When I first saw the message my jaw dropped and it took a couple of seconds for me to catch my breath. Leave it to Facebook to give my ex-husband a way to contact me and it only took 24-1/2 years. This would be husband #1. The one I married in 1989. The one I was married to for a total of 5 months – yeah, that one.
The message was brief but effective. He asked a lot about my (our) son. He says he’s been looking for us for years. The message was dated two weeks ago and it got caught in my filtered messages folder. I never check that folder and it just so happens that when I randomly looked at it today – my son was home for the weekend.
I did not think twice about sharing the message with my son. After all, he’s soon to be 26 years old. If he was under 18 I might have thought twice. After he read the message I asked him what he wanted me to do.
“Respond to his questions and give him a link to my FB page.” “You sure?” “Yes.”
So I did.
Now we wait …
