I’m pondering of getting in contact with my dad’s other relatives

Dear Amy: In 1956, my mother had a fling with an airman. 9 months, later on I arrived.

Seemingly, he was married, and inside of a pair of months of my beginning there ended up courtroom proceedings and he paid my mom $2,500 with the agreement that she would not ever contact him again. We didn’t.

Being a single mother was rough on my mother, but she supplied what we necessary.

Mother died in 1990, so I thought I would speak to my organic father. We corresponded twice that 12 months. Both of those moments he was cordial, but he by no means acknowledged his aspect of my existence. He did admit that he understood my mom.

His last terms to me had been, “I reside a nice quiet lifetime in this article.”

By way of research on the net, I have discovered that he was married in 1955 and had children. His wife died in 2010 and he died in 2012. We hardly ever fulfilled.
