    31 years later, she tells me.

    It's a boy!

    I was married to her maybe a few months (she says it was 63 days), she was kinda psycho. We split & she met a man, realized she was pregnant, I'd disappeared in a drunken frenzy & hadn't any idea she was pregnant. The man married her, gave the child his name and raised him. They had 3 other sons and it all was fine. Except a year back, that child became curious and wanted information. They located me (it's a rare name) and made contact. Then we got together and met. Even though he looks like family (my mom's brothers thick wavy black hair and my dad's nose) I needed proof. All agreed, we had the testing done (3X, I wanted to be sure) and each test said he's mine.

    Naturally he's a charming young man just like his dad.:smile:. He graduated college (whew! escaped that expense:biggrin1:) and is happy in life, with a good job and life partner. I guess we'll take it a little at a time.

    After all these years I have a son! it'll give symmetry to family pics with me & my daughters.:smile:.

    Congratulations! It's going to be interesting getting to know him!

    I agree Hoss Cartwright isn't that common a name. Probably pretty easy to find you. Look for the Ponderosa.....and there you are.

    Congrats...I had an ex gf that I fucked just about everyday without protection (thinking the pull out method worked) for 3 months back when I was 18 and all of a sudden she moved to her aunts in San Diego and I never heard from her and her parents asked me to stop coming over to try to find out where she was...About 5 months later my sister said she saw her, she looked like she was ready to pop but she couldn't catch her as she was on the trolly and my ex gf was getting into a car with an older lady. I assume her aunt...So I can only guess???

    Same thing happened to my dad...before he met and married my mom. Only he slept with the woman once and wasn't married to her. We found out about my brother when I was 37ish...making my brother close to 50.

    Thanx.

    Hmmmm.....my real name isn't actually Hoss...
    Thanx.

    Thanx. Yeah he seems very well grounded & adjusted in life.
    Thanx.
    Be ready 20-30 yrs. hence when there's a knock at the door.

    Thanx.

    I have a feeling it happens much more than we even suspect.

    Thanx & it truly is a gift.

    Definitely is.

    Thanx.

    Thanx.

    My goodness. I think you and the mom did the right thing though. How fortunate that you both moved on to better places and there was a happy home for your children.
