I have been helped several times on this board. hcgCali and Travelinggal helped me find my husband's half brother last spring. I have a wonderful story to tell about that.

After we found Joel, we planned a trip out west to meet him in June. It was disappointing, because he was an alcoholic and suffered PTSS (post traumatic stress syndrome) from the Vietnam war. In August he went to the hosital and we haven't heard from him - until yesterday. Joel has been sober since August 31 and is in a rehab/mental health facility. He didn't even sound like the same person! Joel is getting his life together and is looking forward to traveling east to meet his other 5 brothers and sisters, and many neices and nephews that he never even knew he had until we found him.

Joel hit his rock bottom and I would like to think that he realized he had something to live for. He was an only child and his mother has dementia so he was totally alone with scattered ex-wives - until we entered his life. Regardless, it is a miracle and I am very thankful!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holdiay's to all!
