Well its February, I’ve meant to write a few posts in January to help get me focused, and back to writing, but it just didn’t happen. My first post was to be about my sister who I had just met for the first time just a little over a year ago. I wanted to share some pictures and just how much crazy fun it’s been, connecting. I had even started writing the post but it just didn’t happen.
See right when I was selecting pictures from the past year, my sister ask that I call her. When I did so she wanted me to get my brother on three way since she had something important to share with us. She began telling us about how someone had sent her a facebook request and pretty much disregarded the person since she saw no connection them. Nothing that would lead her to believe she knew the woman. A few days latter a cousin of her’s called her about the same person inquiring about trying to get in contact with her. Turns out this woman is her, our little sister. She had spent time searching for biological mother with no progress since she didn’t even know her name. So a family member suggested that she look up her sister which she did have a name for. Turns out that my little sister’s name isn’t all that common and was the only name that popped up with our newly found little sister typed her name into facebook.
So this little drama kind of threw my planned post about my first year with my sister to another post of, I have another sister, and another niece. I’m happy for the most part but like I have expressed to family it’s a little bitter sweet (which I promise to address in a future post). So for the past three weeks we’ve been texting, chatting, skyping, using Google hangouts to keep in touch. She (My new Little sister) lives in Florida, and plans on coming up to New York in the early spring where we will finally get together and meet face to face for the first time.
I used to be one of eight sibling’s now I’m one of ten siblings. Where in the group of one of eight I was the second youngest, in the biological group of one of four I am the oldest. Sounds crazy! Honestly not even sure how to end this post, but I guess another year and another sibling, Expected to be as fun filled as the last one, as the family grows.
