Meeting My Half Brother

Last night I was fortunate to have met one of my half brothers.  Seth is here for the weekend from Alaska.  We have been texting and talking on the phone since I first made contact with my birth father last spring.  He is so down to earth and easy to talk to.  I hope to take a trip to Alaska soon to visit him there. 
I may get a chance to meet my other half brother next month as he will be in Tampa for a wedding.  Feeling very fortunate lately!  After waiting all my life I feel as though the pieces are finally coming together.

Meeting my Birth Mom

We had a great trip back to Nebraska.  It was so great to finally meet my birthmom.  She gave me a photo book with pictures of her growing up and all the family members – such a wonderful keepsake!

We met with her and her sister first for a few hours before heading over to her brother’s to meet the rest of the family.  Everyone was so warm and welcoming.   A funny side note – my birth mom’s godson married one of my friends from high school – small world!

The next day we meet everyone for lunch before heading to Lincoln for the football game.
