This is a wonderful story. I can relate to it fully. Our family was broken up
when my mother died when I was 1 yr. old. Myself and two other siblings were
adopted into three different families. There were two older brothers also that
remained with our maternal grandmother but we didn't know where they were.
Our father also disappeared completely shortly after our mother's natural
death and we haven't been able to locate him. When I was 28 yrs, old I
begain searching for my siblings and the two older brothers. Found them plus
aunts and uncles. We were all happy at our reunions. At age 68 now I doubt that
I'll ever find our father in this life. I understand this young lady's
longing to find out her family history. This will help to fill her longings to
know her beginnings, longings that only adopted children can truly understand.
When I saw her photo, I thought this was a story about the cute Russian spy who
was kicked out of the country.. She looks like her..
Alex Haley refers to the "hunger, marrow-deep." Congratulations on
beginning to satisfy that hunger. May you feast only on the positive and enjoy
the fullness of perspective this wonderful finding brings to you.
This story stirs many hearts. I know that it struck a familiar chord with
Stephen Kent Ehat. I've personally heard his inspiring story.Douglas
@cjb - what are you KGB?Good story to read and glad she has found
her biological mother.
I am so excited for you! My husband and I have been part of 3 different adoption
reunions. It is a wonderful moment to see your smile or laugh reflected in
another person you've never known. I celebrate for you and am so thankful
you were met with open arms on the other side of your continued journey.
Every adoptee wants to know their history, some more or less than others. It is
normal. Adoptees, adopted parents and first parents have been indoctrinated by
the "authorities" to believe adoptees should not desire to know about
their origins. The public needs to be educated to the truth. All the love in
the world from adopted parents will not negate the inner need for information
and the need to see those who look like him/her. Every time an adoptee finds
his/her first parents, the public has the opportunity to learn more about the
adoption industry and the truth about sealed records.
What a wonderful story! Although it seems to really underscore the point of how
dramatically social media is changing our world. Things like this never happened
when everyone was on myspace.
