A Joyful Reunion, Thanks to My Search Angel

I first found out I was adopted at the age of 4 when my parents gave me a book to read about adoption. They both sat with me as I read it and gave answers to the questions they could. My li... [more]

to hold that bundle of life,to count toes, fingers, also understand great pain,frustration,helplessness,faer, anger....See i had a baby boy. He is 10 yrs old now. So you know that i know now exactly why you decided not to keep me. I dont blame you. Not that id give up on my son or change one single thing about the past ten yrs,except for that one thing that we must cope with. No i cant blame you for being afraid of having to go thru all over again what you had to thru and deal with with my brother. I totally understand. No one is to blame. Not even God he has his reasons for even this. And we have to deal with the lessons trials heartbreak that we for some reason must deal with. Its ok. I get it. I love my baby so i know hat must have been the hardest decision ever. I hope they find a cure soon!!!!! #1

this isnt really a comment as such its more of an open note to my birth mother. Im not mad or upset in way what-so-ever,with her. With the state/county laws that say the records are sealed and im not allowed even non-identifying medical information. Not even Genetic medical info when i was pregnant. Im still not mad exactly, no i have very mixed emotions to be honest. See i only have one child,when i was 33. I was born in nkc on aug of 69. The info iwas given was that i had a brother and a sister, my b-mom was older,a secretay and either going thru or just recently divorced. I wonder about that last part...maybe true or maybe an excuse to hide the truth. Wich i pondered what that truth might be for years. What the reasons for putting me up for adoption might be. But since i had my son im fairly certain, almost positive that i know what that reason is now. Like i said im not mad,not at all. You, my b-mom, had two before me, you know as i do what a simple yet wonderful,satiafying joy it #2

If you have not taken a DNA test yet to increase your chances of finding your loved one, I suggest you take one now. You may become matched with the person you're searching or matched with a genetic relative who can help. Plus, enjoy learning about your ancestry and helping others! (I suggest testing with FTDNA, 23andme or Ancestry)... Hope we All find our person, if not through Love, Adoptee searching for biological mom 20 yrs. (Born Oct. 1972 in Southern Ca) #3
