Who's Your Mommy?

After many well spent postage stamps, a few correspondences, and years of putting it on the back burner, Ron only clicked a few times on Classmates.com to discover his birth mom's name on the list. After a lot of discussion, the question is not if he'll follow through on contacting her, but when and how.

Of course, neither of us wants to have any expectations of gaining family or having any type of relationship with her or any possible siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. But how can you not? There is a whole other side of the gene pool (and it's the deep end we haven't ventured into yet) that my children know nothing about. This shall prove to be interesting.

Quote of the evening:

Ron: "Of course I'm going to be the biggest baby ever in this whole thing." I think that's to be expected (and well deserved).

    Wow, that's exciting. I'd probably be a baby, too (said the woman who cries at TV commercials).

    (i must confess a part of me would love the drama...but i look just like my mother, so no mysteries here.)

    Amazing. The internet does really make it easy to find anything or anyone

    How scary that would be to make that first step.

    I hope you gain many wonderful new relatives.

    this sounds like a giant step into the past emotional unknown and the present emotional unknown. you both sound like you're going to keep it light if/as you can. best of luck. some journey...

    Liz- I cry at commercials, too. ;) It was emotional just talking about the prospect of this (aka: we both had salty discharge brimming).

    Bearette- I'm sure there's going to be plenty of drama going around.

    Suzy- Rest assured, the drama will be posted.

    Stu- Yes, and sometimes you find things or people (or they find you) that you wish you hadn't. :P

    Carolyn- That is what we're hoping for. Mainly focusing on the word "wonderful". Keeping fingers crossed.
    kj- Yes, I don't know if it's possible to keep something this big "light". Or to not get too emotionally involved. That has been the big question for him all along. Whether or not he's ready to risk being rejected and everything that will follow that. Because as much as you tell yourself that being accepted does not matter, it still does.
