I agree. I found a half-sib I never knew existed when I was 23. I had grandiose ideas of how it would play out. I wasnít bad, but wasnít good either. Go into this with no expectations and glean what may be good from it.
I hope the best for you guys.

Had a really great weekend meeting my dad. He was so worried what I was going to think of him. I told him not to worry about the past we only have now and whatever the future holds. Itís really hard to wrap my head around the fact that I finally met him.

I can tell it breaks his heart that he wasnít able to be there for me. It wasnít his fault. Iím doing my best to reassure him. I grew up calling another man dad. He passed away ten years ago. This is taking some adjustment on my part but I am up to the task.

Glad it all worked out.

I had a ex-BIL that did the same thing. After the initial meetup, He told his dad to stop by and visit if he was ever in town. When he got back home, the dad was waiting in the driveway with a uhaul and all his stuff. It took him 6 months to finally run the guy off.
