I was recently informed by my mother that the man who raised me is not my biological father. Mom had a stroke and wanted me to know before she passes away. Here is what she was able to remember:
His name was Jimmy Ferdic (not sure about the spelling, he told her it was pronounced like verdict, but with an "F"). He may have lived in Miami, Florida or close to there during the late 1950's to early 60's. He may have been previously married, with 2 daughters. He met my mother, Dorothy Sue Emmons in Houston, Texas (she was 19 years old)b. Dec. 31, 1942. They may have dated for several months before breaking up. She did not know she was pregnant. I was born Nov. 20, 1962 in Houston. He saw her and me by the Washburn tunnel when I was 2 weeks old, but mom had married someone else and did not tell him I was his child, but she thinks he may have suspected.
If any of this sounds familiar, please write to me. I just became a grandmother and would like to have correct family information for my children.
