I was adopted as an infant 43 years ago. I was adopted through Bethany Christian Services. I have found and been in close contact with my birth mother and her family. She told me my birth father's name and I contacted him. He seemed very happy at first and that was the last time I have heard from him. That was in 1994. He had never told his present wife and child about me. He had two sons from a previous marriage. I have been in contact with the oldest son and he has been very receptive of me. I know where the other two children are and have the ability to get in touch with them. Should I do it, or wait on my father to tell them? I know he won't ever do that though. Any advice you all have would be accepted. I am in a quandry as to what to do. Part of me says not to butt in where I may not be wanted, and the other part says, life is too short and you never know what they will say or feel. They are your blood family.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
