Yoon: What’s the matter? Are you okay?
Kelly: You know that my mother’s funeral was last weekend. I brought some of her papers home with me to sort through and I’ve had a shock.
Yoon: What? An old family secret? Some skeleton in the closet?
Kelly: It was for my mother. While reading some of her letters, I found out that she had a son out of wedlock when she was young and she gave the baby up for adoption.
Yoon: Wow, that’s a bombshell!
Kelly: Yeah, I feel like I’ve been sucker punched. This is life- changing.
Yoon: Maybe you can ask your aunts and uncles about it.
Kelly: But what if my mother didn’t disclose this to me for a reason? I don’t want to air her dirty laundry now that she’s gone.
Yoon: You wouldn’t be airing dirty laundry. A part of your family history has come to light and you have questions. That’s natural. And plus, you’re keeping it in the family.
Kelly: But maybe they’ll feel like I’m dredging up something they wish had been forgotten.
Yoon: Or maybe they’ve been waiting for a chance to talk about it. You haven’t mentioned the most shocking part.
Kelly: What’s that?
Yoon: You may have a half-brother somewhere out there.
Kelly: Oh my God, you’re right. That possibility is both thrilling and terrifying!
