Looking for the Sister I never met. (Spoiler Alert: This is the beginning of my search. No happy ending post yet!) My dad died about 19 1/2 years ago in 1998. Only several years prior to that he dropped a bombshell on me. I have a half-sister I never met. Wait… What??? “What are you talking about dad? I have a half-sister?” He goes on to explain he had a relationship with a woman in the Midwest after his and my mom’s divorce. The woman got pregnant. Keep in mind, at that time I was 24 years old. He and my mom divorced when I was six. He had 18 years to tell me this.
So, of course, I asked all the questions I could. Where was she? What is she up to? Does she know about me? And WHY THE HECK DIDN’T YOU TELL ME SOONER???? How can you tell me NOW, that I have a sister I never met?? Obviously, I was a bit upset. I love my family. And as it was, he never talked about his family. So I thought I was the end of the line on his side of my family.
