So....I just feel like sharing this, it's really wild and I think it took me a good 48 hours to absorb.
Some back story...........
I am 40 - a young 40 but 40 - you know the 40 where people say - really? I thought you were like 35 or younger, til my teenagers give it away type 40 years old. Anywho..........
I was raised by my dad from the age of 12 months, he and my mom split up and we never heard from her again. My dad's older sister and her husband helped me a lot - so much so that I called my Aunt - MOM, she unfortunately passed away from cancer nearly 14 years ago, but for all intense and purposes that was REALLY my "mom" - she did everything you know, like mothered me, bought be socks and underwear still as an adult, you know MOM stuff. The 3 of them did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself.
So fast forward 39 years, a husband of 17 years and 2 teenagers later and I get a facebook message on saturday that reads:
I think you are my daugther?
So I write back, we'll if you're name is so and so and you were married to so and so then YEP! It's me and (put my phone number).
She called, immediately - we talked for about an hour and then she sent me some pictures, as I had suspected, I am a deadringer for her.
It's still crazy to think that FINALLY
this has happened and I have no expectations AT ALL, I really don't, it's just nice to finally know that she did look for me. I would look off and on over the years.
So - anyway....just felt like sharing, we'll see if something comes of it or if she reaches out again, but again, nice to know she has searched.
Thanks for letting me share!
