Quick Update: The Email

For those who have been following the story of my attempt to make contact with my biological father, I have an update. He emailed! W00t!

The email was concise, light, and humorous, and included a current photo and a promise of a future phone call. I have experienced a range of emotions since receiving it on Thursday. The primary emotion is a mixture of happiness and relief, but there's also some anxiety about the phone call. (Will he really call? When will he call?) Also, I still have a lot of curiosity. His message revealed some things about his personality (and gave me a sense of "meeting" him for the first time) but was light on biographical detail.

I hope he really will call. I'm nervous but looking forward to the opportunity to learn more.
