    I am so at awe.  On my hub about my Uncle Ross he is there.  He must google himself, IDK.  Hub pages has reunited me with my uncle, the only connection I have to my Father and "the other side". Thankyou Hub Pges for giving me this forum to establish a relationship with a part of me i never knew.

    I never ever thought he would read my Hub it shows you that you just never know who is reading your stuff.  If you will read the comments you will see I was so embarassed.  I did say in my hub that the cereal my grandmother, his mother had tasted it like bird crap. It was Grape Nuts by the way.

    thanks guys,  he left me his email address in my comments but I am scared and embarrassed to write him.  I feel like a child. I need to find out what happened to my dad though.  This is so unreal to me.

    I have waited for this moment most of my life. I am ready for an uncle, I need to know where I came from.  This is a great beginning. On HubPages, who would've thunk it!

    This kind of stuff just makes everything else feel so trivial.  I am so, so happy for you.  Now go and enjoy.

    Just read this for the first time..... Interested to know more about this, how did it happen, and will you meet each other face to face..

    Wow, that is awesome!  I love good news and to hear something like this makes my day!  Thank you for sharing.

    Brenda, we haven't met face to face yet.  I wrote a hub on my uncle Ross because he was a karate and Kickboxing champion.  I ran across some videos of him on Utube.  I wrote the hub about a month ago and the other day he commented on it.  At first I didn't believe it was  him until he commented a second time.  I emailed him and we have been talking via email for the last couple of days.  I m not promoting my hub but you would have to read it to  understand.  Hopefully this will be my link to family I have never met.  It was all because of HP becuase I have trid to find him as well as my dad all my adult life. So HP is better that Reunion.com!  I still can't figure out how he got to my hub, powers that be I guess.  Thanks, I hope this explains it, check out my hub about him and you will see my surprise when he commented!

    It warms my heart to hear stories of "coincidences" such as yours.  Miracles are everywhere... big_smile

  24. fortunerep profile image82
    fortunerepposted 9 years ago

    Ripplemaker,

    conicidences are rare, this was just a miracle. I can't believe he read my hub, it goes to show you never know who is reading which makes me want to write about missing children even more, the only problem with that is when there is an amber alert, my content is considered duplicate by google because there is so little information to provide that hasn't already been provided. I had to unpublish all of my missing children hubs for that reason to get approved. I think the lesson in all of this as that as far as money goes, google could never pay me enough to not want to spread the word about our missing and endangered children.  It also proves to me that hub pages has a stake in this internet madness.  Being reuinted with Uncle Ross or meeting him in general for the first time is worth more than any amount of money.  Who would have thought, hey!!

    Hey Dori -- I think that this is an awesome story! So much, in fact, that I posted a little something about it over here in our blog:
    http://blog.hubpages.com/2009/06/hubpag … ost-uncle/

    Thanks so much for sharing this story and keep us updated with what you find out about your family!

    Congratulations!!!!

    I can relate - I found the paternal side of my family about a year ago after my mother kindly informed me that my other "23 chromosomes" had died. (Gee! nice! Mom - not)

    I contacted the funeral home and was put in touch with them - they had hoped that the funeral announcement would help me and my siblings find them!

    I gained several cousins and 2 younger sisters that I didn't even know existed. They are a hoot!

    Keep in touch with your family and don't be afraid to ask questions when the time seems right to you. They will understand.

    How wonderful - you just never know who will pop up, do you. Makes "Six Degrees of Separation" seem plausible.
