A few months ago, I got a message on Facebook asking me to call a woman regarding Jared. Did I know him? Am I in touch with him? Being the curious kid I am, I called. This someone turned out to be Rachael, a very kind person simply looking for a brother she'd never known. Can you believe that? Mister has 5 siblings that he'd never met (3 of which he still hasn't). The other siblings knew of Jared but never met him. They all share a father, though none of them have a relationship with him.
Jared had a very stable, blessed family life and was protected from knowing his bio-father. We don't even acknowledge this man. Jared's dad, Stacy, is legally and eternally all Mister needs as a father. We love him! It was funny talking to Rae and Thuy because I kept referring to Jared's dad and siblings. Yet, they are also his siblings...my brain still hasn't processed it.
I guess that's what makes this a sticky situation. We are okay with letting these new sisters into our world. But we don't know how to explain to the girls the relation. We don't want to confuse them.
