I am 50 years old and have never known the story of my "real" father until recently when my mother shared. She called him and set up a phone call, without my knowing. So, unexpectly, she told me he is waiting for me to call...I did call him because I've always wondered about him and his life. We talked about the basics, the situation and how it happened, our families. He's thought of me from time to time and did want to meet, but didn't want to push me. So, now it is a couple of months later and I am ready. We are meeting at a diner tonight. We've already discussed the basics. I do want to ask about medical history, but I don't know what to talk about or ask beyond that. I'm not nervous now, but I know I will be. Any help?
