he was inconsolable He remembered begging God to return his mother to him and his family He also remembered ..that For weeks all his father did was cry at his mother's the grave site Or just site in his Lounge chair, saying nothing to Brad or his brother Brad remembered watching his father slowly withdraw from him, from life Even his brother Miles Jr became remote and distant And that is when he remembered the final event that caused him so much trauma that he blocked all memories of his family and his brother from his mind... His father also died from Remorse, .. Again Death visited and took his father to the afterlife... Brad remembers that Miles was in shock... he did not speak for a long time Their father was laid to rest next to their mother his wife... He remembered that the last words Miles spoke to him was for him to grow up strong... He remembered that is when the social worker came and took them away... and Miles was sent to a Hospital for the Mentally ill and he was eventually adopted by Mr and Mrs Crawford Brad spent hours searching for his older brother Miles on the net and through records... He Managed to hack into the Mental Hospital that Miles was sent to and learned that Miles was also adopted into a family with the last name of Roche... And then it hit him why Miles Roche looked so familair..

Miles had to be his Missing older brother
Brad called Miles and after a lengthy conversation confirmed that Miles was also adopted...They are
agreed to met. To see if what they both suspected was true
Mile came over and they had a very lengthy conversation... and each came to the same conculsion that they were infact brothers.... Miles had been searching for Brad for a long time but when he could not get Brad's adoption records he was stymied.. He had just about given up finding Brad The two newly found brothers embraced. Miles knew he would have to tell his daughter about Brad and Brad knew that he would have to introduce Miles to Ben, Mandy Sue, Andre and of course Karla and Mickey Miles it turned out lived just several houses away , So Brad knew he would be seeing alot more of his older brother, for which he was glad... they had missed so much already . He did not want to miss out on his brother's life any longer. Brad knew that he would never again forget who he was or where he came from This was Brad's story.... and it had a happy ending.... I hope mine does too I am Trent and I will continue my story shortly.... thank you for allowing me to share Brad's story
