Talking I have a younger sister that I just found out about.:)

Well, I found out today, that I have a sister,and that my mom gave her up for adoption. Nobody knew this! Well she contacted my mother, and wants to be in our lives. This is so surreal, and weird!! LOL

It's so uncanny also because we look so much alike, we can pass for twins. My mom said that when she e-mailed her my pic, that she started to cry. I did the same thing. It was like looking in the mirror.

I am so emotional and happy, and yet also, a bit nervous.

I am going to give my mom a huge big hug tomorrow, when I see her as well. Well I just wanted to share this news with you all, and I will let you know how it all goes when I see her tomorrow.

Her name is Rebecca Lynn, I am like WOW!! Shocked amazed, flabbergasted!! lol my baby Sis.

Odd thing is I have always had this strong intuition out there that I had another sister, out there.

Wish me luck.

Thanks Sam Thanks for your encouraging words earlier on IM.

Also thanks to disposblehero and Barridude who, in an earlier thread wished me luck and good wishes too.

Thank you Brickhousesupporter!

She wants to have a bond, we are all 4 full-blooded, we have the same dad and mom. But my mother, well she had a tough time, so she did the right thing. The best love you can give a child is giving it up.

Awwwh, Dawn Marieeee. I'm so happy for you. I think that family is the most important thing in the world. There's nothing like the connection between family members. I'm glad that you've found one another. I hope all goes well, and you keep in close touch with each other. I can only imagine the joy and anxiousness that you must be feeling. Good luck! And Congratulations!!!!

Good luck to you Dawn!

Family bonds are unlike no other, and surely, it'll be great to have a baby sister you can fawn over...

I wish you and your family the best!

Good luck,Dawn. i know you were happy and stunned at the same time.

It reminds me because I was ove a friends house several years ago when a guy came over who was about the same age and had the same first name as his dad and said that he was his father's son. We were all kind of speechless.

Boy, two Dawns. That is a real good thing.
Now we will be waiting to see if she is built just like you as well.
