    all signs point to yes

    I don't know what I'm feeling right now. I am full of hope and dread, excitement, and fear.

    I couldn't give a SHIT about my father, that loser that never tried once to see me, even though I have searched and searched for any information on him.

    But I did a search on myspace, of ALL things, for my brother's name. Sure enough, there was his profile. This man that shared the same name as my brother, with the right age to be my brother. My heart was beating out of my chest and tears stung my eyes and I searched over his page, looking for some clue as to whether or not he was related to me.

    I looked at his pictures, comparing his nose to mine... the shade of blue in his eyes.

    As tears started streaking down my cheeks and the stale air of the office burning my nose as my nostrils flared, trying not to let any more tears come, I read his comments.

    Among wishes of "happy birthday" I saw one comment that stood out from the rest... "Happy belated birthday, from your Aunt Marge". Desperately hoping for more telling information, I clicked on her picture... a picture of a little girl on Santa's lap from many decades ago...

    It takes me to a page with the title "Anne's Sister"

    My heart skiped a beat as I frantically punched the numbers of my own mother's phone number on my office phone, whispering "come on.... come on.... " as the phone rang.

    When my mother answered, i tried to keep my voice from quivering, "Mom.... what is my brother's mom's name???"

    "Anne" She replies to me as my mouth went dry and a lump caught in my throat.

    So here we are, and this could be MY BROTHER!

    Oh yeah, they are also from Maryland, which is where my dad, his ex wife, and my half brother and grand parents are all from :hs:

    But seriously, that's some major stuff. I can't even imagine what it'd be like to find a sibling that age, after never knowing them.

    Oh, there was actually a story like this on Dr.Phil or something where a girl found her long lost sister over myspace.

    Things turned out great for them. :) Whatever you decide I hope the best.

    This is what I wrote to the Aunt:

    Subject: Is your sister Anne *******
    Body: My name is Faith, I am the daughter of **** ***** who was once with ****** ******, who is my father. I have never met him, but I know of a son that he had before my mother had me. he was about 5 years old when my mother was with ******. I was doing random searches on Google for "***** ******" when I found your nephew's myspace, and I just happened to see your "happy birthday" comment to ******. I followed the link to your profile to see that your title says "Anne's sister". This shocked me because my mother said *****'s mother's name is Anne. Right now, I cannot tell you how hard my heart is pumping. I wish so much to finally find my long lost brother. And I also wish to find my grand parents **** and Katherine (which is my middle name) *****. I never got to know the other half of my family, and I am so happy at the renewed hope that I may have found them!

    My cousin is adopted and found his birth family about 2 years ago. It was one of the best things that has ever happened to him and he's really close to them now.

    He also realized why they gave him up and is glad that he grew up in the family that he did. Goodluck Faith!!
