My names ralph, im 21 years old and when i was about 6 my mother died and shortly after i lost all contact with my family. i was told by my father(in reality he is..was just my guardion, my real father is unknown) that i was not wanted. I askd a few times as i grew up about them but got little in the way of information. we moved a few times and as time went on memory of them and my mother faded until very little was left. when i was about 12ish there was a fire in our storage bin and any pictures i had were incinerated. Time go's on and when i was 15 i met my fiance leslie, for the first time sense i could remember i had some one who really loved me,some one who would comfort me and give me all i was missing in life. time go's on and im still with leslie the years 2008 and i feel that things are going pretty well, im lazy have memory and money problums but others have it much worse, things are ok the pros out way the cons. So one day i get a emal from myspace saying i have mail, so i go and check it its a letter from some one claming to be my sister. I think its bull! my myspace page has my name and thats about it, but i check it out any way. she wants the name of our mother it starts with a r so i give my answer and wait. i decide to check out her page and im looking at her pics and she does appeare to have features like mine, dark hair for one so i continue to look and i see a name next to one of her pics AND I REMEMBER THE NAME. im in shock this person really does appear to be my sister. later that day i get a new message it has some answers and a phone number, it takes me maybe a half hour to get the nerve to call but i do. the phone rings a woman answers we start to talk. It turns out she really is my sister, my family as it turns out has been looking for me sense i went missing. we talk and she happens to be in the state, she drives over we talk for a good long time about many things and i learn much about myself and my history that i did not know and i get to see pics of my mother. I am going up to see more of them soon. Its funny one day i had no family and the next i do but i am happy. So what's my point? I guess it would be that lifes pretty funny at how it works.
