That is a Wonderful Story and what fun to not only find your father but to also to find out you have siblings, I am very supportive of you going just ASAP. You are so right life is short and precious , after all this searching and waiting and heartbreak, you must fly Miss Jennifer to your new found family. I just know all of you have been blessed!

Hi Jenn, I have been a reader of your blog for a long time now, but too shy to comment i suppose....this post however had me in tears of happiness for you. I wish you all the very best on your trip to meet your family. How amazing and truly wonderful for you.



what a beautiful happy ending, or should I say a beautiful happy beginning! Take care Jenn, Rachaelxo


Oh Jenn, I have tears in my eyes, how wonderful! Indeed Dad was one handsome man, his daughters resemble you!! I always say miracles do happen. I wish you so much love and joy when you meet. God's blessings to you dear one, have a safe flight and wonderful reunion, long over due but surely will be wonderful.I'm so proud you never gave up and shared with us, much love to you, Lori


Oh what a joy! Your children look a lot like him! Especially your little girl. You look a lot like your beautiful mother, but as you say, the eyes is from him. I don't think it's too soon to go and visit, I mean, you've been waiting for this moment for many many years! When I read your post I got gose pimples! I'm so happy for you.

Jenn it looks like I can get my comment to work now!
I am so so so happy for you finding your father and your sisters! this is a wonderful story. I look forward to hearing about your reunion. You have a wonderful family and supportive husband and now it is all coming together even more for you! You deserve the best!!!
And yes, I do think you girls have similar eyes!

oh gosh and how sweet is Grant there on his first day! did you bawl like a baby? i blubbered like crazy on Leroy's first day (but not in front of him of course)!

looking forward to hearing about your trip to Hawaii!

Karla Nathan

I'm glad you are going! How wonderful to meet all your siblings. And aren't you glad that you found them living in such a paradise???

Lori Oles

What a wonderful post and I feel like I know you that much better. I can't wait to hear all about it when you come back. I am adopted and I always wonder about how my birth parents are...if they are creative or have some of the same likes and dislikes as me. For me, I have never really thought of finding them, I just thought I would meet them in heaven one day. Enjoy your time together and take care.
P.S. Love the backpack shot!

Oh sweet friend! What joyful and happy news! I am so touched by your post and can feel your joy and happiness. How exciting to find out you have a whole new set of siblings and nieces/nephews! I know you will have a fabulous trip. I wish you all the very best. I have not talked about this but my husband Jeff has a 13 year old daugther that lives in Iowa and has not been part of our lives. She found us shortly after Chelsea's birth and she is actually here with us in Connecticut as we speak! We are rounding out two joyful weeks with her. It is amazing and so wonderful to have her in our lives and to know that Chelsea will know her big sister.
Big, big hugs to you!
