In early 2016, I found my biological family. On my Mother’s side (Linda Marchand, deceased 2010), I got to meet my Mother’s siblings: Aunt Martha, Uncle Vic and Aunt Jeanne. Linda has two children, Kelly and Doug. Kelly and I connected right away but Doug and his wife, Amy are not on any social media. Doug learned about me from his Dad, Bob Bresnock. Doug and I texted for the first time early this year. We later got on a phone call with Doug, Amy, me and Steve all talking and getting to know each other. Turns out we have alot in common. Doug and Amy are both avid golfers. They live in Home, PA near his sister Kelly and Father, Bob. Doug and Amy have two children, Alyson and Griffin.
We made a plan for them to swing by Virginia on their way to the beach in late summer. As the day approached I was really nervous but excited to finally meet my half brother on my Mother’s side! Doug and Amy were so warm and funny. We immediately started chatting and laughing at the same silly jokes. Alyson, my Niece is an amazing young woman who joined right in with our goofy dialog. Griffin was quiet but most entertained by Maurice. Both were inside and outside most of the visit checking out the yard and critters. It was a very short visit but I’m so happy to have had the chance to meet my family. We are in contact and always a stop on the way for anyone passing though Virginia!
