Carla Fink
December 16, 1947 Social Worker Married
Hi Everyone -

So, where to begin?  Since I've been to most of the previous reunions, my last 50 years will not come as a big surprise to anyone I've spoken to.  

I moved up to Massachusetts to go to college and never left except for a couple of years in beautiful Cleveland (!) for graduate school.  I returned to the Boston area in 1976 as a social worker and have had  pretty good career in child and adolescent mental health since then, working in some good places - and some not so good - but feeling like I've made some contribution to the welfare of the world by relating positively to a whole lot of little kids with lots worse problems that I ever had.  And, by the way, learning a lot from them about coping and resilience.  As of this writing, I'm still at it, working not quite full time and contemplating what I'd do if I stopped working.

Ten years ago I got introduced to my college roommate's cousin, Efrem, whom I hadn't known existed, and we've been together ever since, marrying 5 years ago.  Although I never minded living alone, life has gotten to be a lot more fun since then and through him I acquired two already-grown-up step-sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren who I get to have relationships with without ever having to toilet train anyone.  Nice.

I've been blessed with a lot of great old friends, including from Beach High (Judy Jacobs Toni (Ruscol) Cohen, Judy Alster, Stephanie Oka Freed) and from college (see above) as well as new.  As an only child, I count my long-time friends as family without the battles about who gets the silver.  I'm not sure what I would have done without them. 

There have definitely been ups and down:  a lot of angst around my mother's long lingering illness and many not much fun trips to MB in the 80's and 90's, a bout with breast cancer 20 year ago (probably not a rare occurrence among our cohort) and some sad losses more recently.  I am way too superstitious to say I've been mostly lucky, but I did think it would be good to show up at our 50th reunion and be counted.  I hope we will all forgive each other if we don't remember things.  That's just how it is now, right?

Be well!!
