    I'm so happy for you and your daughter- she's absolutely adorable and sounds like a very lovely, bright, caring young lady (just like her mom!). It's good to hear of a genuinely wonderful event with such great people, all around.

    So your dad was pretty excited huh? Is she the his only grandchild ?
    Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.

    No, he has four others by birth and one through marriage. But, she was/is (still don't know how to call that) the first one. He can't have too many I guess!

    He was so funny though. I'm just thankful that no one seems to be holding any long term bitterness.

    I've brought it up before, but just to fill in for those who don't know -

    I had a child in high school when I was 17 and put her up for adoption. She is now 21.

    So, now to current events in that regard.

    Her father (adoptive, not birth) called my Dad and said that she want to meet me. My Dad called me and we talked, and now my daughter has my phone number.

    I'm nervous and excited and God knows what all else. I'd love to meet her and see how her life is, but I don't want to butt in or to try and take on a mother role. She already has a mother.

    That is great! Please meet her and let her know that you love her. That is really important.

    What a lovely photo. She's so pretty! And cool to see that she's got wavy hair. :)

    I remember you mentioning the adoption in a thread a while back. I'm so glad you finally got to meet her, and that it was fun and everyone had a good time.

    I think you missed a few posts. They already met.

    Congrats! I'm glad the meeting went as you had hoped!

    hee! That's totally what I was thinking!
    I was sitting here thinking how I wish I was a fly on the wall. and then I thought.. dammit, I wish it was a movie so I could watch it! :lol:

    :)
  • redcelticcurlsredcelticcurls Registered Users Posts: 17,502 Curl Neophyte
    We did have some laughs too, so maybe a movie woud work, lol.

    We were talking about wondering where each other was. I brought up a thought about how I wondered, "What if she needs a bone marrow transplant or a kidney?" She and her mother laughed at this, because she would bring up the exact same line to her mother. :)

    Luckily, neither of us needed bone marrow or a kidney...

    Maybe you could still write something down, just to capture a little bit of what you're feeling.

    If we are all so excited for you, I can't imagine how you must feel. :)
