New Founded Family



It has been just over a month since I posted about my new founded family. It has been a month of me trying to find more information about 3 possible older brothers. 2 which may not even be alive. It has been a month of me trying to find information to add to my ever growing family tree but once again I come up with dead ends. My fathers side of the family has always been hard to track, I have been trying for years now. 

I really wish I would have known that there was even a bit of possibility I may have had siblings. I can not seem to understand why my mom never said anything, even as I was older. I know she had a son in her 1st marriage with her 1st husband but he died not too long after birth. He is my half brother, he is not too much older than me but I have spent time putting together a family tree including that side. Never knowing I had a whole other side of this tree....



Since I made the initial contact with this now older (half) sister of mine I have had a chance to talk with her more via Facebook messages and emails. I am in Florida and she and her family are all the way in Canada, but the western side, terribly far. We have talked back and forth about families and life in general. We shared any info we had about our father and his family. Her mom wants to connect with me also because she was aware of me. I am still trying to put together information and pieces with all this new information but overall I am ok with having family out there somewhere. 
I do wish that these added members did not live so far away. It would be nice to be able to connect with them on a more regular basis instead of being 2800(ish) miles away.

I will always be an only child, that was just how I grew up, but now I have actual family on my fathers side.

  1. I have the same issues, not with siblings but with one half of my family. I have not seen my mother since I was 16 because of abuse and living in foster care. I wish you luck in getting closer to your new found family members, may God bless your journey!

  9. It's a never ending itch not knowing all the details. I know... I knew from the time I was five that I was adopted by one parent, yet I often wonder was my biological father was like. I have been able to connect with siblings and extended family. However, I regret running the one chance I had to meet my biological father. He is now deceased and that moment is lost. I sympathize with you.

  13. Have you thought about Skyping with them? Could be an easier way to talk in a "face to face" kind of way.

  14. It's nice to finally connect with family, to at least get a little piece of the puzzle. It's not easy to search for people you're supposed to be related to when all the tracks are covered, but I'm glad you found one. I hope you continue to get to know each other.

  26. Families are very complex things. I have 3 half siblings too - I know who and where they are but I don't see them. I hope you manage to reach some sort of closure with them; whether you continue to only talk on Facebook or whether you can take time to visit.

  29. It is very brave of you to share something so personal. I hope you are able to connect with all of these family members. My experience has been that no one is in your corner like family, and I hope you gain some of that through your search.
