I recently found out that I may have 2 siblings out there, and my sister and I always wondered, due to over hearing some things back in the late 60's....My sister, who lived in Calif. was too afraid to ask the couple of elderly relatives that we have left, that would know..

We did attempt to find out for sure in 2004 using everything we could find on the internet, we spent nearly a year...and finally gave up.

My sister died in 2012, and this summer, while I was visiting Calif ( I live in N.D.) I asked my Aunt, purposely without preparing her for the question.....confirmed there were a "couple" of siblings when I took the opportunity to ask her in person. She then sort of backed out of the subject when she realized what she had done.....I come from a generation where things like this were hidden, at all costs. I'll bide a bit of time, but I will ask her more questions soon.

My point is, I would dearly love to be contacted by my siblings. I lost my sister 2 years ago, and my last brother this April....I say Go for it! You have debated for years, and your heart likely is leading you to do what your brain is hesitating....It has nothing to do with logic, it is heartfelt to want to know your siblings.....

Be aware though, if you FB someone that you are not friends with, the message goes into that area that a person has to click on to see it....It may never be seen......So, a friend request is critical to send a private message. Good luck to you!!

I agree with this as if you don't do it, you will be left wondering forever. But one should be prepared for rejection as well.
