This is my big secret I had last week!!

I went to meet my SISTER!!!

This picture has 4 out of 5 of us "found" siblings so far. Top left is my brother Steven (now Andy, I was adopted with him), next to him is my big brother Percy (now Richard, who I found last sept 2006). Bottom left is me Patricia (now Joanne), next to me is my sister Julie (now Catherine, who I found last oct 2006).

My sister had no idea I was coming to meet her, it was a big secret!! She thought it would be weeks until we were able to meet. She was so surprised when I walked in the room and said "Hey Big Sister, I want a hug!!" We did lots of hugging, talking, and just had a wonderful time together for the weekend. I'm looking forward to many many more!

We had a wonderful time, it's her birthday today, so we had a surprise birthday party for her on saturday, complete with bbq dinner, birthday cake and gifts. She was so surprised, it was great!

I'll post more when I have more time.
