    I Finally Found My Half Sister, Now What Do I Do?

    Hi, I guess I should start from the beginning. When I was 14 years old my family fell apart when my mother discovered that my dad had been cheating on her for over 25 years with different women. Well, one of his affairs resulted in the birth of my sister Aubrey. My parents got...

    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 father was married

    before he met my mother. He had 2 sons, who eventually took their new father's name. I haven't seen them since I was one, they are much older than me.

    I know I have... but I do not know how many.

    .. I found out when my dad's other woman sent my mom a message saying that my dad left her with their child and that she needs my dad back because she's got not enough money to raise the child... at that time, we didn't know my dad's whereabouts... until now, we still don't know...

    I finally met the last of my half brothers,

    unexpectedly and awkwardly for five minutes. I grew up with stories of all my half siblings, but as I grow older and meet them, the divide is larger than the Grand Canyon. I always wanted siblings, but now am realizing, I won't get that. I still have a half sister out there, but...

    He's my oldest brother

    and unfortunately he was affiliated with a gang and it will be dangerous for him to ever come back to New Jersey so I never met him before and probably never will.

    Much Younger

    His name is Alex and he's about 7 yrs old. I've seen pictures of him and heard a lot of stories but that's it. The step-monster would never let him near me. It's a shame, I've love to get to know him and I'm sure he'd blend wonderfully with all my nieces and nephews. Maybe one...

    I know I have at least two half sisters that I have never met on my birthfather's side.  I saw a picture of his family once, his wife and himself with their 2 little girls.  That was at least 8 years ago, so its definitely possible there could be more kids in the...

    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...

    women, that we know of, you would almost think he didn't know what caused that. I've met four of them, but the fifth eludes me.

    He will turn 10 this year.

    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.
