Yay!!!! I spoke to Dian’s biological dad today and he’s happy to sign the form to let Dian legally change her surname!!! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!! He and I haven’t spoken for over five years, and I’ve procrastinated calling him about this for the last year or more. What shocked me was that (a) he rang back when I left a message asking him to, and (b) he was quite nice about it!
We won’t be telling Dian about this until it’s final though, he’s let me down before and I’m not going to get her hopes up and risk hurting her again.
