I found Stephanie on Facebook. I know it has to be her. It’s her birthday and it’s just got to be her. I’m like so excited because I have been searching for her since we lost touch back in ’01. I know I can’t have her back as a sister in my house, but I want to be able to still be her friend. I just need it to happen. I need to know that sometimes good things can happen. Sometimes you can find people who meant the world to you. Maybe I could actually have a moment of happiness if I get to talk to her.
And you know what I found out? She graduated from the same high school in the same year as Anthony from YSA, so I decided to pester him for details about what she was like. Admittedly that was years ago, but he might still remember something, right? I mean, I haven’t seen her in 8 years, and I miss her still and would love to have just a little information so that I can know she’s okay. She was the closest thing I’ll ever have to a sister, and not being able to see her finish growing up and becoming what I hope is a wonderful young woman, it just broke my heart. So maybe, she’ll accept my friend request and maybe Anthony can tell me something while I wait.
Keep your fingers crossed.
