I know that for me, the burning desire to meet my biologicals was simple - the reason, both on the surface and below was no more complicated than that they held lots of pieces of me that I knew I wanted to own. Full stop. No psychoanalyzing necessary. I know there are people out there who did not grow up with their biologicals and don't care, don't want to meet them (I do envy them a bit if they aren't actually in denial and truly don't care), but that is not me and I think I know you well enough through our decades-long (!) friendship to say that is not you - and it's one of the many reasons why I love you so <3
