Its always going to be a shock to the system when something like this comes to light. Whether you decide to meet him or not it doesn't change the fact that you now know that he exists. Maybe talk to a parent or friend about it and see what you think. I wouldn't rush into things maybe take a bit of time to think about it before you make a decision.

This must be a shock for you. It's completely understandable that you have no idea what to do - you've only found out two hours ago. Try to talk to someone you can trust and just talk about how you feel about the whole thing. Ultimately you're the one who'll make the decision, but perhaps you could talk to him over the phone first, or meet him at some later date with family if that's something you want to do. Whatever happens, I hope you're happy with your decision. :hugs:

Personally, i would go to meet him- after all it's only a meeting, you don't have to accept him as a 'brother' as such- just an aquaintaince. I have two half sisters who i have never met- my dad had an affair with my mum resulting in me and his wife chucking him out and refusing to let him see his kids. I am desperate to meet my sisters- just to meet them talk to them! I dont want them to embrace me as family, but if you don't meet him, i think you'll always wonder what he's like.
