  • wow.

    As far as I can tell this is the sort of occasion where you're expected not to know what to feel/you're feeling.

    I also can't help noticing once again how the internet shrinks the world.

      My wife had a similar experience a few years ago when her sister called her out of the blue. Like you, she had heard rumors of other children, but her my wife's dad had denied it. Her sister had found their dad few months before calling. Soon, we all met and found out she grew up a few houses down from the one I grew up in. The Internet isn't required for a small world.

      The shocker my wife got this past year is that there is at least one more sister out there that she hasn't found yet.
