Guess I was kind of sad when I wrote this one...........although really, you can't be sad for missing someone you've never met.

I don't have any cousins or anunts and uncles whom I know.
My mom is an only child.
My dad has two estranged sisters so I don't know my two aunts and saw two of my six cousins at my grandma's funeral years ago..........

I have several cousins from all sides. This is a bit complicated...I am a reunited adult adoptee, and my (A) family has twists and turns in it as well as my (B) family, which is really quite, um yeah.

My (A) dad has a sister who has, err had 5 daughters (one passed away in 2010), I was not very close to her and three of her sisters, mainly because I wasn't raised around four of them, and the second oldest I was - she and I have always been closest. Mainly because growing up, she was the oldest, and I was the youngest of all six grandchildren (technically seven). Each of the cousins has at least one child, making a set of second cousins, and no, no closeness there either - it's an age thing I guess.
Where as my (A) mom has / had a half brother (he passed away in 2004) who has a son. That would be another cousin to me...I don't know him very well either. I know he was named after my uncle, and they lived with my grandparents for a while...
My (B) mom is 4th in line of 12 children, last count 10 were still living. At my (B) grandpa's funeral (1998), I think someone counted about two-hundred (no joke) 1st cousins had attended. I can recall six of them, and was close to probably all six at one time, five names, and am FB connected with two of them - three if you count the spouse of one cousin, and have a semi-close bond with one of them.
I don't know who my (B) dad is, and since I use a generic comment for who he is in connection with me - which my (B) mom doesn't appreciate...I will never know how many if any cousins (let alone him) I have, or if I already know them, and don't know they are not my cousins, but more like, ummm the other familiarity.
