Wow! Yes, I can imagine you are probably feeling quite overwhelmed and lots of emotions at once. Even though you said your mom doesn’t like to talk about your biological parents, do you think she might fill you in (if you think there’s something she might be keeping to herself) if she were to know this man had reached out and you may possibly further be in communication and/or meet?

Happy to hear you also have your SO for support and a listening ear :).

My brother was adopted, and he recently found his birth mom.  I know that there are some huge emotions involved, and I’m sure you’re still trying to process everything.  I hope everything goes well and that you get what you need out of this experience.  Congratulations!

@iiiEllie:  Wow, that is crazy news! I’m sorry that your mom isn’t being supportive, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I know if it were me, I’d want to know everything. You share his DNA, that’s important stuff.

Keep us updated! I hope everything goes well for you 🙂

I don’t want to freak you out but I just had a random thought: here in Australia there was a high profile case in which the birth father (the boyfriend of the biological mother) was not the biological father. i.e. the biological mother slept with someone other than her boyfriend, and this other guy was the biological father. I’m not sure how common this is, but you might want to consider a DNA test.

(The birth father went on to be a prominent politician who will probably be our next Prime Minister, which is why this made the news).

That is very exciting! I met my biological father when I was 15. (Not adopted, he was just a deadbeat.) I had never seen any pictures of him. It was very strange! The resemblance between us is very strong, even more so the resemblance between one of my ‘new’ siblings and I! It was nice to finally see that I look like someone… I don’t look like anyone in my moms family.

Plus it’s nice to have access to your family medical history. My father is lactose intolerant, and I discovered the source of my gastrointestinal distress. Plus some of those new siblings might be pretty cool.

@iiiEllie:  What adoption registry did you sign up at? DP’s mother is adopted and is looking for her birth family and hasn’t had any luck.
