On Christmas Eve when I was 16 years old my cousin let slip that I was adopted. I guess when her parents gave her the news that she was adopted as well, they told her I was too to soften the blow. Either way, I found out and it was an emotionally devastating night. I'm now 25 years old and still think about it from time to time.
Fast forward to the present, I'm now 25 and have 6 year old and a 6 month old sons. I guess after the birth of my youngest son I expressed some curiosity. Just for the fun of it my wife decided to search for this person online. We found him (quite easily in fact) and just saved his number and forgot about it. My wife calls me at work today and says "Brando, I called someone today."
Long story short she called him; or rather his wife. She asked his wife if he was around 45 and lived in the Maryland area in the 80's both answers to these questions were 'yes'. His wife is now "discussing" things with her husband and will call back at some point tonight.
After getting over the initial shock and anger (I think I should have been the one to make this decision), the same question keeps repeating in my mind over and over again. What do I say? And I have no idea how to begin to answer this question. Has anyone else here been through anything similar? It would be a great help if I could have some advice.
