I know this is personal information but I want to share it and get people's thoughts and maybe suggestions.
So some of you know I am adopted. I'm 20 years old and just last fall got in contact with my bioligical mother who I have come to find out nothing has changed and she is sadly still a drunk. But now I know and I won't have to think what if I never found her. Her loss not mine. In fact I might behaving to get a no contact order on her as she didn't take to me kindly telling her I don't want to be apart of her life as it was so painful and damaging and all around not healthy many way. She is my birth mother nothing more. I have a mom the one who raised me and knows everything about and who has my back no matter what.
Okay so putting that aside, iv only known one thing about my birth father. His name, Richard.
When I talked to my birthmother I said I wanted to know who is and if she knew how I could find him. She wouldn't talk about him.
All I have ever wanted to know is who my dad is. Iv been raised by a single parent, don't get wrong my mom is amazing i love her to death but iv always felt like I'm missing a part of who I am.
So I got a call from a number I didn't know yesterday so I let it go to my voicemail. Checked it and it said "hi this is Rick call me back when can"
So I called back to say I think you have the wrong number.
He asked if I was "Sam" (I am) and I replied yes and there was a long pause and he then said he was my father...
He got my contact information from my birth mother
So I'm overwhelmed
And we want to meet each other
So here is the question I have.... How would you do it?
Like public place to meet or at his house?
Crazy. But something iv wanted all my life.
Oh and he loves horses and used to ride and own a couple walkers! Now I know where i got my horse bug from!
