Oh Jenn, that is wonderful news! I am so happy for you! Have fun and and be safe on your trip!

Wow!! What an amazing story! I'm so happy for you. My mother has been searching for her biological father for a very long time (and she is now 65) so I know the huge void that you talked about. Everyone who knew her dad said my husband (her son) and my boys (her grandsons) look alot like him. I am so excited about your trip and will be praying for you! :)



Jenn, your story brings is so beautiful and touching! I am so happy for you for finding your father and new family! I noticed your half sister looks a lot like you, and that's when I just started crying with tears of happiness for you. I pray your trip is everything and more and you have an extra special time with your dad.

Jenn, what an incredible story and so excited for your reunion!! I can relate with having a void, I grew up without my birth mother. We have connected off and on over the years, but until recently have not lived close enough to visit as often. I now only live 5 hrs away from her. I and my family are getting to know her better and it has felt like that void is disappearing. So very happy for you and your new found family...what a blessing!!! Enjoy and safe travels! Oh...my last child of 5 is starting Kindergarten this year so I am sure there will be many tears on that day...his first and my last. :)

Hugs to you,

Amy P

I've been a lurker on your blog and fan of your creations, but I had to let you know how I think this is an amazing story! I got goosebumps reading it :) Congrats and enjoy your trip of a lifetime!



I am so happy for you!! I know EXACTLY what you are feeling. About 5 years ago I was blessed enough to find my birth mother. She and I have developed a wonderful and close relationship (amazingly after living all over the U.S, she lives only 1 1/2 hours from me), and it has indeed filled an empty place in my soul. Have a wonderful trip getting to know your extended family.

Hugs and happy tears for you,

Julie Marie

Oooh Jenn... I am so happy and excited for you! I have goosebumps reading your post... God definitely has a plan for all of us... and I am so happy He is re~uniting you with your daddy, and that you will meet your family... wishing you all a most wonderful, incredible time and I can't wait to hear all about it when you return from Hawaii... love to you... xoxo Julie Marie
