I was checking a message on FaceBook when suddenly a new one came in. It was from someone I thought might be my half brother. I’d sent the message in April and figured either he never got it or he wasn’t the right person. It turns out he’d never seen the message. But guess what? He is my half brother! Within minutes we were relaying information and I was actually on the phone with my biological father!
It was scary to think of talking to him after 36 years. It was awesome though. He’s so cool! We have a lot in common, and talking to him was so easy and wonderful. We talked quite a bit and I was actually able to learn a lot of truths about my past. I have information now that I never had before.
One of the greatest things was finding out that he had been looking for me too. He never stopped trying. His current family knew I was out there, and my half-brother seemed excited that I had made contact. So he had loved me all this time, and had been looking for his child. What a feeling! He actually said “I love you” to me, and I really believed it.
This is just so exciting for me. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen, but there it is! I tell you, the sickness I felt earlier has been totally washed away by the excitement and joy. This has turned into a wonderful day. My whole family here was excited to hear what I’d learned and how the conversation went. It is truly a happy day!
Dad (I can finally say that!) is even going to learn to use the internet some more so we can keep in touch. How cool is that?
