Search for acknowledgement…

In 1968 I realised that my uncle was actually my father (“uncle” was a friendly family term). I cherished odd moments I had with him which were ‘blue moon’ moments.

In 2010 I happened to come across information relating to my father (he died in 1988) – that he had 6 children, two more than I had been told. I met them that same year, felt a connection with them – upset his two daughters, one of which was 9 months older than me. Sadly I have not seen them again to date.

I still search for my father’s acknowledgement of my presence.
