So, my dad hasn't really been part of my life for 19 years. Our only contact was a couple of phone calls and a face to face about 6 years ago--he then disappeared again and has been unable to contact. I hadn't really thought about him in quite a while. After a couple of hours of being vulnerable with my mentor yesterday, I come back to my office to discover an e-mail from the man. How he tracked me down I have no idea. He gave me his e-mail address and wants to get in touch with 'lil sis too. I wrote back, updated him as to what is going on in my life, and told him that I still loved him. We'll see what happens.
