A Brother Beloved. Dark broad-shouldered Gene was her responsibility since their mother past when she was only nine. He had been away ‘behind the iron curtain’. It brought him back a changed man. He is normal, said the doctors. She knew better, and ‘utterly powerless to help him.’ She prayed urgently to God for him to restore the teasing lad who brought her torment and joy. God put in motion an answer to her prayer which ‘failed to fit her preconceptions.’
They decided to take an ‘unplanned return to the abandoned family home.’ Joyce told him stories of when he was born and a second child also born on the same day at their home. The doctor had asked if his patient could stay with them since she lived on a farm that was terrible to get to due to the condition of the road to the farm. The patient was also a pregnant woman due about the same time as Mrs. Matthews, Joyce’s mother. Nellie took care of the house and her husband took care of the farm land, they were on.
When Gene found out that he may have a “twin”, he insisted that they go and search for the family. All it took was a trip to the grocery store and Gene had his answer. The Fulton family had moved closer to town and he was told where the farm was. Gene insisted that they go over there immediately. Joyce stayed in the car thinking this was a bold move but Gene was out of the car and went to meet the young man who had stood up at the sound of the car. Before Joyce knew it she had met Herb and Mr. & Mrs. Fulton again.
