For those of you who aren't my friends on Facebook or the forums, I have news.  Good news...fantastic news even!  My nfather wrote my mom.  He's in shock...but told her he's "definitely open to contact with our daughter".

So now, WHAT THE HELL DO I SAY TO HIM????  ::thud::  It was SO much easier being the "findee" and not the "finder".  I am not sure how brief or how wordy to get with the first email. 

I have no stinking clue what I'm doing and I'm panicking.  BIG TIME. 

I have no idea if his wife or step daughters know about me...and like C said, he might have "some 'splaining" to do.   I feel like a fish out of water and really need someone to slap me upside the head to restart my brain.


  1. Eeeeeep! *SLAP* Breathe!! Be honest.. Be YOU! Something like this.. "Hi, I have no idea where to start of what to say.....but its nice to meet you!" I LOVE this post!! YAY!!

  2. Wow! Just breathe…and be yourself…I know you will say exactly what needs to be said and when it needs saying.

  3. Take a big deep breath and just be yourself. Ypu are amazing and I am so happy for you.

  4. "Dear Dad,


    Christina", that's not what I sent. I was just playin'.

    SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, I keep writing and rewriting and it just isn't coming out right!!! ::inhale..exhale..inhale...exhale::

  5. I am so very excited for you! I mean, seriously? Days before Christmas???

    Just be yourself. You know the drill. He's a lucky man.

  6. Wow! I'm excited (and nervous) for you! I just e-mailed you the other day wondering about this. E-mail if you want to talk and/or need support. Thinking about you, girl~

  7. I am thrilled for you! Take the time to figure out what you want to say. It's fine to write and rewrite and feel unsure. The water seems like it's a good temperature for jumping in, though. Much love to you. This is fabulous news.

  8. That is VERY cool Christina, wow. I'm glad he said yay and not nay, excellent! Good luck : )

  9. Wonderful news Christina!

    I am very happy for you-- be yourself, nobody could or should ask for more.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  10. Oh Christina! I am SO happy for you!! I have nothing to add to the advice you have already received, I just wanted to say congrats. I wish you a Merry Christmas, although I think it is already very merry for you :D


  11. Oh my, Christina! How did I miss this news yesterday?????? I am so thrilled for you. I have no advice other than be yourself. Best of luck - I can't wait to hear more!!!!
