I had a sibling disappear for 18 years under similar circumstances. We'd get hints that he was alive (a bill for hospital care, a call for a job reference etc) every couple of years.

In 2013, after the passing of our father, we finally managed to re-establish contact. We were reluctant to jump into a potentially uncomfortable relationship. We took plenty of time and only advanced at the pace we were all comfortable with. And all us siblings now have a growing relationship.

I'm very happy for you DrRocket. I've been in your shoes and can understand completely.

There is no rush, you have the rest of your lives to build that connection.
