Great news Stormy. (sorry about the Irish part)
If you care to share any more info as time progresses, I for one would enjoy reading about it.
Sparky I have an update, but also a question.....
Can anyone recommend a company for sibling to sibling DNA testing? I have seen a few sites and read reviews. Not so promising.
I had mentioned earlier on this thread that I had a message sent to me asking if I knew of a person and that person was my mother. They had her name as a link to me. I was the person they were looking for.
Turns out there is a very good chance that I have a brother. We connected, talked on the phone and a few months later he invited me to his wedding in Ireland.
My best friend and myself came back home from Ireland last night. It was a great wedding. I met some wonderful people who I really hope are my family.
For those interested here is the crazy story that ends with me going to a wedding in Ireland.
I was born in the UK 1961. My mother told me that she married a man called Bob. She divorced him and years later lived with a man called Roy.
She got pregnant with me, told him and he then kicked her out telling her to 'get his half adopted.' Mum had me and gave me her ex-husband Bob's surname. The reason she gave was that as my real father (Roy) wanted nothing to do with me she was not going to give me his name.
Years later I told her that I wanted to find my dad and she told me that he quite possibly could have a family and may never have mentioned me to them and that I could destroy a marriage.
She knew that would stop me.
One time my stepfather told me that my mum had not been completely honest about my past, but would not tell me what he was referring to.
My mother passes away and a few years later so does my step dad. I then put a post up on a search site in the UK giving my birth info looking for Bob or Roy.
Many years later someone reads my post and responds to it, but I had stopped checking it.
The man who could be my brother, Robert, was born in 1963.
When his father (my mother's ex-husband Bob) died, Robert's mother told him that he had two siblings by two different women.
She told him that Bob had married my mother, then left her.
He was then with another woman, they had daughter named Sandra. He left her.
My mum took him back, had me. He left her.
Met Robert's mum, had Robert and stayed.
After the information was given to Robert at his father's funeral the search for me began. My post that I had written so many years ago was found, and they responded. I never got to see that, but eventually they found me and after a while a wedding invitation was sent.
At the wedding many people told me me that I had some features of both Bob and Robert. They saw it right away.
I also found out there are possibly two more half siblings. A sister in Ghana called Mary and a brother in England called Micheal. In total five of us.
My mother lied to one of us. She either lied to me about who my father was, or she lied to Bob telling him that I was his daughter when I wasn't.
In my heart I believe that I am part of this family and that I am the person who she lied to. A DNA test will put the questions to rest.
