Hi all. Got a message that my subscription is up soon so I thought I should post this while I still can.

Back in December I joined the site to get some help looking for my Father whom I had never really met, he left when I was just a baby.

Thanks to the help I got here, not only did I find him after over 20 years, but I'm pleased to report that I have met with him several times now and that we get along well.

It has been such a huge step and I'm very happy to have taken it. I'm staying in touch with both him and with the sisters that I never knew I had.

So thank you. Seriously. Couldn't have done it without the help I got here and I'm so glad I did.
