I manged to track down my long lost brother. I haven't seen him for 17 years. We were sperated when I was 3 and I got sent to live with our grandma. He stayed with our mother and step-father. The last time we got to see each other was when our father took us on a camping trip for Easter in 2003, I was 7 and he was 5. When he was 10 our mother gave him up to the state, saying he was violent and a danger to himself and others. He was adopted after that and I thought I had lost him forever. When our mother told me about some of the things that he had supposedly done, I couldn't believe it. What she was described wasn't my bubba, he couldn't hurt a thing and was a total cry baby.
Back in December he got ahold of our little sister, but shortly after that he stopped talking to her. She is exactly like our mother who is a horrible human being. Apparently he couldn't remember how to spell my name because it's spelled so strange or he would have gotten ahold of me. After that our sister told me his adopted last name and I spent about a month looking for him. I found him around the beginning of February, but I was so chicken that I didn't contact him. On the 28th of February I read my Chinese horoscope for the year and it said that there would be a reunion with someone from my childhood. I knew immediately that the horoscope was referring to my brother, and it being our grandma's birthday I grew some balls and messaged him. He messaged me back on Monday, and within 12 hours he was here. He got to meet his nieces and nephew, and both of us were totally on cloud nine.
After 17 years, I finally have my bubba back and it turns out he was only living an hour and a half away the whole time. We made a promise to each other that we'll see each other as often as possible. I'm the happiest I've been since I gave birth to my children. The missing piece of our family is finally found.
