Two Wisconsin truckers have discovered that a professional relationship is not the only thing they share: they’re actually father and son.
Nathan Boos has always known that he was adopted, but never asked his adoptive parents who his birth parents were.
According to Eyewitness News, Boos’ adoptive mother was looking at his Facebook one day, and happened to notice that Nathan was friends with his birth father, Robert Degaro. Shocked, she brought it to Boos’ attention. Only then did they realize the most ironic piece of the puzzle: Degaro and Boos have been co-workers for two years as CDL drivers at the same trucking firm.
“It’s still kind of a shock, and there are days I’m not sure exactly what to say or how to act. I mean, he is my son, but we didn’t have that father-son relationship growing up. And then we became working partners before we knew who we really were,” says Degaro told Eyewitness News.
“We’re just taking one day at a time, one mile at a time as we say,” says Boos.
“Back then I wasn’t much of a dad,” Degaro stated. According to Daily Mail, Degaro didn’t have much of a say when Boos’ birth mother gave him up for adoption. “His biological mom had chosen the adoptive parents because they were somewhat related — distant cousins, I believe. But I didn’t know that,” Degaro said.
