One evening, she sat Luke down and tried to gently explain what had happened many years ago. She explained that he was chosen and that she did not want any other child but him. That he was always wanted and always desired. She prayed his little heart wouldn’t break after hearing the big news and that he wouldn’t be traumatized by all that had happened.
As expected, Luke was shocked. His eyes widened, and he didn’t say a word. Janice assured him that everything she had ever done was because she loved him and that everything was in his good interest. Luke asked to meet Leon.
What Should She Do?
The decision-making wasn't easy. Was there such a thing as the right thing to do? And what about Luke? How would he take in all of the news? And Leon? And his parents? There were too many people involved. It wasn't just her.
Janice forced herself to believe that Luke would be happy by discovering a new family. He would embrace his new brother and never think of judging his mother for the decisions she made so many years ago. No matter what the outcomes of this ended up being, Janice knew the clock was ticking, and within no time, the truth was going to be out there.
Was It Decision Time?
There it was, black on white. There was no arguing with it. Luke and Leon were identical twin brothers who were presumably separated at birth. Now, she had to see how to handle this big issue and what to do next. She couldn't do this alone, so she decided to contact the adoption agency for some guidance.
They would be able to give her the tools to assist her. She already knew the truth and felt that she could not keep this a secret from Luke anymore. It was time he knew where he came from and, more importantly, that he had a twin brother. A real twin brother.
There Was More to Come
As Janice and Luke were not the only people involved, she wasn't sure Luke could meet Leon so easily and wasn't sure his request could be answered. Although she didn't know if the two boys' meeting would ever happen now, she assured him that they would meet. She didn't want to disappoint him anymore.
Janice had no idea if the big reunion was really going to happen, but she knew she was going to do everything in her power that it would. She knew that Leon's parents might not be very open about the adoption issue, and she knew that maybe they had no interest in reuniting the brothers for whatever reason.
His Long Lost Brother
Luke always wanted a brother, and now he was about to get one. She didn't want to get his hopes up, but she had a strong feeling that this episode was going to end with tears of joy. Meanwhile, Janice tried to get more information from the DNA labs, like a last name or someone else who might share the same DNA, too.
She wanted to get all of the information she could before approaching Leon's parents. It was hard enough as it was, and she needed something to make it a little easier. This news was going to be a life changer for everyone.
