I have been a UFDC member since 1997 as part of the Black Gold Doll Club of new England (BGDC). My first UFDC convention was in Washington, DC in 1999 and I have not missed one since. Besides getting married and having my 3 children, that first convention was the best thing I have ever done. My other passions are genealogy and black history and I try to combine all three when I can. My involvement with UFDC and the wonderful people I have met through it makes my life whole.
