It's a headtrip, for sure. We spoke on the phone for over an hour this evening. We have a lot in common and he seems like he's interested in getting to know one another. We discussed the possibility of another sibling floating out there, but one step at a time. "Dad" knows I've made contact. Brother is going to give him my number and let him know I'm open to talking.

It's all so surreal. I feel like the last twenty years took fifty years and the last few weeks went by in the blink of an eye.

I'm a big sister.
Congratulations. A little brother. Seems like he could be a good friend, as well as a brother. The stories our parents keep from us....

I've since spoken with bio-dad and aunt. I think we're all trying to sort out what this means now that the flutter of excitement and wtf's has worn off. I definitely am interested in seeing family photos which bio-dad has offered to share. He was able to clear up some oddities in the records I found. Baby bro turns out to be somewhat of a superstar in his own right. Meaning he's a bit famous and travels a lot so I'm not going to push in like a fan-girl. We've talked about meeting and I would love that, but it will happen when it's time. He's very young and my hope is that this revelation only adds something positive to his life. He and bio-dad have been mending some fences and they both have indicated that maybe I popped up at the exact moment I was supposed to. I hope so.

As for the third sibling that may exist, based on bio-dads recount it's entirely possible. Even though the person hasn't logged on in years, I think I will send them a rather generic message through the site indicating that we are a close DNA match and if they ever want to compare trees, I'd be happy to share what I have. That seems like the most gentle way to do it.
