Sebastian....

What an emotional weekend....it was tremendous, beautiful and tiring!




Many years ago Jon (my hubby) was married before and they had a son....Sebastian. Things didn't work out and they divorced. His ex wife and Sebastian moved to Belize. Jon hasn't seen his son in 14 years. We have looked and tried to find him but we were not able. Friday night I recieved a phone from Kristina (Sebastians' mom) that they are back in Canada for a litle while and Sebastian would love to meet his father. Thank you Kristina.....



Saturday was a whirlwind of activity and around lunch time Sebastian arrived at our home. He and his mother sat at our table and we talked. There was no anger, no malice just gratitude and it was fabulous! The boys were really excited to meet their big brother. They always knew about Sebastian and hoped someday to meet him. Well that day came. Jack & Diane came over on Saturday to see their grandson, they didn't want to let him go! His Aunt Brigette also came. There were many tears of joy.



Sunday he came back and spent the day with us and meeting his aunts and uncles that have missed him over the years. It was a little overwhelming for everyone.



Sebastian is a beautiful, polite, sweet young man. He is respectful, and shy. He loves to tinker and work on cars (sound familiar) He has the biggest smile and is really really tall (6'2")



Here is Jon, Sebastian, Papa, Cody & Tyler

Wow! What a phone call that must have been! My dh also found his son after a few years of having given up custody to his ex's new husband. He was lucky that when she left him, she called dh to ask if he wanted to get to know his son. His son was 7 when he found out who his dad was. He's almost 20 now, and they are very close. I'm so happy for your family!
