My mail server has been down most of the day -- so it is too late to telephone now. I found my brother and my mother. Don't have any idea what reaction there will be.

  • Thoughts = I am an adoptee interested in finding my biological mother. I was born 8/18/67 in Waukesha Wisconsin. I now have a son and daughter of my own and would like to share the joy with my biological family. I was adopted through Children's Service Society of Wisconsin and have received medical backgrounds and nationality backgrounds on my biological parents but would like to know more. My adoptive parents are wonderful and have given me more than I could ever want but there is an emptiness that I need to fill. My biological parents were in their teens when I was born and if they are not willing to meet with me maybe they could give me a little bit more of a background or possibly someone in the family would be willing to meet with me.

  • Thoughts = Thank you for your response and self-help guide. The child in question was born in N.M. and the birth mother was told the child was adopted by a family in Texas. Would the baby's birth have to be registered in N.M.? or would that be waived in order to have it registered in Texas? the local attorney advised my friend that now 25 years later he doesn't remember anything and says he has no records. My friend was not given the name of the adopting parents only that the adoptive father was an attorney in Texas.

  • Thoughts = On December 12 1978 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at "Duncan Memorial Hospital"("The Edna Gladney Home")in Ft. Worth TX. It was the most painful experience in my life and I suffered for many years with grief over the loss of my beautiful child. At the time I was 18 years old and knew that there was no possible way that I could give her the kind of life she deserved so I gave her what I truly believed was a gift. My deepest hope is that we will one day meet again and that I can hold her in my arms and tell her how much I love her. Before I signed the adoption papers they gave me the opportunity to hold the precious child who would soon be taken from me. The memory will never fade. It's still fresh in my mind as if it were yesterday. She was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. After years of waiting the time is getting closer...she'll be 18 yrs. old this year and able to register with Gladney if she chooses to...and I hope and pray that she will.

To this day he is not aware that I exist. The terrible emptiness that I feel is at times debilitating. I have a borrowed past a borrowed lineage and of who I am originally is not within my grasp due to bureaucratic secrets and redtape. I love my Mum who raised me and I wouldn't trade her for all the world but I still have a 25 year void I'd like to fill. I hit a brick wall at every corner I turn and I want this emptiness to be filled by meeting either my birth mother or brother.

  • Thoughts = Birth parents who sign contracts not to make contact with the adoptee and those who make other agreements should not pursue a search withou knowing that the adoptee has made the first move (i.e. got on a list petitioned a court.) Birth parents who initiate contact run the risk of destroying the family of the adoptee and shattering the adoptees self-identity. It is a true invasion for an adoptee who made NO agreements about confidentiality to be confronted by the birth parent who made either some agreement or a tacit agreement to maintain confidentiality. No happy solutions can be made when a birth parent decides to initate contact at the expense of the privacy and stability of a happy family please take heed continue to look on lists for a potential match but do not initiate contact with an adoptee unless there is a life or death matter.

  • Thoughts = Dear David I need some assistance & advice! I was given after 28 years some paperwork that was mis-sent to my ad optive parents. This paperwork had simply my birth mother's name (I know where I was born what hospital etc.) including my birth name. (Odd?) At any rate I searched "whitepages" on the net and believe I may have found my birth mother. I am interested at the least to get information from her e.g. family history birth father's name etc. I contacted the agency that handled the adoption and they have yet to respond to my calls. I even left a detailed message with the social worker informing her that I had this newly updated info. I filled out forms 2 years ago that would initiate a search via the agency but to no avail. Should I persue what I consider to be "proper" avenues? Or do I call up my birth mother cold turkey - and say "Gee guess what? Does 4-21-68 ring a bell?" I really could use some advice. Thanks in advance.

  • Thoughts = I am a female adoptee in search of my b-mother not to destroy her life but to bring a connection in mine. I was bo rn on 12/3/66 ( time I do not know but was in PM ) at Beyer Hospital in Ypsilanti Michigan by Dr. Lyle Elliott. Her name is Kay Dixon ( single at the time )and was 19 years old. Adopted mother is being very supportive and says that b-mother may have been from Garden City MI and looks like me fair skin and brown hair. Maternal grandfather had lost either a leg or arm in the military. I am beginning my search because as I near my 30th birthday I am ready to start a family but I can't seem to do that until I have some linkage to my own past. I don't quite know where to continue my path. I am hoping that Kay is like me and wants me to find her. I could really use some guidance if anyone can help me I would really appreciate it. Thanks Barbara Bower

  • Thoughts = I am looking for my Niece born as Jean Marie Taylor...... BORN 6/29/70 in a Catholic Hospital in the BRONX NEW YORK. The adoption was handled by Catholic Charities. I don't want to interfere or cause pain or disruption to her life but if she is searching and longing for some answers I would be thrilled at the oppotunity to meet her and have her share in our lives as much as she wants to. My sister the birthmom has recently passed away and the only good thing I can think of about that is that she now finally gets to see the child she has missed and longed for for the last 26 years. And if I can ease any of my nieces emptiness or longing it would make me happy beyond measure. I saw her after her birth in the hospital and she was the most beautiful little baby girl and I have longed to see her again ever since. There are birth-cousins(10) aunts uncle and grandma and more. I pray for contact.

After I was born my birthmother had me sent to an adoption agency in Syracuse NY called "New Hope Family Services". I was told when I was very young that I was adopted and have been encouraged by my adoptive parents to find my birthmother. I'm 21 years old now and have longed to find my birthmother for a long time. I don't wish to intrude on her life I just simply want to fill the void that I've felt.

  • Thoughts = My name is Sam. I am looking for my birth mother. I was born 12/07/65 at 5:53 am at Riverside Methodist Hospital i n Columbus OH. Birthweight 8 lbs 7 oz 20 1/2" long. I was adopted through the Ohio Children's Society on 12/31/65 by Robert K. Barton and his wife Linda. They were killed in a plane crash when I was 5 months old on 4/6/66. After being returned to the adoption agency by the surviving family members I was then adopted a second time by a family in CT. I have been looking for 12 years for my birth mother with no success. I believe my birth mother's name may be Phyllis Turner. The adoption agency said she was 23 at the time of my birth. According to the agency she was a medical secretary of German English and Scotch descent. She had completed 12th grade and 2 years of college majoring in business administration. She liked the arts especially dancing taught dancing and loved reading about science. She had two sisters who were also medical se! cretaries and another sister in college and a younger brother in high school. She was 5'1" tall blue eyed medium brown hair a nd fair complexion. There was a great deal of controversy surrounding my adoption and the person who handled my case Francis D. Cady chose to be buried with my adoption records in her coffin. Therefore some of these details about my mother's identity may be inaccurate. If you think you know anything about my adoption PLEASE call me at 603-448-6829 Thank you so much!!!!

I'm not sure why I waited maybe not to hurt my mom and dad. I can never remember not knowing I was adopted; it was an integral part of my life from the very beginning. Now I find myself questioning so many things about where I came from and I'm not sure how I fee about that. A little disloyal perhaps but curious none the less. Recently found my birth name in the NYC birth index. Burst into tears right there in the research room. People thought I was crazy. Marie Kelly 02-29-68. Right there in front of me on that yellowed page -- the numbers matched and suddenly I had a new (or is it old?) name. I was scared and excited at the same time. Now what do I do? I've never really spoken to other adoptees about it -- a wonderful woman Laura e-mailed me when she saw my posting on birthquest. She has been an immeasurable source of information and comfort as I slowly plod through this mess called my ancestry. Found a professional searcher to give me some tips too. So many resources that I never knew about. It truly is an amazing process -- we'll see how it works itself out . . .

  • Thoughts = Here are a few pieces of information I have learned since I began my search. Note: I have heard or read these thing s and do not garauntee the accuracy. 4 out of 10 people are affected by adoption. 95% of birthmothers want to find their children. Female adoptees become interested in searching around age 12. Male adoptees become interested in searching around age 26. Adoptees fear hurting their adoptive parents by searching. Adults can have many relationships and not loose one to gain one. Many adoptees are angry about being "abandoned" and may have to work through this anger to move find peace and build good relationships. Reunions can be a rollercoaster ride sometimes good sometimes bad but always worth it (don't give up it can get better).

  • Thoughts = This is a GREAT web site. Thank you David for the quick e-mail reply. I can't tell you how good it made me feel. I a m a birthmother looking for my daughter I gave up for adoption. She was born "BABY REAY" on May 12th 1964. She was born in Chicago Il. at what was then the Frank Cunio Hosp. She was born around 7:30 p.m. She was taken to the Children's hosp. until she gained weighed 5 lbs. All I remember about the adopting parents is he was an attorney in his forty's. The adoption actually took place about a week to ten days after she was born. That would be about May 19 or 20. Thank you for being here!

Lyons Birthdate: 02-29-69 @5:31pm Place of Birth: Misericordia Hospital Bronx NY Place of Adpt: Westchester County NY Family & Children Services After doing some research best bets are that my b/mom was from Westchester and wentto the Bronx to have me.

  • Thoughts = I was an exchange student in Tubingen Germany in 1980 when I gave birth to a son. If he is seeking me I'd like to reach him before he turns 18 so he still has American citizenship privileges. Like many others I don't want to mess with his life unless he wants to reach me. I just want to be available for ... whatever. He has a brother and sister. It has not been possible to forget him. I held his slippery body when he was born and counted his toes. I kissed him and wished him luck. I have blonde hair and blue eyes but he may be darker. I can speak German.

Her mother kept her for 2-3 years then gave her up. They probably lived in Salisbury or Newburyport MA area. Birthmother was teenager at the time (?). Believes birthmothers name to be Savan (?). Birthmother may have worked as housekeeper in late 1950's. Hope someone can help me and my mom. Thanks.....

  • Thoughts = Would like information on my birth family. Honestly do not want to disrupt their lives but would like medical and nationality information. I was born on February 22 1956 in Chicago Illinois. Birth certificate #112-56-612815. Doctor: William Rurik 4800 Milwaukee Chicago Illinois. Adoptive parents: Herman William Waldsmith and Phyllis Mary Waldsmith. My name in adoption papers: Baby Girl Shapiro. Decree of Adoption signed on December 31 1956 Case No. A-7855. I was given up for adoption by Janice Shapiro my birth mother and her husband Morris Shapiro. I've been told this was a private adoption. The name of the law firm at the bottom of the paperwork is Golosinec & Jerrick 111 W. Washington St. Chicago 2 Illinois. I was not told I was adopted until I was 23 and it was quite a shock. I was told that my birth father was French and my maternal grandmother was Russian and that my grandmother stayed in touch with my adoptive parents after we moved to Phoenix Arizona until I was about 10. I honestly don't want to hurt anyone I would just like information. If members of my birth family would prefer not to meet that's fine; information about my background would be very nice. Thank you.

  • Thoughts = I am a female adoptee who is searching. I was born 12-05-59 in Danville IL (vermilion county). I want and need to f ind out about my adoption and my birthfamily. It is hard to go through life not really knowing where you started from. Isn`t it interesting that President Clinton is promoting adoption. I think that`s wonderful but he should also give some thought to all those potential adoptees who will be searching someday.

  • Thoughts = Thank-you for this data I identify with it being as I am beginning a journey through the maze of violations of my civil rights due to being an adopted child. Sealed documents are obstacles and are preventing me from my right to know about me . The quest continues I am on a path that has no end a journey not a destination with many new events to live through on the way. It is encouraging to find others like you that give me hope that somewhere along the trail I will find the answers that have been imprisoned sealed away hidden from the one that needs to know.

  • Thoughts = I am helping my wife search for her birthparents and who said the net was not good? Anyway most of what we know was from a letter from the private agency United Methodist Children's Home in Worthington Ohio and her "redone" birth cerificate. She was born November 29 1970 at University Hospital in Columbus Ohio at 2:44pm. Her mother was 19 years old had "bleach" blonde hair and stood 5'5" at 115 pounds. She was a high school graduate who majored in secretarial subjects and was employed as an assistant accountant at an insurance company. Her bgrandfather was a truck driver and Bgrandmother was a teacher's aide at school. My wife's father was 20 years old 5'8" tall with blonde hair and blue eyes. Both his parents were college graduates and he had one older brother. After he was notified of an impending draft he enlisted into the army for four years. We are told that they had gone steady for 2 1/2 years but agreed to separate for a while. What else we know is that she was given up for adoption a few days after her birth and probably lived in a foster family for a month before being adopted by a loving couple from Pittsburgh PA where she grew up. My wife does not want to destroy anyones lives but like the rest of you she needs to fill a huge void in her life. According to the courts of Ohio both of her birth parents are still alive. She would most grateful for any information or contact with any birth relatives and to be truthful she wants some kind of relationship although she is very understanding of not interfering in her birth families lives. Ohh extra info..the doctors name was Gerald Steiner. Please if you have any info or maybe just remember something anything please contact us at jpntl@worldnet.att.net

  • Thoughts = I would like to add the following information to my earlier message concerning my search for the mother of Sharon Ly nn Harris. Sharon Harris was adopted by Ernest Clarence Bennett and Mary Lambert Bennett. Her adopted name is Desiree'Bennett.Desiree`s Bitrh certificate # is 143180. Desiree' has not asked her adopted parents for help in her search for her birth mother because she does not want to offend them.I have been told Robin Lee Harris social security # is 438-60-7632 but I have no way of verifying this.I have also been told Robin Harris lived at 4209 St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans LA. at the time of Sharon Harris`s birth but I can not confirm this. The seminary Robin Harris attended before Sharon`s birth is The White Field Theological Seminary in Lakeland FL. Sharon`s father was never notified of her birth. All we know about him is that he had curly black hair and was a salesman with a grade school education. The remainding information I have on Robin Harri! s is this at the time of Sharon`s birth she was 5'6" had hazel eyes brown hair and medium complexion with average intelligence. Her grandfather was an ordained minister and later divorced Sharon`s grandmother. Robin Harris had four other siblings who upon graduating left home and broke contact with family. Robin left New Orleans and returned to Florida but returned to New Orleans to help take care of her mother who was ill. With all of this information we still have not found Sharon`s mom. I hope you can help us. Thanks !!! lsuandi@premier.net
