Mom vs. Dad

My mother and father got a divorce when I was three years old. My whole life I have wanted to meet and know my dad and finally my twin brother found him by Internet when we were seventeen. My mom did not and does not approve of us seeing or talking to him, for whatever reason, I am not sure. He surprised me at my high school graduation by being there, which my mother does not know. Then last weekend at my grandpa's I finally got to really meet him and my grandparents along with the little sister I never knew I had. My mom does not know anything about me seeing or talking to him and would probably kick me out of the house if she knew. After meeting my dad and the rest of my family I have decided that I want them to be a part of my life, but how do I tell my mother? Do I tell her or just keep on going behind her back? I have always been truthful to my mom, but I don't understand why she doesn't want me to see him, therefore I try not to hurt her and not to hurt my dad. Now I am stuck in between two people and I don't think this should be on my shoulders. I love my mom, but I want to love my dad. Should I confess and make a stand to my mother? Or should I lie low? I wish someone could give me some good advise, because I am being torn apart.

The sensation that a new baby brings is incredible. I am eighteen years old with a twin brother, Josh. A fifteen year old brother, Jeremy and Daven, my seven year old brother. As of October 2, 2006 we have been blessed with a baby sister, Madison. It is amazing how much love they fill your heart with. I consider myself lucky being this much older because I can actually remember her as she grows unlike I did with Daven. Madison's father, Bruce, really had an eye opener, he is thirty eight and this is his first child. We warned him before Madison came that she will have him wrapped around her finger and that he will not be able to ignore her when she cries and he would also have to change some diapers; He denied all of this and four weeks later what we warned is now a fact. My mother, Sharon, laughs when she sees Bruce holding Madison while Bruce marvels at her with love. Babies are the biggest blessing you can get in life. I adore my brothers and sister and do not know what I would do without them, they are my whole life. My grandmother passed away in January of '05 at the tender age of 61 and there is not a day that goes by that I think of her and of how much she would love Madison. Love is your family and what you have to lean on, never forget that.
