    Things Are Looking Better...

    Recently, my biological father contacted me. Took him a while to find me again, but he's made me see that I'm not alone, or strange with my little quirks. I feel better, I have siblings now that welcome me with open arms, and it certainly is fantastic to know that they all have...
