I am 24 years old and never knew that I had another brother out there. My mom had me when she was 19 and had my youngest brother when she was 25. Little did I know, she had another son in between that time, but she gave him up for adoption. She just revealed this to me. I have connected with him through MySpace and have shared pictures and emails. My mom has also connected with him through email although he has not emailed her in awhile. I only talk to him once a month or so and haven't talked to him since the birth of my son in February. The talks we have are very casual, but I would like to take things further and possibly meet in the future. I don't know how to bring up the subject for fear of scaring him away. I don't know how he feels about connecting with a family he has never met. I am very open to the fact that I have a brother out there, and very supportive of my mother. I just don't know what steps I should take next. I don't know if this is the right group to discuss this or not?? Any advice would be great. Just need to talk this one out and not with my mother. She feels she made a big mistake and is very depressed. Any advice?
