Without going into gory detail, I have a 29 year-old half brother. I met him once when he was a baby so obviously he doesn't remember me. Over the years there have been a couple requests for me to be receptive if he decided to call me. The last time was 15 years ago and I told my father that I was willing to speak with him but I'd be honest if he asked serious questions. I believed he deserved to know the truth about his origins if he came looking. My father dropped it at that point (too many dirty secrets). Now the issue has been raised again. My initial reaction yesterday was "Your family is who raised you, blood related or not. Two dogs can fuck and reproduce, it's my father's problem, he's the one who shot a load into ---------". I slept on it and awoke with a new perspective. This guy must have a ton of unanswered questions. He probably feels like I got something he didn't. He's been told of all of us. This feels like the Jerry Springer show. I have two good friends who were adopted and sought out (and found) their birth families. I can't possibly know what that is like. Anyone else?
