What an interesting story!

I imagine that I would have felt much the same as the Boy did; I would have wanted my privacy, but curiosity would have warmed me to the idea eventually, especially after considering how much it might mean to the Woman. But it would have taken a long while.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow. Wow. Chills up my spine. Amazing story. Thanks for sharing with all of us. Do the kids know about this? If so, how did they react? If not, will you tell them?


Wow. What a great story! Thanks for sharing.


And what was the boy's parents' reaction?


What a wonderful story!

That is beyond awesome. Thank you for sharing with all of us. :'-)

Oh wow, I'm all teary! (And what an incredible twist to the story that the Man and the Woman eventually got together. I don't think that happens very often in these situations).


This is an amazing story. I was riveted by it. I'm glad that everyone got to meet.


Great writing Karen, this was lovely to read.

What a beautiful story, and beautifully told. I'm curious about how your kids & his parents responded, too--will there be a part II?

Rachel K.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable!


The kids do know, but how much they really "get" is another story. It doesn't seem odd to them that the Man and the Woman are married now!

The Boy's parents think it's great. My MIL even thanked me for finally encouraging the Boy to do it.


A warm, big-hearted story. I thank the Girl for sharing this little piece of her life (and the Boy's life) with us!


Thanks for sharing this amazing story with us!


Oh, Karen. This is really something. Thank you for sharing it with us, and so beautifully.


PS And perhaps this story would not have unfolded as it did without the love and wisdom of the Girl. Bravo.


Golly, Karen. I think that's a marvelous -- in all senses -- tale. I wish everyone in it lots of happiness. And I wonder how the story may continue.


Beautiful, Karen.


Well, Shu. Finally! Must have been a trip. I can only imagine a tiny bit what it was like - from when I met my sisters. They seemed so familiar to me in a very strange, but good, way. I'd love to see the Man and Woman's photo. I can only imagine how wonderful it was for the Man and Woman.


That's a lovely story.. and a real mitzvah! Thank you for sharing it!


Karen, wow! That's all I can say right now! Wow!


Just a great, heartfelt and heartwarming story - thanks for sharing!


Karen: what an amazing - and movingly told - story. That was fantastic. So happy that Andy (and you) were able to experience this.


What a lovely story, and told perfectly. How very supportive and thoughtful the Girl has been. Nice to hear of a positive experience. Made me a little weepy.


Amazing, amazing, amazing!

What a beautiful account, Karen! You are an amazing facilitator and a fantastic writer. I believe everyone should know their biological heritage, even in cases of adoption. In the 1970s, I was proud to work with Orphan Voyage, one of the first organizations to facilitate birthparents meeting their children. Hope you and your extended family have a wonderful holiday season. Cordially, Ellen (on travel in Hong Kong, CHINA)


That is a fantastic story. Thanks for sharing!


How fabulous! In fact so fabulous that you made me de-lurk after all these years!


Aaaagh. Karen, what's happened to your recipes????? I need to make stuffing and yours is our favourite but it's not coming up. Help.
(I am now positively de-lurked!!)


I'm glad I came over to see what you've been writing. I usually rely on you post from facebook but realized I hadn't seen one lately.

What a great, touching story!


Chills.....still, five minutes after reading it.
I'm so glad he met them; I agree that I think he would have regretted it had he not.
