My natural mom and sister came out to visit for the weekend and to see Maddie sing at the Holiday Stroll in town. My sister ended up going out to see some of her friends in the area Friday night so my mother and I got a chance to talk.
C: I found him. On Facebook.
Me: Him? Who, my ex? Yeah, I found him too..haha.
C: No, HIM. He's in North Carolina...married, looks like he has two step-daughters.
C: I wanted to tell you before I wrote him...to see what you thought. To see if you WANTED me to write him. I'm not sure what he'll say. He might end up telling me to fuck off...but I'd rather he say that to me, than to you.
Me: Makes sense. I guess I'd just want him to know that I only want to talk to him if he wants to talk to me, you know?
C: (hugging me) I know.
She showed me his Facebook profile picture. The rest of his page was relatively private. His wife looks a bit kooky...but whatever. Couldn't really see details on the picture. But now I find myself obsessed with finding out more. I'm not sure whether he'll want to talk to me...seeing as he sent back all of C's letters and never responded to her phone calls before I was born...but maybe he's changed. Stranger things have happened, right?
I'm prepared for whatever...just still in shock I guess.
