letter because I know of no other way to deliver my message I was born on Jan 3 1957 at St Marys Hospital in Tucson Ariz I was given upfor adoption by a young woman from the Midwest Ive never felt the need to find my birth mother but Ive always wanted to thank her I have the kindest most loving parents in the world I grew up in a very happy home where I was privi leged to have all the advantages a child could hope for My parents raised me to be proud that I was a chosen child I may have been too welladjusted my thirdgrade teacher sent a note home to my mother asking her to please stop telling the other kids with such enthusiasm that I was chosen by my parents from all the babies in the world and how unfortunate for them that their parents were stuck with them The poor non chosen kids were going home in tears because they werent adopted I live in Phoenix with a terrific husband and we have seven beauti ful children I still talk to my mom and dad every day So to my birth mother wherever you are I know that giving me up was the hardest most courageous thing you ever did Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the gift of a wonderful life I am signing my real name for to use if you wish Or if you prefer just sign me SUSY IN PHOENIX girl who is an avid reader of your column I couldnt help but notice how many grandparents and other relatives complain about the lack of thankyou

ABBY This is in regard to smokeless tobacco In 1967 my husband had a severe heart attack and he stopped smoking Several months later his cardiologist told him that smokeless tobacco would not be harmful After a year or so during a phys ical examination several malignant tumors were discovered in his blad der The urologist immediately scheduled surgery to remove them The urinary specialist said We dont think smokeless tobacco caused this we know it He was checked regularly from then on and had to have tumors in his bladder removed six more times before he passed away in 1994 MRS BERYL FRAZIER ARVADA COLO DEAR MRS FRAZIER My condolences on the loss of your beloved husband I hope you shared with his cardiologist what his urinary specialist told you We dont think smokeless tobacco caused this we know it DEAR ABBY I have two sons and after waiting for 15 years to become a grandmother I learned that both my daughtersinlaw were expecting their babies a week apart I would like to have a baby shower for each of them but was wondering if it would be OK to combine the showers and give one baby shower for both Two separate showers would be too expensive for I would have invitations printed up saying that the baby shower is for both my daughtersinlaw GRANDMA DEAR GRANDMA Tradition ally showers are given by friends not close family mem bers but many readers tell me that they find family members hosting showers to be perfectly OK Dont be ashamed to explain to your daughtersinlaw that the cost of two showers is more than you can afford and ask them how they feel about a joint shower Under the circumstances I doubt if the guests would resent having to bring two gifts in return for only one lunch DEAR ABBY Recently my hus band had serious throat surgery which resulted in a somewhat deeper and huskier voice This has been traumatic for him but his strong will and perseverance have enabled him to continue his teach ing profession The most painful part of his recovery has been coping with insen sitive remarks made by acquain tances who have known him for years Some examples Whats wrong with your You sound Do you have a cold Such questions make my hus band feel His self esteem is wounded Can you sug 8est a response mv husband might use when hes asked Whats wrong with your voice HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE The comments and questions indicate that peo ple care about your husband They are not meant to be rude Your husband should give these curious people the benefit of the doubt and respond candid ly Ive had throat surgery I appreciate your DEAR ABBY On a
