I've emailed my youngest brother on Facebook, but I'm not sure whether he's on his page much or whether my message has been relegated to the mysterious "Other Messages" inbox that I just found out about the other day.
I'm realizing what my mother went through after she emailed me through Myspace. She had no idea whether I would be open to a reunion with her. She had no clue what my thoughts on my adoption were. Maybe I would tell her to get lost...maybe I would want nothing to do with her.
But I was open to a reunion with her, as scary as those first bits of contact were, I wanted to get to know her. As these past four years have gone by, I forget what it was like before she was back in my life. It's like I've always known her. And I wanted that to be the case with my father as well. It appears that's not to be...but I am hopeful that my brother will open that "Other Message" and contact me.
Want a peek at him?
He is the spitting image of our father.
