The maternal instinct

I met and married Sharon at a time (late 70s) when mixed race marriages were rarer than they are today. She had only been over in the UK for about a couple of years (she’s originally from St Kitts) when we were introduced by a mutual friend at the hospital where we both worked.

We would have loved to have had a family of our own, but unfortunately after several years of trying for a baby, it transpired that I was shooting blanks. Nevertheless we were (and are still) very much in love.
