this is joseph c. wards ex wife nell. who is trying to find my daughters? i am sorry about joes health.but he has never been intrested in these two girls in all there life.
and now he decides he wants to see them.he has known how to get in touch with me.i have always told him where we were. and he always knew before i told him.

Well, now we all know.


I was sorry to read the repsonses from your half-sisters and their mother. Atleast now you know how they feel about the situation. I would hope that they would understand that you may not have "known" how things were between your father and them. It is natural to want to know our families...the good and the bad. Please consider it their loss for not getting to know who you are before the decided to write you off.

I was it a situation similar to your half-sisters and I never denied my half-siblings. Even though we did not have the same feelings for our birth father; we respected each others opinnions about the situation. So, it is possible to have a relationship...but they seem to have closed that door on that thought. JMO

I think they were a little harsh on the half sister maybe her wanting to find them had nothing at all to do with her father maybe she just wanted to know who her sisters were. I know my dad was a total ass to his first born daughter and never had nothing to do with her but I did find her with help from this site and she was very happy to hear from me. God Bless, Teresa.

you do not know the people involved so people need to mind there own
bussiness. yall have plasterd my number all over this thing because yall
have no consideration for anyones privacy. the main thing with yall is
joe ward the main thing with me is my daughters. you think just because he has medical problems everything is forgiven.well he is not the only one
that has medical problems so do i. so he wants to know them ok.
where has he been ? jeanna has diabetis thyroid desease blood pressure
and a couple other problems she has a husband and 2 sons 1 daughter.
and missy has2daughters 2sons and 3 grandsons. and she has hbpressure
she has a heart irregularity rhumitoid arth. lupis so now that you know our bussiness are you satisfied.you could have picked up the phone and called
and this could have been done over the phone. they probably would
have talked to her. you know her you tell her to call my no.
if they feel they need to know anything else call me.

Well, at least Melissa and Jeanna got stellar educations and passed on the family's understanding of the difference in there and their to their own children. Also noted is the education they got in compassion and human kindness, as well as how to pass anger on through the generations.

The OP is your half-sister searching for you, calling you "family," yet you express such undeserved vitriol upon this innocent young girl! Why cause her this pain? She had nothing to do with the situation and is your blood relative reaching out to you.

You view her father as a horrid person, yet it is your mother who raised you to behave so uncompassionately. Your mother who allowed you to believe your father didn't love you. Your mother who encouraged your feelings of hatred. Loving parents protect their children from such feelings over an absent parent. Yours nurtured it. No one is perfect, we all come to that place where we forgive our parents their imperfections, knowing they did the best with what they had. I hope you reach that place soon, for your own well-being. Harboring anger eats away at a person's mental and physical health, and prevents one from ever feeling true peace and happiness.

None of us here know the truth about your family history, nor do we care. What we do know is that this board is full of people searching for parents they never got to know, often too late. The time will come when you will want your questions answered, the other side of your parents' story, but then it may be too late for you, too, and you will go to your own graves never knowing what really happened to tear your family apart. The time may come when you are all alone, outliving your siblings, and you will wonder about the other two you had a chance to get to know, but refused. The time may come when you need to know your genetic medical history in order to help your child or grandchild, but you will no longer know how to connect with your father's side of the family. Trust me, all of us old farts will tell you, some day you will have regrets over this missed opportunity. No one, on their death bed, ever says, "I'm glad I didn't bother to get to know my parents better when I had the chance."
