Hello, Kris~

Thanks so much for the info. Much appreciated! *smiles*

I found my father in January 2002. Searched him in google with just his first and last name... Saw his picture online and found out where he works... Then found out his first and middle name initial and last name in www.smartpages.com. I wrote him a letter and no response. My mother warned me he actually told her when i was 3 yrs old that he wanted nothing to do with us, including just friendship with my Mom. So, sadly, it was a successful search with a heart-ripping outcome.

I tried calling him but i couldn't get past his son (i would presume). I only called once and decided to just leave it as that.

I've only been hearing my mother's viewpoint eversince about him. I just wanted to say "hello" and how i wished i could meet him as a grown person. I even indicated i wanted nothing from him financially; nothing whatsoever. And that i didn't mean "trouble".And that i would respect it if he would decide to tell me to leave him alone. But i received no response. Silence hurts more than angry words.

I am VERY much indeed on your and your husband's search for his family. Sadly, that is just mere fantasy to me...

Thank you so much for your warmth and kindness.
