Letter to my biological father

Any ideas for what to say would be appreciated.

I have never met my biological father. YES he does know I exist. I was adopted so he was never in my life because that's what the courts decided. The courts decided that because of all the B.S. with my biological mother that I could not have any contact with my biological mother, biological father or my biological mother's boyfriend at the time until I was at least 18. Well when I was 19 I met my biological mother. I didn't meet my biological father because at the time no one knew where he lived. No one had a phone number or address for him. Well the other day I got his address from someone I know and I want to send him a letter but I don't know what to say.

Any ideas?

  • That must be so exciting but also nerve-wracking for you! I think for a first contact, it would be good to be brief. Let him know who you are, that you'd like to be in touch with him if he's also willing, and give him a couple of options for ways to contact you (e.g. email and phone number). Then he can contact you when he's ready, and you can get into more detail gradually. I imagine you both might feel a little awkward in the beginning, so keeping it simple and letting the discussions build gradually might help. Good luck, I hope it goes well for you!
