The Look of Love: The Tale of My Two Jennys, UpdateApril 12, 2016, by Leslie Roberts Clingan
Each time I had an opportunity to substitute in one of the school district's libraries over the past two years, I would try to locate Jenny's daughter Daisy in the circulation database. It has the names of all of the children enrolled in the El Paso Independent School District, along with the name of the school where they are registered, and sometimes even the address and home phone number.
Mary was so kind to do a little investigating for me.
I felt a little like an adopted child seeking her birth mother.
The last names Hilverding and Clingan, although good German names, aren't easily pronounced in El Paso.
On March 15, I sent the card through the school mail to Beall Elementary for Mary to deliver to Daisy.
if there was any hope that I might hear something back.
And she answered.
She kept me company in the doctor's office (PC has the flu and the doctor wanted to put me on Tami-flu, just in case).
Daisy looks just like she did when I last saw her five years ago.
Jenny saved my phone number and so did Daisy.
I, of course, saved theirs.
