I only met him in february. He is 60 today ,I am 53.He never knew about me I also met another brother at the same time.Such a shame 50 plus years have gone without knowing eachother.

I am going to his party in July and will meet more of my birth relatives.My adoptive sister is going with me ,as to them she is their sister /cousin too!!.
