Three Half Sisters-my final memoir’s working title

Three Half Sisters will be the title of my memoir I will write by the end of this semester. My memoir piece will be anywhere from 4,000 to 5,000 words long. I remember in the short book Living to Tell the Tale one chapter talks about using photographs and writing about photographs. There is a picture in an old family photo album of my three half sisters holding me when I was a baby. The picture was taken in a mosque. I don’t know but I’m guessing it’s the mosque my deceased biological father was a member of. We all share the maiden name Karim including me of course.  I am not in touch with my three half sisters and that used to make me sad but I had to accept the fact that they don’t seem to want me in their lives…
