This lovely woman, who sent her words of support when my mother died, lost a brief battle with cancer on December 14. I attended her funeral the week before Christmas.
Corinne was a mentor and a savior. A specialist in adoption troubles, she provided invaluable input when Victor and I were struggling to do the right things.
Over the past 24 months, I had been traveling down to Hingham a few times a year to lunch with her and with Linda Grillo, another great mentor in the adoption community. She pressed me during those lunches to get myself certified so that I could treat children. I hope that that's the path that I'm on.
