Tomorrow morning I am hopping on a plane to Melbourne to meet up with my birth father. This will be only the second time we have met since I tracked him down back in May. I am really looking forward to spending some time with him. He has a dry sense of humour and wit that is quite entertaining and is great at telling stories (most of which I am sure are un-true).
My birth mother is also flying down from Sydney. She is keen to meet up with him too, and last saw him back in the 1960’s when she told him she was pregnant. WOW!! I have an odd feeling about the 3 of us being together (not necessarily a bad thing) – just something that I never thought would happen in my lifetime and I can’t quite get my head around it. The jigsaw puzzle will well and truly be complete. There will be no more missing pieces. The fact I can squeeze in a little bit of shopping is a bonus.
Wish me luck.
