The Present
Since the first meetings, we've all kept in contact. I have been out to BC for a few more visits (last summer being the last visit). I'd probably go out more often if I could afford it! ;) My brother came out for a visit, and my bio. mom has come to Ottawa several more times. I see my bio. dad every so often, and I email and talk to my bio. mom on a regular basis. I've even got a cousin that I'm in regular contact with! Things seem to be settling in fine. :)

After the reunion, I had been in a 'honeymoon' phase (so the books tell me!). On my bio. mom's last visit, things were a bit different. I'm not sure if this will make sense, but I felt 'normal' instead of excited as I had been before. I'm not sure if this is just a normal change. My bio. mom did decide to go home early (for reasons other than me) and I was surprised how much that hurt me. I guess that's maybe why I feel the change in my feelings. Don't get me wrong though, this hasn't changed my happiness about finding my family...I think this is just a natural phase.

All in all, this has been a really good thing for me. I now have two families full of great people. I'm one of the lucky ones!' :)
