HUGE DISCOVERY !!! THAT I DID NOT FIND

Post by twohawks » Sat Jul 20, 2019 4:03 am

Well on Tuesday night this week I got a text, and found something so unknown its mind boggling. The person had been looking for it for well over 20 years, and just knew it was out there.

I FOUND out that I have a daughter that 37 years old! from 1982 down at NAS Pensacola. I also found out I have 4 grandchildren. As well as the fact she is on her 18 year in the Air Force and Air Guard, and she was in Afghanistan in 2008/09 the same time her unknown cousin was also present serving in the Air Force.

So as it turns out both my children are active members of the Armed Services!

We are having her and her husband as well as her children out next week, with all 11 cousins she never knew she had.

PS I did not know I had a daughter or and other kids until Tuesday.


Think this qualifies as a Discovery!

I cant see how you didn't know? Was it a wild time? or just one of them fly by nights? Beautiful people. One night stand that somebody else keeps in memory then let you know after the fact??

So many memories missed BUT now so many wonderful times to share. Nothing better than a bunch of grand kids to warm a heart.

Well the I cant see how you did not know
should not be a question.
Its a fact, kind of like an E under the tailfeathers was caused by a clash. I was with her mother for less than 2 weeks, and horizonal referments as it turns out, I have learned can bring children into the world.
