Sooo I met my grandmother for the very first time!
I have never met my dad. I did not know his side of the family at all until I was 19 years old. I found my sister on myspace (haha Oprah story, I know) and began speaking to the rest of the family after that. I am now about to be 22 years old, so I've only known about them for less than two years.
My dad's mom has colon cancer and is being treated in the same state that I live in. She called to say that she would like to stop in and meet my brother, niece, and I.
So she drove in and stayed the night with us! It was pretty exciting :) and very emotional!!!
