Roland has two daughters, age 22 and 20. When they were younger, Frances liked to draw and paint - mostly paint, but she learned a variety of artistic methods. Pamprin was very theatrical. She enjoyed singing and performing. Both were skilled at what they enjoyed.
Their biological mother had enrolled each in various classes according to their interests. Pamprin had performed in the Salt Lake children's choir. Her mother also drove her to several auditions for commercials. Frances had entered several of her paintings into contests. One she had painted of Adam and Eve. It hung on our wall for a few weeks before she took it down to enter in another contest. We never saw it again.
When I first started blogging, I hadn't mentioned the true identities of Roland's ex or his two oldest girls - or any of us really. There have been so many complications with the ex that my mentioning their names would have probably just complicated things further. We have wanted to stay in touch, but evidently, the feeling is not mutual. That doesn't mean that we've forgotten them or don't think about them.
They had moved from Utah to Hawaii three years before I started my blog. They must have moved to Kansas (or maybe Missouri) just shortly after we had moved to West Valley. Through Google and referring links, I have discovered that Pamprin has won awards playing Kala in the musical of Tarzan and now performs as an Alto in a church choir. Unlike me, who have joined the church choir solely for body count, Pamprin really does have a nice voice (or I assume she sings even better than the last time I heard her) Frances is a student at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's nice to know that they were able to pursue their dreams. I hope that they continue and can use their talents to their benefit.
Still would be nice if we could learn these things from them. I hope that one day they will have the desire to reach out to their dad or brothers or even Jenna - who really doesn't know them, but knows of them.
