"Beautiful. I reached out to my White father on Father’s Day 1999. We spoke and I offered to stay in touch. He said yes but didn’t. I found his two daughters years later. I reached out and they never responded. My family told me that father’s family was ashamed of me being Native."Man says he prophesied about marrying his wife when he was 3
"The fact that she took initiative and reached out to her Father wanting to build a relationship, instead of blaming him for missing out on 25 years of her life speaks VOLUMES!! She deserves this on so many levels!!"
"Awwww. My partner got in touch with his birth father this year (we are twice your age, so this was a true gift) and it's been a really positive part to what has been an otherwise trying year. Every happiness to you."
"I understand that bringing a family back together is a good thing.. but i will never fully grasp wanting to seek out your biological parent(s) after them not wanting to be involved in your life as a child."
