Father’s Deathbed Confession Reunites 2 Long Lost Siblings
It took decades for a Michigan man to tell his kids that he’d fathered another child overseas while he was in the armed forces.
Bryan Brewer Sr. was estranged from his children for 17 years. His children refused to see him in all this time because while growing up, their father was a serious drug abuser. Brewer Sr. was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and was on the verge of dying when he asked to see his daughter 1 more time.
That’s when Jessica Fairbanks and her brother Bryan Brewer Jr. learned of their long lost brother in Germany.
“I asked him if there was anything he wanted to say to me, anything I should know about,” Fairbanks said. “He said, ‘You need to know about your half brother in Germany.’ ”
That’s when she started a social media campaign to find her long lost sibling. In just under 40 hours, she had found him!
