So it's my birthday today, which means I've been receiving all these very sweet messages on Facebook (and Tumblr, too, which--just--*keyboardsmashofdelight*).

I just received a Wall Post from my half-sister, Angie, my father's daughter from a relationship he had prior to meeting my mum. That in and of itself probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but it is to me. It really, truly is because I haven't seen her since I was 7; she was 13. She and my half-brother, Chris, stayed with us for two weeks, and it was excruciating because Angie and I did not get along at all. She liked my younger sister just fine, but I think there were some jealous, bitter feelings from her toward me due to our shared father and the discrepancy in his relationship to each of us (which I really can't blame her for). I genuinely believed at the time that she hated me, and I spent years after that feeling guilty because my dad chose to live with us. I couldn't even imagine how that must have made her (and Chris) feel, and we didn't speak for years.

We found her on Facebook a couple years ago (she has a son now!), but we still don't really talk much even now. However, she just wrote, "Happy Birthday, sis!" on my FB wall.

Endless tears. Honest to god, I'm so fucking touched I can't even type without my hands trembling from emotion. The whole situation was not ideal, and she certainly had reason to resent me, but it turns out she still considers me family. She considers me her sister.

And she's mine.

It goes deep, and I can't begin to express what a wonderful birthday gift this is to me.
