on genetics

So I posted about the twin study article on my FB group.

and a FB friend replied talking about how she met her half siblings and she found it pretty life-changing and awesome. Though she talked about other people who met their siblings and it wasn't that great.

And I was like. What the heck.

I added almost all the names that was on my father's orbituary on facebook. And sent them a quick note.
I didn't even know my father was dead until my husband mentioned something his mom said. And my FIL sent me the orbituary, he's a bit of an ancestor geek.

We'll see if anything comes out of it. They're from a rich family so they may think that I just want money. So they may not answer. But who knows. Life is short.



So life is short. And I'm curious.

Anyways, I am now 36 years old, and just curious about all my half siblings and I think you are technically my newphew. smile emoticon

My father was Atang Latief. I assume he was your grandfather? If not, disregard it.

A bit about me, I grew up with my mother and her family, I knew who my father was, but we don't talk about him much. When I was 18 I moved to the United states to get a computer science degree at Cornell University. Graduated and moved to Austin, Texas to work.

I got married about 5 years ago, to my husband Andy. You can see his picture in my Facebook. Or here, in my photography page:

I now have a lovely daughter, she's still a baby.

Things I love doing: dancing, reading, writing, filmmaking, art.

My indonesian is not very lancar since I don't really hang out with Indos.

Anyways, I know this is an odd letter. But what the heck. Life is short.
I don't really want anything, besides getting to know the other genetic half of my family.

I got your name from my Father's orbituary.
