Meeting My daughter for the first time

New Member Registered

I am not sure if this is where i should have posted this, but i didnt find any where else. I just recently gained knowledge of having a daughter the age of 13. Im excited and want to know who she is and meet her. But i am not sure how to approach. I do not know if she knows about me or what she has been told. I am still trying to get alot of information. What is the best way to approach this? Some barriers that are more obvious would be a language barrier for one. She was raised in mexico and i am doubtful that she was ever taught english. Another barrier would be bringing her to the US because i know they didnt do a Certificate of birth abroad to get her citizenship and since shes only 13 i doubt she has a passport or visa. But besides those things, is this the best time to contact her? Should i wait? I really want to meet her. Another issue is that i am in the Army and i will be leaving to go to South Korea early next year. I would really like to meet her by then cause i wont return for atleast 2 years. Would a 13 year old girl want to meet her biological father? Would this be to much to handle with all the hormonal changes she could be going through now at that age? In my mind my expectations are to have a great reunion with hugs and fun, getting her citizenship instated and going to korea together. Please give any advice. THank you.
