Jim Scott was raised in Pittsburgh during the Great Depression in the 1930s, and he was always curious about his biological parents.
The first time he saw his birth certificate, it stated that his parents were unidentified.My parents are who? Is it true that I have siblings? Jim might query.
Marylin, Jim’s daughter, set out on a mission to assist her father in unraveling the mystery surrounding his family.
‘Okay, Dad,’ I said. Let’s get going. We started when I placed my DNA test request, Marylin said.’ Then Marylin visited ancestry.com and learned about her father’s life.
Jim was placed in a box and left on a stranger’s doorstep when he was less than two weeks old.
Marylin said, ‘12 days old, just covered in a blanket. He bore the names of the two police officers who discovered him.
Additionally, Marylin was able to locate George, one of Jim’s 45 living blood relatives.We were all attempting to piece this puzzle together, George remarked.
Jim even learned that Felix, a long-lost younger brother, existed. 86-year-old Felix traveled from Pittsburgh to Jim’s home in Philadelphia for a family reunion after the two discovered they were connected.
‘Sure, I’m his younger brother. And we just learned about it when I became 86,’ Felix remarked.
Jim therefore owes me 86 Christmas presents. It’s nice to watch these two brothers laughing and getting along with one another so quickly after only having recently met.
What a charming end to this tale! Jim must be feeling incredibly overwhelmed now that he is aware of his family. May these just formed ties deepen over time.
