It's funny who you can find on a place such as myspace, when you are not really looking for them.

After loosing touch with my brother shortly after our mom died in September of 1999, I gave up looking for him again. However, ater many proddings from my b/f, I decided to call my brother's place of work, hoping he was still employed, there or if not, maybe, just MAYBE, they might be able to help me locate him, since all of my communications via e-mail were being returned as not being known,

I was lucky in that dept. as there was someone working there still who knew my brother and was still in contact with him and would pass along a message that IW as looking to get in touch with him.

A few days later I recieved an e-mail from him, and I replied. However, I have not received any type of response too that e-mail filling him in on how I was doing, where I was living and what I was doing since we last spoke/saw each other in September of 199 when we buried our mother.

After hearing about my space and seeing my b/f's space, I decided to set up my own space last night. I was working on it this morning before work and decided to see who was listed in my school.

And low and behold, I see my brother's pic. I knew it was him, because I know my brother and he hasn't changed all that much since I saw him nearly 6 years ago. I was excited to see that he has a space here and the fact that he was last on it last night.

What really shocked me was his profile. I saw that his status was married and that he is a proud parent! I have a sister~in~law and a neice that I've never met and this is the way I find out about them.

All I'm trying to do is keep in touch with my younger brother and my only blood brother, as he is the last of our family, since our father doesn't seem to want to bother keeping in touch with me.

I left Long Island where we were raised, about 2 years or so after our mom died and moved to Upstate New York, in the Mohawk Valley Region of the Adirondack Mts. I've been here ever since.

I'm real excited that I have a sister~in~law and a niece. I would love to get to know my "new" niece and my "new" sister~in~law. Yet how can I when my brother doesn't seem to want to keep in touch.

I feel like an outcast, and that I don't belong. I have no "family" in the sense that everyone else does.

Sorry for the rant, but I just had to vent and this seems like a good place to do that, and everyone here always seems to be friendly and always come up with advice and thoughts.

This is a happy and sad event. Reach out to him and the family if you can, and hopefully he will respond in a positive way. The worse that can happen is that "nothing happens". But, I'll keep those prayers in a wish chest that "something good happens" for you. Family comes in a variety of ways ... I hope you get reconnected with yours.

warm wishes

Thanks Maggie. I appreciate your comment. I have written to him and my sister~in~law, but she has not replied back, altho my brother did, but only to obtain our father's e-mail address, after I wrote to my him,(forwarding him dad's e-mail to me), suggesting that he contact him as dad is not well, and we only live once. Here it is my b~day and I was hoping that my brother would call just to wish me a Happy Birthday, but nothing so far. I'm leaving it in his hands now. It's up to him to contact me, if he so wishes.

I am happy about your discover and sad about the gap that still exist. He must have some interest or he wouldn't have come to your space. Give him time.
