My mother and I talked a little bit about my birth father and his family recently. She has always been uncomfortable talking about them because she has bad memories of whatever situation happened when I was born, so i have tried to respect her feelings. I did meet my birth grandmother years ago. She is a very nice lady.
About a month ago, I was trolling facebook and discovered my biological cousin. She has some mutual friends as me. We even went to school together for a short time, but I did not know who she was. According to my mother, she knew who I was, but had been instructed not to tell me who she was.
Just for “gee wiz”, I sent her a friend request, and she accepted. Well, well, well, lo and behold as I looked through some of her pics, I saw him…my birth father. It just made me feel weird for some reason.
