June 2018- I am contacted by a woman I have never met…. I am 58 years old and she is 53 and she is my half sister by our father (this is a completely different story!).  I was raised an only child and she was adopted with an adopted older brother.  We both did Ancestry DNA kits as well as 23andME.  With the help of one of her friends- we put all the pieces together and came up with who our father was and how we are related.  Turns out that we have another half sister who is much younger than we are as well as 2 adopted half sisters and an adopted half brother.

Fast forward to FOREVER LIVE 2019 in Las Vegas and she and I are set to meet in person for the first time….

She arrived during the 1st General session and I went out the back and up to the casino where we lay eyes on each other for the very first time ever.  She brought her daughter and she caught our meeting on video.  Over the next few days we spent time together just learning about each other and talking about how things just fell into place.

I am so grateful to have her in my life… even though she lives across the country, we keep in touch and plan to visit each other as frequently as possible.
