Wow, it's been a REALLY long time since I've posted on here. A lot has happened.
The short version is that after taking the 23andMe DNA test, I found a first cousin who was able to help me piece together than her uncle is my bio-father. As soon as she said his name, I recognized him from all of the hours of research I'd done into men who were at UTSW Dallas in 1976.
He and I have developed a virtual relationship over the last year. We've never met, never talked on the phone, but we message each other regularly. We are so very different in the areas of religion and politics but we genuinely like each other and I am so thankful to God that He allowed me to find him.
