    My parents split up before I was born.

    It was not good break up and because of this my father has never been in my life. A few years ago I discovered I have two half siblings. I've been torn over whether to reach out to them. Family is very important to me and I would love to get to know them.

    My Half Brothers Know About Me, But Won't Talk To Me

    The fact that I don't know him is not the result of blatant abandonment. My mom originally lied to him about my parentage, but came clean to me 15 years ago. I searched for him for 10 years, yielding no results. Finally, my mom told me that she had friended my father on...

    I am still waiting for my parent to tell me about him. I've known for 10 years, and I still don't understand how my parent thinks that they've kept him a secret. I'm not even sure if I would ever want to meet him. It seems a bit pointless to me.
