Life has a propensity to work itself out and bring closure. For years, I have known that I had a biological brother, one whom I had not seen since the mid 50’s. Although I posted on many adoption forums, nothing ever materialized. Earlier this morning, thoughts migrated in this direction once again and I had plans to re-post on several sites and perhaps hire a professional to dig through the layers of bureaucracy that often shrouded adoptions once children became “The Ward of the State”.
It is uncanny, in a queer sort of way, how the ebbs and flows of Life intertwine in our lives and the lives of others giving proof that we are all interconnected and when Providence decides that it is time, events happen. About noon, I received a call on a possible match. Perhaps a 1 out of 10,489,748,777 chance. Go figure the odds - pure speculation on my behalf. As the caller went through scenarios and facts, most of what the interested party provided matched what I knew. We decided it was a match.
For years, I had built up a protective wall that separated this me and life from a past me and life. The flood of emotions that came through at that moment shattered what I thought was an impregnable wall. Like a tempest, the memories that ushered in through those now burst open doors was overwhelming especially when I was sent some of the early photos when David and I were sitting in a crib together. Like some folks who are dyslexic, I see and remember in images and now all those black and white images are starting to get colored in.
I plan to make a trip to see him real soon as we are both getting older and Life is something not to be taken for granted anymore.
And that my friends, is my 2￠’s worth for this evening.
