We're happy to hear that they're taking the time to cultivate a real relationship instead of just rushing into it!
Oprah Winfrey appeared today on The Gayle King Show to talk further about her newly-discovered half-sister, Patricia - who was given up for adoption as an infant by their mother, Vernita Lee - and she revealed that they're taking their new relationship slowly!
"We're taking it slow. I think it's about building a relationship one conversation – one experience – at a time. I think we have…the common interest of our mother. Everybody who's dealing with an ailing parent understands that process of getting care for them. And we're speaking regularly about that. I had her to dinner at my house the night before we taped the show. There were conversations about [Patricia's] family and how I can be helpful. She coming into the family at this time has been a great peace offering, a great symbol of peace-making in this family. I would say I see her as a gift."
We're pretty sure that the feeling is mutual, bb!
Luckily, you two now have the opportunity to really know each other as sisters, and hopefully build the relationship that you've deserved to have since childhood!
Things happen for a reason, and it's wonderful that you're both aware of what a gift it really is!
