    I just got off the phone with a half-brother I never knew I had!!!!!!:eek1: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Kim and I were doing some Unangst family geneology tonight, and I was able to confirm some suspicions that my father, who died when I was very young, had been married once before he was married my mom. I got up the guts to call his previous wife, and found out that she and my father had two boys, who would be my half brothers. Apparently, they knew I existed but didn't have any clue on how to track me down, but had always wondered what became of me.

    To make a long story short, I ended up getting their phone numbers and actually got ahold of one of them, not quite knowing what to expect. If you can believe it, one of them answered, and after my awkward introduction, told me "I've been waiting for your call for a long time!!!!"

    Anyhow, I'm a little revved up, and still in a state of shock, but I just had to tell all of my other "brothers" about my amazing news.......:woot:

    That is really awesome Paul! Do you have any full-blooded siblings? If not, this must be a very surreal feeling. I am an only child and would not know how to handle myself if a half-brother or sister suddenly surfaced.

    Congrats to you, this must be really cool.;)

    No Jon, I don't. That's what makes this so awesome. Up until this evening, I thought I was the last of my line, and then POOF, I found out that I have brothers and nephews and nieces and sisters/brothers in law I never knew about. My family circle basically tripled in one evening.

    And to hear that they had always wondered what happened to me and were excited to hear from me is the icing on the cake. They could have just as easily said "Yeah, I knew about you. What do you want??". Instead, I was welcomed with open arms and hearts. Abso-friggin-lutely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!:waytogo:

    Phew, I hope I can sleep tonight.
