The toughest part of this so far
As I sit here and write this I am having trouble with something. Keep in mind that I truly believe I was given the most incredible opportunity of my life. I was adopted by the most loving and caring family in the world. I could not have been more blessed to have Charlie and Sue be my parents. They never kept it hidden from me that I was adopted. We spoke of it frequently.
The part that I struggle with is that I somehow feel like I am giving my Dad a slap in the face. If I were to say something to him, he would without a doubt tell me that it was fine that I had begun my search. He would tell me that if it was that important to me I should follow my heart. If it bothered him, he would never let on that it did. He would say it wasn’t about him.
In the past 5 years I have gotten to know my father better than I ever have. My favorite thing that I have come to know about him is…He is a good man. I am still lucky to be able to learn from him daily. He may not be biologically my father, but he has given me life in so many ways. Thanks Dad, I love you.
