My deep, dark secret is out, published in print, spoken over the airwaves, publically acknowledged: I am a "plygie kid"--28th of 48 children born to my father, Dr. Rulon Clark Allred, and my mother, Mabel Finlayson Allred, his fourth wife. May I apologize to all of you I misled into believing that I was a generic teenager with a small dash of rebellion? I'm sorry that I didn't connect with you more honestly in high school; please understand that I was protecting my family, for I grew up with the threat that being truthful could send my parents to prison and result in us children being placed in foster homes. Bruce Solomon was one of two people I told the truth of my background; perhaps this, in addition to a good deal of chemistry, predisposed us to marry a few months after graduation, before he went to Vietnam to serve with the U.S. Marine Corps near the DMZ. We had our first daughter, Denise, while he was overseas. She was a good reason for him to come home, and as the mother of three and a labor and delivery nurse, she has proven to be a big contributor. Bruce's survival was further underscored by the birth of our second daughter, Layla, mother of five and a communication trainer/life coach. Then we had a son, Jeff, who is a successful financial advisor with an organization bearing the family name. Our baby--"Sister Golden Hair Surprise"--who came to console me following the assassination of my father--has just competed in the Mrs. International pageant, where she made the final cut of 64 delegates and won the Fitness Award.
It truly has been a roller-coaster ride. Early on, during the years when I juggled motherhood and scholarship at the University of Utah, and later, while I was teaching junior high and college, even before I had heard of PTSD and Agent Orange poisoning, I knew that Bruce and I were in trouble. To alleviate matters in our marriage, we took a human development course and not only salvaged our relationship but found important life work. Together, we served as communication facilitators and personal growth coaches for 30 years, opening human development centers in several cities across the United States and in China. Exhausted by the travel and the demanding, fulfilling work of conducting marathon trainings, we changed paths. Bruce earned a second Master's Degree and we moved to St. George where he delivers therapy to combat veterans and their families and I teach writing at Dixie State University. I've published four books, with another forthcoming next year, but there are manuscripts I've begun and I'm trying to finish before its too late. It's not easy because I love being a grandmother more than anything--it truly is the best part of life--and we have fourteen grandchildren! Better yet, we are the United Nations: our family contains many colors and ethnic backgrounds: Korean, Chinese, Hispanic, Mohawk, Italian, African American plus English-Scotch-Irish-Scandinavian-European. We are rich in love and resoundingly blessed.
