    I have a half brother I have never met, who lives in another city to me and recently contacted me via social media, the reason why we were separated is because at a young age my mom left our family due to drug addiction and has spent time in prison for things related to it, I really want to meet my brother but my dad doesn't want me to as there are other members of my family who are very dangerous and have been involved in gun crime, I feel like I won't ever be able to meet him and am just looking for some advice

    How old are you both?
    Will your dad prevent you talking on social media?
    What role is your mum playing in your life? has she got her act together and licked the drugs?


    When you are an adult you will be able to meet him. Yu dont know him yet and you dont know whether its a good thing or not. Imo caution first you cna get to know over social media buy I wouldnt meet till you are ready and even then you need to plan it. Its nice to have a relative, but he is a stranger and if you are young, then you may not appreciate people cna be dangerous and destructive. For the moment you need to respect your dads wishes imo.
