You read that right. I am the son of a nun. Well to be more precise, an ex-nun. My mom was a member of the order of the Roman Catholic Sisters of Wisdom in Edmundston, Canada from the age of 18 until she was 26. She left the convent as only the second one in Canadian history to do so without being excommunicated. After her departure she continued to teach, met my dad, raised a family and welcomed seven grandchildren. She and dad are now retired and live enjoyable, peaceful lives at our family farm.
