Since people wanted an update on how everything is right now original post btw
My little bro was born last week and Im still the only Giuseppe in the family (and my grandpa).
I did like some of u were saying to do and had another talk with my dad to get him to understand.
I’m glad everyone agreed it was super weird and for bringing up that it could cause some identity issues in the future if we have the same name. Plus the fact that it feel like she trying to replace me and take a name away that she didn’t even know about until she met me.
My dad actually heard me this time and he said he was sorry for not fully thinking about how this would make me feel.
He listened more when I brought up the identity thing and how it could cause problems for us in the future so thanks for mentioning that! But after that he still wouldn’t talk to Kailey about changing her mind.
My uncle (his brother) and his other family actually started giving him shit after I told them. They told him that’s weird af and my uncle even told Kailey too which made her super mad. So after my dad was like okay he’s not gonna be named that at all.
They had lot of fights over it because Kailey wouldn’t let it go. But my dad said there was no way in hell the baby was also gonna be named Giuseppe and they were gonna have a big problem if she tries to name him that.
Not gonna say he threatened to end things cause I wasn’t in the room when they had their fight but it was pretty big the way he said it. So yeah she gave up but she was being super super b*tchy to me for a while.
It was awkward but whatever I was just glad she stopped with the name thing. The name they give my bro isn’t close to mine at all. Anyways he’s really cute, my dad says he looks just like me when I was born XD. Gonna be boring until I can play with him in a few months lol.
Kailey is still being different but she doesn’t say anything when I’m holding my brother. He cries a lot but I love him a lot and happy he’s not Giuseppe 2.0.
So some context to help this all make a bit more sense; I'm a guy in my 30s. My mum died when I was a kid (like, young enough that I don't really remember her) and my dad was very much not fit to be a single parent. Put plainly, he was incredibly neglectful and pretty emotionally abusive. I basically raised myself and as a result, he and I have never really gotten along. It got worse in my teenage years; I can admit some fault in that, I was definitely what most people would call a "problem child"; I didn't go to school much and was often in trouble when I did, I got involved in quite a bit of petty crime (mostly shoplifting and vandalism), was a contrary little shit...all that to say tensions rose big time through my teen years and it all culminated in Dad kicking me out when I was 16. We didn't talk for ages, until I was 20 and his new wife had a baby and I wanted to be involved with my half brother who I'll call James.
So, fast forwards to now and the current situation. James is 15 now and he and I are great pals. He and Dad have a much better relationship than Dad and I do. Honestly, it's like Dad's a different person. He's kind to James, attentive to his needs, supportive of his hobbies (both financially and emotionally), pays for him to go to a good private school....you get it. Dad and I's relationship is better than it was but it's still strained. Honestly it's a case of "we avoid each other as much as possible and are just civil when we have to see each other". Anyone with eyes can see we don't really get on, James included.
Last week, he asked me why we don't get on. I was hesitant at first, because like...I don't want to ruin things between he and Dad. I understand that people change and that's what's happened with Dad. But I didn't really want to lie to him, so I asked him if he'd spoken to Dad about it. He said that Dad told him about my behavioural issues as a teen but that was all. I basically said that, while thst wasn't necessarily untrue, it wasn't the whole story and explained how Dad mistreated me. James just kinda got quiet and seemed kinda shocked and say he didn't realise Dad could be like that. I assured him he isn't that way any more, but he was when I was a kid and a lot of it was unforgivable (at least in my opinion).
Well, I guess James later grilled Dad about it and it ended in a fight between them where James called Dad out on being an abuser and Dad told him to stop trying to get involved in stuff that doesn't concern h... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (34F) biological father (63M) has several children with different women. I knew of their existence but I don’t have a relationship with my father and haven’t seen him since I was two or spoken to him since I was seven.
When I was 24 I received a FB message from someone claiming to be my older half brother (36M at the time). I connected with him and his wife (27F at the time) and after speaking on the phone a couple of weeks they asked to come stay with me (we live in different states) and try to find jobs (at Walmart) and eventually get an apt. This made me uncomfortable because even though we’re technically family, we really didn’t know each other.
I finally told them I just didn’t feel comfortable and I offered to fly out to their city with my bf so we could meet, but they insisted on meeting me if I came alone. They threatened to show up to my home and said if I turned them away I was heartless.
They started calling me non-stop so we could get to know each other better and would call several times a day while I’m at work, on the subway home or late at night while I’m asleep. If I didn’t answer the phone they’d call me back to back until I answered or call me from a blocked number. They said it was their attempt to get to know me better so I’d be comfortable with them coming to stay with me, but I felt like they were annoying and didn’t respect boundaries.
After a few weeks I told them I didn’t want them coming to my home at all because of their behavior. We stopped talking for 6 months and they contacted me from a new number and started with the when can we stay with you and you’re a bad person and I stopped talking to them again.
It’s been years and we’ve never met and I’ve accepted that we probably won’t. On the rare occasion that we do speak, My brother and SIL like to remind me I wasn’t there for them in their time of need and my response is usually “I’m sorry you feel that way”.
My half-brother was just found not guilty for raping me for years when I was a little kid. My entire family has been on my brother's side the entire time and this just made it easier for them to say I'm just a vindictive liar with behavior issues. Now they're sending me to some boarding school in Arizona for out-of-control teenage girls so they don't have to put up with me anymore, because apparently having a drinking problem (which I have because of trauma) is worse than being a rapist.
Edit: stop just telling me to stop drinking. You should all know it's not that simple, and it's my choice if I want to start getting help for it right now.
This is a really weird question but for some reason it’s turned into a whole issue.
When I (16m) was born my parents named me Giuseppe after my grandpa on my mom’s side.
My parents divorced when I was 5 but my mom got sick when was 12 and past away a year later so I had to go live full time with my dad. 2 years ago my dad started dating Kailey until they got married. I’m not close with Kailey but that’s not cause we don’t like eachother. We just don’t talk a lot and I’m always staying with my grandma or uncle on my moms side when I’m not at my dad’s.
They found out they’re pregnant months ago and also learned it’s a boy. Ever since Kailey keeps saying she also wants her son to be named Giuseppe cause she likes the name so much and how it sounds. I straight up told her that’s my name and would be weird having my half bro having the exact same name as me.
Kailey said it wasn’t weird at all and I don’t “own the name” so I can’t say it’s mine. She seemed really mad that I called it weird and said I should get used to it because that’s the name they’re deciding on.
My dad backed her up at first but we talked a little more. I just told him it didn’t feel right for us two to have the exact same name and maybe that could be a middle name or something if she likes it so much.
He talked to Kailey about changing it as a middle name so the first name can be something else but she just got more mad. Now she says I’m ruining this whole experience by making a big deal over a name.
My dad is in the middle, he’s willing to back me up and not let Kailey name their baby that but says I should just let it go. My uncle (dad’s brother) and some of my friends agree it’s weird but Kailey is being super cold so idk if I’m wrong here.
I 26(m) live in a home with my disabled 35(f) sister that we both inherited from our dad when he passed away. He passed about six weeks ago, and I moved in shortly after to look after my sister as our mom passed away a few years ago.
Our dad wasn’t a good guy, but he wasn’t a bad guy either, and I guess the same could be said about my mom. When I was younger my mom and dad split up for a few years. My dad got another woman pregnant and my mom got pregnant with my sister so technically I have a 1/2 brother who does not live here nor do I know and my sister is my 1/sister.
I know a little bit about my younger “brother.” He was raised with another 1/2 brother by his grandmother as his mom got around just like my dad. He apparently had a ok life. I admit it’s weird. My dad or I never spoke to him. He lived in the other side of town his whole life but we never knew him. He lived in a trailer park in the south where problems did happen but I’ve never heard of anything to major. He and his brother are close for what that matters.
My parents got back together and my dad raised my sister as his own. He bought this home before they got back together and it needed, and still needs work however my uncle was able to improve a lot. It’s a good home and has a lot of things that help my sisters life be easier.
Last week I received notice that the estate is being challenged by my half brother. He is claiming a portion of the home and inheritance as there was not will and he has a legal right. When my dad died he didn’t leave a real will behind and neither did my mom. The best we have is a old video that says my dad leaves everything to his kids which he wasn’t raised by my dad or mom.
I had to pay for a consultation with a lawyer and he gave me some grim news a few days later. I guess my dad did a DNA years ago that concluded he was his bio dad and he never paid child support for him, and due to there being no will he is entitled to his “fair” share, and the video helps his case.
The thing is, my sister doesn’t know my dad isn’t her real dad. This is going to crush her, and I can’t afford to buy our “brother” out of his share of the home. My sister needs were built around this home! I reached out I explain this to him but he said it wasn’t his problem.. it’s like he didn’t care at all.
I’ve reached out his family to try to explain and they’ve been surprise to hear this too. They’ve told me they are disappointed in him, but his brother reached out and said I was... keep reading on reddit ➡
The title probably sounds terrible, but please let me explain. I (15F) have a half-brother (16M). His father cheated on his mother with my mom when he was only one years old and after a few months of hooking up had me.
This destroyed his family and cause his mom to run off to another country and forget she ever had a kid. My dad then married my mom after a few months of dating so my Half-Brother (James) would have a mom. They were always very open about the cheating and clearly favor me.
I don’t condone their actions but I also don’t really care. It is not something that I need to care about. Anyway, James has always bullied me and been really mean. He has done things like not invite me to events that I should be invited to (Think things like graduation from Middle School), Yell at me if he is mad (even if I did nothing), Tell me hurtful things like I should never have been born...
My dad has always told me that I deserve it because I am an affair baby and I should just suck it up. (He is really guilty of cheating and probably resents me). My mom yells at James if she can, but sometimes she can’t.
Well yesterday, James told me that he wished I was just adopted because I am ugly and don’t deserve happiness. I have body positivity issues and got deeply offended by this. I told him to just yell at dad or mom, but I don’t care what my parents did. It is not my fault they had an affair.
He then started screaming and crying and my dad came up and told me that he is right and I should feel ashamed of myself. I am now grounded and have to right a 10 page essay on why it IS my fault that his parents cheated. I don’t think I am TA but considering the the circumstances I can see why I could be, because I was kind of rude.
But Reddit, what do you think?
Edit 1: Just so nobody gets confused by favoring me it was meant as that they have more of a connection with me than with James. But, my dad gets guilty sometimes and that’s when he starts to do these sorts of punishments. Sorry for the confusion.
Edit 2: Thanks everyone for your thoughtful comments! I’ll update everyone if necessary!
My grandson (Mac, 16M) is our late son's son. Our son died when Mac was 6 and his mother (Alice) got remarried and now has another son (8M). Our grandson visits my husband and I every year and we've never had any sort of trouble with Alice or her current husband.
Unfortunately last year Mac was unable to visit for obvious reasons but now, the situation where we live has changed and he can now come and visit us. Trouble is that Mac's half brother also wants to come along this time. Alice asked whether it would be ok for the half brother to tag along with Mac for 1/3 weeks Mac is visiting since he really wants to come along and she thinks it'll be good for him to leave the city for a while as well. Mac was also wants to bring his half brother cause he wants to show the brother our animals. Mac kept saying he'll take care of his brother and we don't have to worry.
I wasn't keen on the idea of the brother tagging along so I told Alice that he can't come. Alice didn't really push the point but Mac called me begging me to allow him to bring his little brother since it's only for a week. But I refused since I really don't know the kid too well and he's not my grandson. I have nothing to do with him. Alice sent me a message saying that she understands if I don't want the 8 year old to visit but she feels a little hurt because she considers us to be her family and it hurts to know that we don't consider her and her son our family. But again we do love our actual grandson and have him over every year. I have nothing against Mac's half brother but he's not my grandson. He has his own grandparents. It's also a little weird that Mac who is 16 wants to bring along his 8 year old brother so I suspect maybe Alice is making him say these things.
Mac is now refusing to visit us and saying he'd rather stay home. But I think he's bluffing. He enjoys visiting us. My husband thinks we should just let it go and allow Mac's half brother to visit as well since we have the space. But I think that if we stand firm, Mac will come visit us anyway.
I'm not really trying to hurt anyone. I just want my grandson to visit us not his brother even if he is easy to take care of. I don't understand why Alice thinks it's appropriate to ask anyway. AITA?
Throwaway for obvious reasons.
So my brother is very very successful which has made him very cocky and made him think he is some kind of a God which is disgusting. I do not begrudge him his success but its obvious why she is with him. They met when she was 20 which just makes it even more perverse in additon to the fact that she looks much younger than her age, she looks like his teenage daughter. She is a very beautiful girl and at university as I understand, only met her twice however this is just so gross and icky and everyone in my family is very concerned, he seems obsessed with her. Trying talking to him to consider the age difference but he gets very defensive anytime we mention her and he expects us to be fully ok with this. As far as I understand her mother is very "modern" and on board. I am just so grossed out even when I think of it, how do I try to get him to see sense in a tactful way? Some of his friends that I know have a "what a lucky son of a bitch" mentality so no use getting them to talk to him.
TLDR: My brother plans to marry a girl that looks like his teenage daughter, how do I get him to see sense?
This is long as hell but bear with me here
So my (F16) dad (M50) and my mom (F44) have been divorced before I was even born (They only knew each other for like a year and basically eloped btw, it'll make sense later) but he only remarried when I was 8. My step mom (F32) and him have 3 kids together whom I absolutely adore even though they're all younger than me.
Anyway, when I was over at my dads place I was on the phone with my mom and she very briefly mentioned that he had been previously married (not mentioning that he had another child). It was only a passing joke that she obviously didn't really mean to say since when I pressed about it she just kinda waved it off and was quick to hang up on me. When me and my dad were cleaning up after dinner (my siblings were in the living room btw which is closed off from where we eat) I made a kind of passive agressive comment about "his past family" which was wrong of me but I was peeved.
At this point he fucking pales and is all like "who told you that" and I keep quiet as he gets increasingly angry and begins to yell at me. I was overall very upset but I reluctantly apologized before I went off back upstairs. When my stepmom comes in later to try to calm me down and apologize for him, she -tactfully- tells me not to go looking for my brother and bring up "bad memories". After I marched downstairs to confront him he places blame on my stepmom for telling me about that (she obviously thought I already knew) and while she's a piece of work, this isn't her fault. He refuses to admit that he is in the wrong and pretends that I had absolutely no right to know. I asked my mom to drive over and pick me up and I left an hour later.
Also, when I vented to my cousin(F16) on my dad's side (We're v close plus I wanted to know if there was anything else going on), she told me that she had been explicitly told to lie to me if it ever came up and that everyone else in the family had been sworn to secrecy. She also said that she heard from her parents that my brother had been trying to contact me by asking his mother to ask my dad for my contact information. My dad had apparently shot this down immediately and my aunt and uncle had tried to talk him out of it but it was no use (The first time she heard about it was in feb of last year). I don't even know my brothers name but what I do know is that he's 19 and goes to college super close to me. Like literally 2 towns over and when he started my dad tried to get my mom to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have three full siblings, and a half sibling. I’m the youngest (20), a middle brother(21), and a older brother (25). When my mom was 5 months pregnant with me, she found out that my father was having an affair with a married coworker who was 8 months pregnant. It was revealed that the married coworker’s baby was my father’s. She divorced my dad. My dad was a dead beat. Mom was awesome growing up.
Brother decided to have a 19th birthday party at my mom’s house. Mom and I came home, and a girl was there. I realized that it was my half-sister. I was shocked, I had never really had any contact with this girl because we lived in different cities, and to be honest I never had the desire to have a relationship with a stranger just because we had the same sperm donor. Eldest brother agrees with me. She tried to give me a hug but I pushed her off me, and told her not to touch me. My mom, on the other hand, lost her shit. She asked him what the fuck she was doing here and how dare he bring her into the house. My brother said that he just wanted to introduce her to us and they had been in contact for the past six months, and he looked my way for help. I looked away. He took her home and we sat down for a family meeting. My mother essentially told James that him having contact with our half sister felt like a stab in the back, and that the sight of that girl brought out all the ugly feelings that she had pushed down years earlier. After noticing that nobody but himself wanted contact with her, he told us he wasn’t going to have contact with her. I thought that was that, and life continued as normal.
My grandmother passed away, and left everything to my mother, who was her only living child. Mom drafted a will where she split that inheritance between us three equally. Three months ago, mother and older brother ran into my brother at Starbucks with my half sister. Turns out that middle brother had been letting her stay in the apartment that my mother had pays for, and she had been there for the past 4 months.
My mom said nothing at the time, but a couple days later she emailed us a copy of a new drafted will. She had split the inheritance between my eldest brother and I in half, and had left middle brother $25 and my grandfather’s beater car. He lost his shit, came to the house and asked me how mom could do this to him. I instantly rebutted with a “Well, what the fuck did you expect?”, and he called me a raging... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is a throwaway, so a while ago my mum told me about this situation, where she knew my best friends mum years ago and she had gotten married and had a baby boy but she didn’t stay with the dad. She then got married to another man and had 3 children with him. My mum only knew this story because she was friends with my bf mums sister, sorry if that’s a little confusing.
Anyways when she told me this she said that the other children don’t know that their brother is actually their half brother. Since knowing this, she’s told me not say anything, and I know it’s not my place but it’s made me feel guilty knowing another persons secret, we’ve been friends for over nearly 10 yrs. I feel I’m in a bit of a pickle.
Throwaway account as my brother knows my main.
Some backstory, During his prime years my Grandpa had joined the Airforce and had flew UH-1 Huey's during the Vietnam War. When I was younger my Grandpa would tell me the 'family' stories from his time deployed. When I was young my parents split and my dad had married on and had another child. During my childhood my Grandpa would continue to tell stories to me and my brother wasn't very interested. When I turned 18 I joined the Army as a helicopter pilot and 6 years and 2 months later I had gotten my Wings qualified on the UH-60 Black Hawk. As celebration gift my Grandpa had given me his old Airforce Ceremonial uniform and Medals. My half brother has always down talked joining the military saying things like "Why would somebody sell their body to the government" and subtle jabs at me for joining the service
This brings us to present day. My Grandpa had gotten cancer and after a long battle sadly he had passed away. I had told my parents that I'm going to wear his ceremonial uniform during the funeral and afterwards my half brother asked me if he would be able to wear it instead. I had flat out said no and he kept pushing me to let him wear it saying things like it was unfair because I already had my uniform to wear and that it was a completely different service anyways.
Day of the funeral comes along and I get the uniform looking spick and Span and the medals nice and clean. The whole time my brother was giving me dirty looks and glaring at me. When I went up to say my final goodbye I had put his medals onto his chest, saluted and moved to where everybody else was for the burial.
After the funeral my brother had went onto social media saying that I'm an asshole for not letting him remember grandpa by giving him the uniform to wear. I responded to the post saying telling people about his views on servicemen and women as well as his attitude towards my service. He shorty called me screaming at me so I just hung up.
I do understand where he's coming from as I do have my uniform I could of worn instead and should have talked to him privately about his post but I also feel like he should've just taken no as an answer.
Zeke reveals that Ymir has been forcing him to make skin-tight shorts for some reason
Armin sees a figure behind him that looks to be a Lemur. Armin, deep down knows who this is.
Armin cries out Eren's to stop the rumbling. The lemur says "I am not Eren. I am King Julian"
The lemur says "Mort, I like to move it move it"
Armin suddenly turns into a small lemur and that beat sounds catchy so he sings "I like to move it move it" He now believes that his name is actually Mort
The two repeat together "I like to move it move it"
This sound reaches the outside and the entire alliance and all of the Titans says in unison "We like to...MOVE IT"
The Alliance decides to give up on stopping King Julian as they too turn into animals.
King Julian completes the rumbling as everyone sings in harmony
King Julian returns home to Historia, who has already turned into Maurice.
King Julian, using the founder's power, turns everyone on the island into animals and renames the island "Madagascar"
The next two chapters are the entire cast singing "I like to move it move it"
Please see my past post for the whole story. Finally had the chance to speak with my mother. Turns out I am a rape baby. She went out with friends and one of them slipped something on her drink, took advantage of her. Dad almost killed him, mom was too ashamed to report it to the authorities supposedly. Apparently my father and my mom always knew it was a possibility, but since I randomly was born with 6 fingers like my cousins they figured I was my fathers.
Apparently the guy learned about the pregnancy but wanted nothing to do with it. He was married and just starting a new carrier teaching as an engineer in a prestigious university so I was too much of a scandal to have in his life. What a dip shit. Mom provided me his name and info, found his Facebook and turns out I have 3 more unknown half brothers. Great, more surprises. Not sure if I’ll even be reaching out since my origins have turned out to be so horrible. What would I even talk with the guy? Ask him why were you such a piece of shit? I have extreme curiosity for that whole other family I don’t know about, but I am not sure I can ever get over the fact I am part of that family because of rape. What a horrible outcome.
Just wanted to update people on the drama caused by my results. Thanks 23andme for blowing my fucking mind.
My (22f) dad died six months ago and took custody of my younger brother (15). My dad's wife turned to drugs and this meant CPS intervened and took my half sister (6) away from her. They asked me if I would take her and I said no. So her maternal grandparents took them. They have been on my back via social media about rejecting her while taking my brother and how if I won't take care of both I should let them have my brother. I told them I wasn't obligated to take her in and she had them so all was fine.
They still think I'm an asshole and especially since I became my brothers full legal guardian (instead of temporary which it was for the first three months).
I (17f) have a 13 year old cousin called Daniel (fake name). Daniel is my mom's older sisters son. During lockdown we found out my uncle isn't actually Daniel's father, my father is. My father and my aunt had an affair for almost 5 years and almost left their spouses for each other. The only reason it didn't happen is my father was afraid I wouldn't forgive him. But during lockdown my uncle found out about the affair and Daniel's true paternity, which was confirmed by a DNA test in the summer, and shit hit the fan. My mom kicked my father out and cut her sister off. And the whole family have been pushing for me to switch from Daniel being my cousin to my brother.
But I still see him as my cousin, not my brother.
I have spent enough time with him to know how I feel and I was always more meh with him. I didn't hate every second with him but we're very different people and I can't say I feel this deep love for him like a brother. Besides, it's weird. I know this shit isn't abnormal but it has rocked me and I know my mom is still picking up the pieces.
My grandparents and some other family have said I'm an asshole for not going out of my way to be Daniel's big sister now and they push me all the damn time. I think it might be because my mom has basically retreated from the family so she doesn't have to see her older sister or Daniel. She spent a lot of time with Daniel and I know she feels deceived and like she was being laughed at the whole time she spent with him and with m father being married since the affair started.
My aunt tried to force her way into back in August to try and talk to my mom so they could move on. My mom told her she was dead to her and she was down a sister and if she ever came to our home again she would call the police because she is not welcome.
My grandmother invited me over a few weeks ago and told me how Daniel is innocent in the whole thing and he deserves to have his sister be his sister. That I'm older and I'm almost an adult and I have been more responsible and adult than most teenagers she knows and she feels like I'm letting hurt make me childish. I told her it's not like we'll never be in each other's lives. We still will be. But it won't be all that different. She said that was wrong and I need to be a better person.
When I was 11 I finally got up the courage to tell my family about the abuse he put me through when I was little, and they were basically like "that sucks but what do you want us to do about it?". I'm 14 now (he's 22) and they basically expect me to act like it never happened. They put me in therapy and just expected that to fix it all, and they're so annoyed that I still can't stand to be around him and want him to move out. Even though it stopped when I was 8 and I know he's not going to do anything to me anymore, I'm still scared of him and living in the same house as him is terrifying. My parents act like I'm insane for thinking that and they're refusing to kick him out or let me move across the country to live with other family.
Would be great for the girls to catch up with Kyle’s brother Jeremy! He talks about his cousin Scott, but hasn’t mentioned his brother in a while! Let’s get Jeremy Myers on the show!
I've been curious about getting one of these tests for a long time and so has my brother but we only really want to spend the money if it'll confirm our suspicions. We look very different and we found out some things about our mother after her death that made us question the family history.
Literally her reason was because she would have to change my diapers and did not want to look at it, her words. She told me to shut up and not speak back to her or she will kick me out which she can since I'm 18 now. Fucking bitch. My father tried talking sense into her but he let her get her way because she ALWAYS has to get her way. Not only that but I'm a tight ci 1 and I bet the bitch asked the doctor to circumcise me extra hard.
Final Edit - https://imgur.com/a/Kk3l0AK - Sirius has passed away in the hospital. We are told he did not suffer. Thank you all so much, we got to see him one last time. We loved him so much. I spent an hour petting him, and staying watch for him.
*edit* - I am absolutely in awe, We reached 70 dollars. All together, we have 310 now to pay for the bill, and myself and my brother will split the bill. Annie , Alliison, and Holly, I thank you so much, who and where ever you are, as well as the many anonymous donors, you've helped us very much in a time of pain and sadness. My brother is hurting a lot, but knowing things won't be so hard, and that people have helped, means a lot. I intend to show an image of Sirius here, if I am allowed to, once he is better and home in our bed.
*edit 2* - Thank you all, we reached the goal of 100 dollars last night. All together, we have 321 now, and myself and my brother will be splitting the rest. It means so much!
