Dad was fooling around on my mother multiple times. He was in and out of the home constantly. when my brother was born my mother couldn't handle him on her own with me financially. She felt it would be best for him to live with a family that could raise him better than she could at the time. I was pissed at her for a good while. I was 9, didn't understand, etc.

I've had them since February when I got my Rezound. There was a website that had legit ones for sale for $40, but I didn't get them.

They still work, although the clip has broken on them and the black finish on the ear-buds is chipping away, but they still sound 100% nice.

My rooted Rezound with NeoMAX ROM:

Well they are really delicate too. The cords get tangled easily and they're really then.

I wouldn't say "back" together. We've never met face-to-face. He found me on the internet. I live in Wisconsin and he lives in Florida. He doesn't seem interested in meeting, but he's interesting in at least communicating. He's pretty much the polar opposite of me. He's very selfish, drinks, smokes, does drugs sometimes seemingly. Everything that I am, he isn't. And everything that he is, I am not.

Do you have any background on how he ended up spending his childhood?

Yep, adoptive mother ended up being an alcoholic. Classic case of a teen hanging with the wrong people and he easy made the wrong choices with them seemingly.

Well, does that at least make you more appreciative about how your life turned out?

Sounds like it's time for you to be a brother.

Sorry to hear that, at least it all ended good with him contacting you! Are you close now?

By the way, it's easy to tell that you're brothers, you look the same.

man, thanks for sharing. it's eerie how similar you guys look. my bro is five years younger and we don't look nearly that similar. he's still young so he can sort out some of those things....i think it's cool he reached out to you. you should definitely keep that line of communication open.
