He called to make sure i was working on specific bottlecaps they had asked for (which i didn't - i just didn't have time - i'll make some in the next batch after the wyandotte fair) and in the process he was all "Aunt Jazmyn guess what! Guess who's coming over on Saturday?" "Who?" "My sister. yes. i have a sister now."
At first I thought that his parents had gone through with their plans on adopting a baby girl. The had mentioned it a couple times recently since they've had nothing but boys. It didn't help matters that hubby's mom always wanted a granddaughter and i guess they figured that it would kinda be in her honor. (that sentence doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but my brain is too tired to try and clarify it)
But nope! Z told me that she's 17 years old and she's coming over on Saturday and he'll get to meet her. Then he told me he's gonna see me at the art fair on the 11th and reminded me about his bday party on the 12th. then we were abruptly cut off.
So yea. we have a new niece who is 17. I'm kinda nervous but totally excited to meet her. I don't know if J ever knew about her and just didn't tell anyone, or if her mom kept it a secret until now or what. I have no clue. I do know (from experience with my bio father) that she's gonna want to get to know her family and I'm hoping we can make her feel welcome.
