- Wedding: October 2012
Unfortunately,I have never met any of my grandpas. One of my them died when my father was seventeen. And the other one was out of my mothers life since she was maybe 9 or 10 or something. My mother and her 4 brothers havent seen or heard from him in YEARS. SO obviously I have never met him.
Anyway, months ago one of my cousins who is named after his father and grandfather was contacted by our grandpa’s brother! So my uncle started talking with them and the conversations started flowing.
What we learned so far is that our grandpa remarried, had 2 more kids (sons), and now lives in his home country,Mexico. His 2 newest kids though live in the USA. Oh and I learned that his 2 newest kids didnt know that they have 5 older siblings! Crazy huh? Imagine if your parents never told u that!
Anyway, my uncle has even talked to these half brothers. And it looks like they all will be coming into town sometime in September!!! Ladies I have always wanted to meet him!! I have always wanted a granddaughter and grandpa relationship!!
We never knew if he was alive still, if he remarried and had more kids, or what??? But now we do and I will be meeting him!! This probably sounds silly, but I hope he likes me. All of my cousins(except one who was adopted) and brothers all look mexican.Im the only one in the family who looks different. My looks came from my fathers side. German. I dont have black hair like everybody else(light brown with blonde and red), cannot tan to save my life(I burn more then tan,I am sooo white,lol), etc ,etc. I know that sounds silly but when u look different from everyone else, u kind of have to wonder. Will he like me?
Bees, Ive never thought I would ever see any of my grandpas. And to find out that I will be seeing one in about a month!?!? Its a miracle!! And the only thing about this whole thing that sucks, is that my uncle told me that he isnt doing so well. Hes about 79 years old. My uncle said that this might be the one and only chance of seeing him!! We will be finally seeing him, and it might be the only time?!?!?! It totally sucks. I mean maybe we could go down to Mexico to visit him, but none of us really have the cash for that.
Anyway, Im hoping for the best. Im excited but nervous. Wondering what he will be like.
Are there any other bees who have never met a family member before and then got a chance to?? A grandpa or grandma or even a parent? I know this might be a touchy subject with some. Meeting up with a family member might have not gone as u wanted. I want this to go well. Obviously there will be some serious talk between my grandpa and his kids that he hasnt seen in over 30 years. (Us grandkids will not be around for those, for obvious reasons). But Im hoping for the best.
Wish my family and I luck bees. I want the best for my family and for everyone to leave in a better relationship with each other then before.
