Here recently I’ve had some life changes happen to me that was like opening the window in a storm. Its blown me away. I’ll explain and in this explanation, maybe I find a little understanding of my own in telling this family story. You have already read about me meeting my son for the first time. A very personal and exciting meeting that was long over due. I was ecstatic about the meeting but it was just the beginning of the storm and the wind was only a teaser, of what was to come.
The wind begin to blow with the ringing of the phone. Usually, I don’t answer, if the number calling isn’t one that I know. For some unexplained reason, I answered this call. On the other end of the line, was a person explaining that he was a private investigator. He was working for an individual trying to find me who claimed to be my younger brother.
Brother, and that’s when I said that I don’t have a brother, and you must have the wrong person. I ended the call not thinking much about it. I’m an only child, and all my life I lived with the fact I had no brothers or sisters. Well that little wind blowing turned into a full blown gale, when shortly after this conversation, the phone rang again and it was my Aunt. She too, had received a call and she knew nothing at all about her own sister having another child after me.
To make a long story short, I have a younger brother. Isn’t life strange. We have talked twice upon the phone and through email. I’ll try to piece it all together when I have it all sorted out in my head.
