after doing some more checking it looks like i have 2 half sisters and a half brother. i am waiting for a reply from the eldest daughter, as i have emailed her as well as my dad. hopefully someone will reply.
Good for you for taking the leap. I can only imagine if somewhere along the line he was looking to contact you, that would have been quite an intimidating thought.
Not the same at all, but I spent most of my life not knowing my grandfather. I knew he cheated on my grandmother (who past away long before I was born) and married the mistress right after she died. That's all I really knew about him until this past year. His wife (the former mistress) past away and he decided to contact me to see if I would be interested and/or able to do the funeral service (as I'm a minister and he had no connections with any local churches). It was bizarre to be sure, but I decided to make the trek out to California to be there for him in ways he was never there for me or my mother. Overall, it was a great experience and wonderful to connect with a part of the family I knew next to nothing about. It was like coming home.
I hope this ends up being a similar experience for you, Mob. People do change, and if nothing else you will know you tried.
