So everyone's family has their secrets! And in some way are screwed up. Over a year ago my world was kind of turned upside down...When you think you know your story and you think you know where you are from and then a lie is revealed it can shake you to the core.
Bottom line. I found out the man I thought was my mother's father, my grandfather was NOT her father nor my grandfather. Seriously shook me to the core. My cousin Annette was there when I found out...and it made me SO sad...and I worried that we were not even related.... We both did 23andMe ... sure enough we did not have the same grandfather!
The GREAT thing that came from that? I met Rob and his daughter Joanna TONIGHT!. We have been writing each other since 23andMe connected us as family...
Rob came up as my 2nd cousin. But we are both in the same boat of not knowing. He is adopted and I have no idea who my grandfather was. It is AMAZING that we found each other and I instantly felt like family! What a great night! One of the highlights of my life!
So this is me with my Cousin Rob and my Cousin Joanna! We had dinner at Chef Chu's and spent a few hours just talking and laughing! I am on such a high right now I can't think of sleep!
