I will have to too, some day. I've been anticipating it for many years. <br />
I would say keep it personal between you and her. The rest don't have to even know till you are ready and are sure of your stance with your mum. <br />
But you have met which is the major thing. You have a past with things to build on; they're already there. Work on that.
I imagine the first time you see her personally it would be hard to control yr emotions... no problem let it all out ,that is what you need.<br />
Be nice to her and just speak to her like you do with your friends...Make sure you buy some gifts for everyone in their family.<br />
Don't ask her "why has she given you up for adoption " that might really hurt coz she might be regretting her decision already.<br />
I wish you all the LUCK .
If you know his full name search him up in facebook .may be his profile will give you an idea what he is into.
Or the safe bet would be a watch.
That's a curious experience, just have it and after that, write about it. I'd love to read it.
Don't expect too much,she is just a Person,like you.
