Wow! I haven't posted anything since last Wednesday...I promise I will catch up with everyone else's sites soon...This weekend was amazing! Not sure if you know the history of what I am about to share, but you can check it out here...

But to sum it up, a half sister contacted me in April and I found out that I have 5 half sisters!

Two of my sisters came up and I met them for the first time! I had already met one of my sisters she is the one next to me...


They are so friendly, caring, beautiful and have great senses of humor. It was such a pleasure to meet them! They arrived on Friday night and we stayed up way late just visiting and getting to know each other. On Saturday we went to lunch and met an aunt...They hadn't seen her in almost 15 years and I had never met her. She was lovely...she also filled us in on some history. We met her husband and son later that night.



It was very interesting to hear their voices and see their mannerisms...we also went to get manicures and pedicures...such a sisterly thing to do, right?? :)



It was great getting to know them and I can't wait to see them again...
There are still 2 more sisters that I have yet to meet...but hope that changes soon...

That's a lot of sisters! I don't know how I would feel if I had some long lost siblings sudden appear in my life, but if they were sisters, I'm sure it would make it a little easier (since I've always wanted a sister and got three brothers instead).

March 9, 2009 at 1:39 AM  

Oh wow! It must be amazing to find out you have siblings you never knew about. Love from South Africa.

March 9, 2009 at 1:50 AM  

Very cool! I met my two half-brothers for the first time when I was 19. :)

March 9, 2009 at 1:51 AM  

That's so awesome. I hope you've met the other two by now...

Happy SITS Day!

March 9, 2009 at 2:17 AM  

How exciting for you! Looks like you ladies had a blast, congrats on your SITS day! :)

March 9, 2009 at 3:10 AM  

How awesome to meet these ladies. What a cool thing to be able to have some new family.

March 9, 2009 at 4:28 AM  

Life has a funny way of dealing us new cards when we least expect it. Congrats on getting a chance to meet your "new" sisters.

March 9, 2009 at 6:06 AM  

That sounds wonderful. What a nice surprise. I know you continue to enjoy all you new found sisters.

March 9, 2009 at 6:18 AM  

That is super cool. It had to be funny to see similar mannerisms in people you hadn't met before!

March 9, 2009 at 6:44 AM  

Very cool! Family is so fun, don't you think? I hope you get to meet your other two sisters soon.

March 9, 2009 at 6:47 AM  

That's fantastic! Sisters have such a special bond and it's nice that you are all getting to know each other:0)

March 9, 2009 at 6:53 AM  

How cool is that? I would have loved 5 sisters!

March 9, 2009 at 7:01 AM  

That is so much fun! And you all are so beautiful!

March 9, 2009 at 7:31 AM  

Sisters are great aren't they!

March 9, 2009 at 7:46 AM  

There is nothing sweeter than sisters.

From another indiviuals who often says:

"Yes, that is my real name."

March 9, 2009 at 7:49 AM  

I just can't imagine finding out that I had siblings I didn't know about. You are a very interesting person.

March 9, 2009 at 8:02 AM  

Woah! I'm going to have to go back and read this story. I couldn't imagine life without my two sisters, so I feel like I should congratulate you! LOL!

BTW all of you guys are just beautiful!

March 9, 2009 at 8:10 AM  

That's wild you're finding out you have sisters you never knew about! I love big families though. Very cool!

March 9, 2009 at 8:10 AM  

wow what an amazing story! I can't imagine how I'd feel if I found out that I had 5 half sisters!!! The sister mani/pedis must have been super fun :)
Happy SITS day!

March 9, 2009 at 8:14 AM  

5 newly discovered sisters? That's awesome. Enjoy your newly found family. Visiting from SITS.

March 9, 2009 at 8:20 AM  

I met 2 half brothers about 5 years ago for the first time.

Have a great time getting to know your sisters.

Visiting from SITS.

March 9, 2009 at 8:25 AM  

That's amazing & awesome. I can appreciate that - my Dad got a letter one day from his mom who he didn't know. I was 23 and still remember sobbing in our kitchen as I read the letter. I met my Grandma not too long after that for the first time. Emotional stuff.

March 9, 2009 at 8:35 AM  

How great is that? I've always wanted a sister. I can't imagine what it must be like to suddenly have 5!

March 9, 2009 at 8:38 AM  

It'd be so neat to gain sisters like that! I'm so glad that they are welcoming.

March 9, 2009 at 8:39 AM  

Wow! How amazing to have sisters!! You all look like you are enjoying each other's company. :)

March 9, 2009 at 8:43 AM  

Wow! That is so awesome! I need some long-lost sisters

March 9, 2009 at 8:44 AM  

Happy SITS day! I will have to check out the history!

March 9, 2009 at 8:53 AM  

wow! what a great story!

March 9, 2009 at 9:01 AM  

This sounds like a happy reunion ... I need to check out the history!

March 9, 2009 at 9:04 AM  

Wow! What a fun day. I hope you have got to meet your other sisters by now.

Happy SITS day!

March 9, 2009 at 9:08 AM  

There was a show on one of the cable channels that connected lost brothers, sisters, and birth parents - even old friends I think. Can't think of the name of it now but I cried and cried every time I watched those reunions! I'm sure there is a reason that you all were brought together after all this time. Cherish them.

March 9, 2009 at 9:15 AM  

Happy SITS Day!

March 9, 2009 at 9:26 AM  

Wow, that must have been an amazing day - and how awesome to have sisters. I wish I had more than one! :)

March 9, 2009 at 9:27 AM  

That is a wealthy find - five sisters. Read the back story too. Great story.

March 9, 2009 at 9:29 AM  

Wow! 5 sisters - looks like you guys had an amazing day!

Happy SITS Day! :)

March 9, 2009 at 9:30 AM  

That is so neat! How wonderful for you all. Since this was my first visit to your blog, I wasnt sure which one was you in first picture. The lady, 3rd from the left or 2nd on the right, looks just like you.

Congrats to you. What joy to find them.

March 9, 2009 at 9:32 AM  

Wow, that's amazing!

And you all have the same smile. It's sweet!

March 9, 2009 at 9:33 AM  

Wow, how scary and amazing and really, really neat! I'm glad you got to meet your sisters...looks like a fun crew!

March 9, 2009 at 9:34 AM  

That is so neat to have family out there that you do not know about. Then you find them and hit it off and have a great time. YEAH!!!!!

March 9, 2009 at 9:39 AM  

How great you found all those sisters! Great story! You're all a bunch of hotties too!

March 9, 2009 at 9:42 AM  

Wow! Five half sisters...I'm going to have to go back and read the backstory on that. Glad you had a great time getting to know them and spending time with them.

March 9, 2009 at 10:50 AM  

What an amazing story! As an only child I think that would be pretty cool.

March 9, 2009 at 10:54 AM  

That's awesome!! Sisters are great!

March 9, 2009 at 11:10 AM  

Great story! I see the similarities too!

March 9, 2009 at 11:18 AM  

How fun. I only have one sister but I absolutely adore her. I can only imagine what a blast it would be to have 5! Instant family. Congrats!!!

March 9, 2009 at 11:56 AM  

How absolutely wonderful to be gifted with a bunch of new sisters!

Congrats on your Sauciness!

March 9, 2009 at 12:02 PM  

That is so sweet! I bet you have a lot to learn about each other. Enjoy.

March 9, 2009 at 12:06 PM  

Feather that is so neat. I have a ton of siblings myself, mostly halfs (halves) with just one full biological sister. I'm the eldest, and my parents always travelled in the same circles as each other, plus I lived with my mom until I was 14, then with my dad until I was 17... so I know them all. I know how lucky I fel to have so many people with whom I share a common background, and it's always neat when I get together with them to see how similar (and different) we are.

March 9, 2009 at 12:10 PM  

That's so great! :)

March 9, 2009 at 12:43 PM  

That's so neat that you were able to meet each other!

March 9, 2009 at 12:50 PM  

How fun that must have been for you to find out about a whole other family! I am so happy for you. Happy sits day!

March 9, 2009 at 1:24 PM  

It looks like you had a really nice time! :) That reminds me... I need a pedicure!

March 9, 2009 at 2:09 PM  

Wow, that is amazing. How wonderful that you enjoy spending time with your newly found family.

March 9, 2009 at 2:11 PM  

That's awesome!! What a great way to meet and get to know family you didn't even know you had!! You all look like such sweet sisters!

:)

Wow, that's a great story! It looks like you guys had a good time.

March 9, 2009 at 2:23 PM  

I always wished for sisters! Lucky you. :)

March 9, 2009 at 3:14 PM  

Sisters really are wonderful. I have two, and they come in really handy, especially since I have five brothers!

March 9, 2009 at 3:35 PM  

This is such a great idea - I have 2 sisters and would love to do this!

March 9, 2009 at 3:44 PM  

I have two half-sisters that I don't really see so this post really hit home for me. Thank you!

March 9, 2009 at 4:41 PM  

How exciting. Congrats on the reunion. I have some half siblings too that I don't have contact with, they are 16 to 25 years younger than me, so it might be a while before we reconnect.

March 9, 2009 at 5:00 PM  

Wow- how exciting! You all look so much alike, too! It must have been amazing to find out you had such a huge family (once you got over the shock, of course!)

March 9, 2009 at 5:08 PM  

Happy SITS day!
That's just wonderful that you were able to connect with all your half sisters like that. I only have a brother and always wondered what it would be like to have a siter.

March 9, 2009 at 5:17 PM  

What a wonderful story. This is a amazing and inspiring.

March 9, 2009 at 5:38 PM  

I can't even imagine some long lost sisters I didn't know about - looks like you guys had fun though. :)

March 9, 2009 at 6:20 PM  

Mani Pedi with your sisters! what could be any better? When I was little and fed up with my two brothers I used to daydream about long lost sister somewhere in the world! Yours are real!!

Hugs!

What a great reunion, the resemblance is quite strong too. What a happy event it must have been.

March 9, 2009 at 7:00 PM  

Wow, how great to meet your sisters! What an amazing experience that must have been.

Just realized you are right down the road from me. We are in Piedmont!!

March 9, 2009 at 7:13 PM  

How great that you were able to connect and spend time together.

March 9, 2009 at 7:25 PM  

How awesome to find your sisters and aunt! I have an awesome sister and we have been through a lot so - I hope you have lots of great times coming.

March 9, 2009 at 7:37 PM  

What a great reunion!!

March 9, 2009 at 8:07 PM  

I recently met an uncle who is only a couple years older then me! I met him just this past September. My grandmother gave him up fro adoption (I think because she already had 3 grown children at the time and didn't really have a relationship with his father).

March 9, 2009 at 8:56 PM  

Wow, that sounds like a fun weekend. I'm glad you all get along and what fun to get the mani/pedi! That's a perfect bonding experience!

March 9, 2009 at 9:48 PM  

That is so amazing! You and the sister sitting next to you have so many similar features. So pretty!

March 9, 2009 at 9:59 PM  

Wow! It must be great to find out you have more sisters.

March 10, 2009 at 8:39 AM  

Happy SITS Day!

How cool to meet sibs you didn't even know you had! I can't imagine.

March 10, 2009 at 8:57 AM  

What a cool story! Happy SITS day!

March 11, 2009 at 11:35 PM
