After years of searching thru various sites using a lot of internet tools, I finally found three members of our family that have been 'missing in action' for about 13 years. Last night a lightbulb went off and I thought to myself, look on myspace. After all, everyone in the free world and probably beyond has a myspace account, so why not check it out. Yup, I found one right away, the second was linked to him, and the third was linked to the second. They have pictures and various other links to other people and videos and all sorts of information for catching up. It was so strange seeing these faces I haven't seen since they were all little kids. Now they're finished with college and doing really cool and interesting stuff and they look so much like they fit in with the family.
I'm very happy to have found them, but I didn't make any contact. I'm not sure it would be welcome, not through any misunderstanding or anything, but because I've faded away and I don't know exactly what they know and don't know about our situation. I'd rather get in contact with the adults, but that's a sticky wicket. A very sticky wicket. So I'm trying to decide what to do. I'll be pondering this for a while, trying to figure out the best strategy for renewing our relationships without putting forth any anxiety or stress. This should be interesting. Stumble It! JBlog Me
