    If this helps with perspective, keep in mind that many times half siblings don't grow up in the same house even if there is not foster care or adoption involved. It would be wonderful to be able to keep track of these other kids and let them all stay in communication, and that would be no different than if they shared the same dad and one set lived primarily with mom and the other with dad.

    And most importantly perhaps, family is love, not biology. You are giving your kids family in spades.

    I agree. Don't pursue but keep in touch.
