So, I turned on the news this morning and was surprised to see Matt Lauer and Al Roker discussing National Siblings Day. Last year, it kind of came and went without much fanfare. I guess people are starting to get into it.
Far be it for me not to celebrate my own. I’d very much like to celebrate my brother and sisters. We have a unique story. I didn’t meet them until I was an adult in my 20s. I didn’t grow up with my father. I had no idea where he was or what he looked like, but remembered being told that all I had to do was look in the mirror. I did. It didn’t help.
When I became an adult, I searched and searched until one day, God (truly God) allowed all the pieces to connect and I was provided a phone number. On the other end was a connection that has been like titanium ever sense. I have met brother and sisters, nieces and nephews, in-laws, aunts and uncles. It’s always awesome to see the other side of you. It’s one of the reasons I wholeheartedly support Honeybee’s right to learn who she is and where her genetic roots lie. It’s awful not knowing and I would never keep that from her.
That being said, allow me to introduce the other side of me…
