Everyone says oh it'll be so nice to meet.
It will be so sweet.

Worried that yes we are sisters, but we are
strangers to each other.

What will we say,
Am I alright this way.

Worried for nothing, Having a sister is like
a special friend.

Accepting what she see's
Letting me be ME.

This reunion was a breeze.
They say you can choose your friends, but not your family.
Never made sense to me.
After meeting my sister, I would choose her as my friend.
This Meeting made me feel complete.

------- Author's Notes -------

I was adopted and met my real sister today. She just turned 60. and after all this time wwe got together.

It was exciting we found out we both hate mushrooms and we both aren't great cooks. I had to write about it.She looks like me only older so I got to see what I will look like. If anyone is adopted and reads this meet your siblings even if you don't want to have a relationship that's fine but for but for curiosity and closure you need it.
