This is a picture of my brother Bernard Lawrence Taliaferro when he was about nine or ten years old. Today is Bernard’s 53rd birthday. I love this picture of him as a little boy because I missed out on his childhood, and the many adventures that siblings share. Bernard and I share the same father, but we did not grow up together. I only discovered I had a brother in 2005. But, if you see us together you would think we’ve known each other forever – since the beginning. It’s been that way since the first day we met; we are soulmates. Bernard is my best friend and my protector. Fate put us together at just the right time for both of us. God made him the perfect brother, especially for me.
Happy Birthday “Baby “B”. I love you.
