I guess part of my feeling that the genetic tie is really not the end-all be-all is going to see these people and just...they are so culturally foreign to me. And then there are other people who I am not related to who feel like my family.
They were obsessed about how I looked like this one relative. It was sort of funny--he was kind of...well, not someone I wanted to look like.
It is one facial feature of his. I did have it. He is my...great uncle? I guess?
I feel closer to my in-laws then I do to many blood relatives. MUCH closer.
Maybe it's good my family is so strange from the donor egg side of things.
