A Start

Today, I found Mea’s birth mother’s address.

It is one of those things, where I just sort of fell on it.  So my brain has been all over the place today.  Just can’t quite get all my thoughts in one place.

Probably not the best day to start the letter, but I did.

It’s one of those things where I will be revising and revising until I feel that it is right.

I opened a PO Box, so I would have a non-home return address to put on the letter, I am also going to leave my last name off of the letter.  Our last name is too unique to put on there.  I hope that she actually writes me back.  I feel that after this much time, and because of the circumstances that doing some old-fashioned snail mail is the best way to go for now.  I am not going into this with a negative attitude, just a protective one.

I am going to go home and find some photos of Mea over the last five years to share with her.  I want her Mom to have a view of how she has grown into the little girl she is now. 

I am a bag of nerves.  I hope that I am doing the right thing.  I feel that I am, but I worry with her past that it has the potential to blow up.  I don’t want to do that either.

Any and all suggestions are welcome.  I have also sent the start of the letter to a few of you to read and give me suggestions.  Please be brutally honest.  I want to get this right.

    ((Hugs)). That’s all I have for you on this particular path. Just be careful and cautious. I know we all hope for happy endings, but sometimes they don’t happen in reality… other than Mea already has you and the love of your family. Perhaps that’s already happy ending enough.
