Ken Posted June 19, 2005 Report Share Posted June 19, 2005 This will go down in my own personal history as a week I'll never forget. It started a couple of weeks ago when a client and I were talking. Being adopted, I told her that her last name was the same as my biological father's. I dodn't know much, just, his name and that he was deceased. She told me that he was her first cousin. Early last week she brought in a small packet of information for me which was quite a kind thing to do. The packet contained a photograph of him. Again, I had never met him, but it was one of the weirdest feelings, looking at someone bearing a striking resemblance to me, and never meeting that person. Also in the packet was a copy of his obituary. Reading that it mentioned that he was survived by a daughter in a popular Florida city. God sure does love those curveballs. I have a blood sister I didn't know of, nor she of I. I called that city's directory assistance, and called the only number listed. Alas, it wasn't her, but it was her ex-husband, and they were on good terms. He provided me with her number. I waited a bit, and built the nerve up. I placed my call, and she answered. I told her that this was going to be the weirdest call she was ever going to get. I asked about her father, name, date he had passed, etc. I had the right girl. I asked her if she knew the existance of a blood half-brother and she said no, she didn't. I said that I didn't know how to put this, but I was her half-brother. I supplied the information I had and described a photograph only she would know. She let out a whoop, and so did I. Truly, the most extrordinary weeks of my life. We exchanged photographs via e-mail, and the resemblance is comical. What a week.... Ken. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
