Good call, and very honorable. Tip of the hat to you both.

Agreed. That clearly was a very hard decision she had to make.

That turned out great and is very inspiring. This entices me to do the same now. Thank you for sharing.

Not a problem. Still kinda stunned by the whole thing.

I read this thread with great interest as it unfolded much like a short story. I do hope things have gone well for you and your newfound relations in the weeks that have passed, Blackhorse.

Iíve only met my brother and his son in person that one time...and a sister via a short phone call. Following that initial meeting, after my brother went back to San Francisco, Iíve only heard from him once. That in response to some photos I sent him. He hasnít given me his address or phone number. Disappointing.

Well, he WAS going on some cruise thing with ďmomĒ which might be getting in the way. And, not to be a whiner, the finding, the knowing and the meeting are all FAR more than I had before. And I never expected ANYTHING. So - Que sera sera.

Just found this thread. I missed it somehow when I perused the topics somehow.

What an interesting story. One would like to think that the meeting with an unknown sibling would be a wonderful thing, but of course it could go the other way too.

I have an estranged brother who abandoned the family some years ago. Very strange thing as he abandoned his Mother, his sister, me and even his biological daughter. Mental issues are certainly at play. I mention it only because even close family ties can come unravelled. Ours certainly did.
