Hi, I found my birth mother two years ago and last week, I found and phoned my birth father. I am due to meet him on Wednesday! He had no idea that my birth mother was pregnant and no knowledge of my existence I am fortunate that he is over the moon about me contacting him. He has eight children and I make nine. I am the older by two years of his oldest child. I am going through a rollercoaster of emotions, but have already found a lot in common. His 22yr old daughter looks the image of me (albeit a good few pounds lighter LOL) We are both singers. Happy girl. Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your news with us…we hope it turns out well and you are able to establish a meaningful relationship with this new family. If you need any support in any way as you go through this life-changing process, please contact the British Association for Adoption and Fostering for help. We’ll be thinking of you.
