Did you notice any changes? It's not a typo. On April 21st I was contacted via MySpace by a half sister whom I knew about but hadn't seen in about 25 years. I had seen pictures and was aware of a total of 3 sisters but had no contact. But she told me that I have 5 sisters. We all have the same biological father. The mixture of emotion I felt is so hard to describe: shocked, confused, overwhelmed, scared, happy, anxious, full of questions, etc. They sought me out! One sister had remembered my name when she was a child. Good thing my name is unique. What a wonderful feeling for someone to search for you, care for you and not even know you. If you're thinking...Lifetime Movie plot...I know :)
So, do you think we favor? I have only personally met one sister. She lives near me. I have communicated with the others (who are spread out around the US). There are plans in the works for us to meet this fall. You can never have too many people to care about or who care about you. I am so anxious to meet them, to see their mannerisms, hear their voices, share stories and such.
I know God has perfect timing and it is too bad that we couldn't have known about each other as we grew up, but at least this amazing adventure is happening now. I am grateful that they pursued me and have given me the opportunity now, instead of years down the road or possibly never, to get to know them and be part of their lives.
So, I woke up on April 21st-did my normal routine of life as an only child. I went to bed that night as a sister.
