Papi has been in and out of my life for most of my life, but at least I know who he is! This isn’t the case for everyone including Jette Collins, a young teenage boy who is seeking her biological dad – on Facebook.
Collins posted the Facebook photo above with as a sign that shares details about his biological father. It’s not much as he’s never met him. He only knows his bio-dad’s name is Jason and that he met his mother at K-Rockathon festival in 1996 in Syracuse, N.Y. Jette’s mom and biological father had a “one-night stand” together and then came baby – AKA Jette.
And his Facebook plea has now gone viral! Jette has over 3K comments, 10K likes and over 12K shares. He was even interviewed by ABC News and had this to see about his social media search for daddy:
“I’m not asking for much. I’m not asking for money. He could have his own life and be happy and want nothing to do with me, which is fine. I just want to be able to meet him and get the chance to say, ‘Hi.'”
Here’s to Jette finding his poppa so they can be “friends” on Facebook and perhaps build a relationship offline.
