The Mom I never knew.

I just got off the phone with a man I've never met.

 

He is my brother.

 

There's a lot to say about this, and I'm not sure when to say it or how much. But after 25 years, I am finally close to learning the answers to many, many questions. And answers to questions I never even thought of. For example, do I have Native American ancestors? Why, yes. Yes I do.

 

This is my biological mother, a picture that is probably as old as I am. We've never met, her health is extremely poor, and she is disadvantaged.

 

I have her phone number.
