I recently found my birthmother through a PI service. They contacted her first (because I asked them to), and have forwarded me her letter. She does want to meet me, and has let me know I have 2 sisters (she let me know all this through the PI). I sent her my first letter directly yesterday, just going with my heart, but haven't gotten her response just yet, and it's just now starting to hit me. Now I'm nervous all over again... she lives in a different state, but close enough I could drive there within 8 hours. If everything continues to work out & she still wants to see me, as she's mentioned, I'm a little lost. Does anyone have suggestions... should I fly/drive in, stay at a hotel, and just meet her "somewhere?" Should I set up something really nice ahead of time (I was looking at B & B's in the area, and thinking about nice cozy common room type areas to meet her in), or should I let her take the reins since she knows the area? Does anybody have any "special" ideas? Am I thinking about all this too early in the game?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
