My half brother, we have the same bio-father feels intitaled to our family home. My bio-father and mother built the house. My bio-father passed away when I was 3 yrs old. The house was then my mothers. My mom then got remarried when I was five. Several years later my mother signed over the deed to the house to my step dad . My mother died five years ago. So the house is my step dads. I moved in with my boys four years ago with my step dad. Now he is in a nursing home. I heard through the grapevine that my half brother has retained a lawyer and feels the house should be his because his father (and my mother) had the house built. My mother and step father were married for 27 years, and lived in this house. If my half brother ever lived in this house after I was born, I dont know about it and I'm 37 years old. My step dad has a will that he had drawn up almost 6 years ago leaving me everything including the house. We live in Mississippi.Answer Question

I've got an sister through an adoption (I was the one adopted) so at times I refer to her as my Dad's daughter, and at time she still call me her step-sister. I take no offense. I've also got 2 half brothers and an half-sister through my bio-dad. To me they are my siblings and they see me the same, but at times we both refer to the fact that we are half-siblings. (After all it's a fact we have the same bio-Dad, just NOT the same bio-Mom). I then have 2 step-sisters that I see as sisters, and my kids call Aunt so-and-so, but again when referring to the family dynamics we (I and them) will say step-sister.
This labels have no barring on how I feel about them or how they feel about me. They help explain our relationship and how we are truly related...which is what the OP was seeking to do, after all peoples responses may have been different if she said my brother, people would have auto assume they had the same bio-Mom AND bio-Dad.
