That is so interesting FMM. I am happy that he gets on well with his half-sister.

For myself, I am overjoyed that I have a half-brother who always wanted a sister, and although I wanted to be a boy in my young days, only because they seemed to get out of doing household chores, I have always  been happy that I am a girl, even though in my young days we did not have equal pay for equal work.

On both sides of my family I am the only one ever given up due to the way things were in those days.  I have no resentment for either side of my family; I was lucky to have a foster family who treated me as a beloved daughter, even though they always thought that boys should earn more than girls as girls were supposed to be supported by their husbands. That is why there are so many more older women who are rather poor as they never had the further education nor the money they would have earned. The fact that I was mainly brought up in residential from six until fifteen, was beyond their control in those times, but I returned to them when I left school and we maintained our family ties for the rest of their lives, including my two brothers; they are all gone now.

A little update seeing as it is Christmas.  David and I are as close as any brother/sister relationship could be.  Closer than my foster brothers who were older and left home before I left school to live with that family until I married myself.  They were my big brothers but even after we grew up there were few letters but we still loved each other.

This relationship with my brother is a different relationship I had with my dear husband. It is capturing the relationship we might have had if we were brought up together. We exchange emails  at least daily, it is as though we are living next door to each other. All the trivial things that normally people do not bother to write about. Like clearing the snow from the driveway, the mowing of the lawn before winter, taking his wife Annie to the hospital, my Christmas this year as it unfolds, good morning greetings and good nights, what he cooked for dinner last night, (duck breasts), taking his daughter to collect her car after a punctured tire, the sandwiches I am going to make for a morning get together with my friends on Christmas Day morning, where will be be this time next year, how is my downsizing going, a funny Newfoundand   love poem put out by our Senior's group. I think I will put that in the Banter thread.  How I drank two glasses of wine yesterday when I visited my friend for afternoon tea and then slept the rest of the day away. (I was just a little tired).

As you can see, I am very happy with the way things are going. Cool

So happy for you!

My daughter had a test from 23andMe. I have had a kit from AncestyDNA for a year so it's time I get mine done. I will also have the 23and Me test so she and I can compare apples to apples.

My Christmas this year with my new brother was as different as any brother and sister could share. We each wished that we could be together but was not possible, yet in many ways we shared each day together by letting each other know  what our plans were for starters, then sharing what we were doing at the same time
.
For a start we were eight hours difference in time, me being the one behind chasing him round the world. Some times when we could not communicate, as at times neither of us were at our own homes for long periods as both of us could only use our computers seeing as we are dinosaurs in the tech world, but we had enough to really enjoy our separate Christmases. We had completely different kinds of Christmas, he being with has close family, and me as a widow with no family but a fare number of friends.


Next year, all being well of of course, I will be with him and his/our family and taking part in a very traditional family gathering, very much like I had a s a young foster-daughter when I was aged 0 to 6, a gap of five years, then from ten onward until I left home at nineteen.
 

In spite of wishing to be together, I did remind him that I have never met anyone yet, not even him, that for me it would be a little awkward and that for them it could put a damper on things when, as a small and close family, an unknown comes into their lives at a time when family are closest. By this time next year I feel that all will be well with us.  Already it seems promising and there is lots to look forward to.
This year for the first time in a long time, I am looking forward to what the year will bring. So many decisions to make, but not in haste.

I have read many stories on the Internet and so many have not turned out well and have split families, and spoiled relationships but from what I have read, our situation  is bringing only joy, I think because that my brother and I have so much in common and that I am the sister he has always wanted and the fact that our father  and his elder brother both died at the age of fifty and that it is a small family.

KJ, it will be great when you meet your brother in person.

I am hoping to meet up with my half sister and three half brothers in the UK in 2019.  I did not know they existed until I found them via Facebook/Messenger in February 2018.  We keep in contact on almost a daily basis.

We  certainly have some things in common, TD. We are the lucky ones where this DNA business has turned out well. it would be finny if we went to the UK at the same time and sat next to each other on the airplane and talked SFG.  Very Happy 

This morning I wrote a long letter to the eldest daughter of my half-sister on my mother's side, and she is so happy that we will be meeting again next year. She remembered that 25 years ago, I was writing Sunday letters to her grandmother, my mother, and they were all waiting for m faxed letters to come through at six pm their time. I have kept all my faxed letters in binders and as I clear my house, they will be kept and re-read.  Like a history of what we did when arriving in Canada from 1979.
