Nerves

Back in October, I wrote about finding out that I have three biological siblings that I never knew I had. The back story is in this post Peanut Butter and Jelly

 I was adopted as an infant, and my bio father later went on to marry and have 3 kids, all of whom are quite a bit younger than I am. 

 Well in 3 weeks I'm travelling to Virginia to meet them for the first time. My birthmother is flying down to meet me a few days in advance and we're going to spend some time just "mother and daughter".  I'm going to get to meet cousins on her side of the family that live in the area too.

 I'm so excited, and nervous at the same time. I've been spending months trying to get ready emotionally for this journey, but the closer I get, the more butterflies I have.

When is it appropriate to throw up?

Of course you are nervous, but I imagine they are too. I hope it all goes well for all of you and that you have a wonderful experience to write about when you get back.

My cousin got in touch with the child she had at sixteen and gave up for adoption. Oh, the rumors that my Mother told me about that baby! She was SO wrong. Well, they have been in touch for several years, and all is well between them. I predict the same for ALL of you, including parents and cousins.

Oh ATM-- I'm so happy for you, even though you're nervous. I know how much time and thought you've put into this and I wish you a wonderful and happy trip to Virginia.

Don't worry, my friend. You got this.

What an event! Nerves are quite understandable, just remember to brush your teeth if you throw up right before meeting them.
