  • Thoughts = Hi. I am an adoptee and also a birth mother involved in one of the first open adoptions in the USA. I searched for and located my birth family but not before I had successfully assisted a bunch of people with their Arizona searches back in the early 80's. I didn't find my birth mother until 1991. I have a non-profit search assistance group called Orphan Voyage of Alabama Inc. We have pro-Phone CD sets going back for about 6 years and I have a collection of old Alabama Coles directorys here in the office. OVAL does not conduct searches we meraly help direct motivated searchers in their own quests for truth. I am currently working from home as a PI and I still do adoption searches. I don't work free anymore though because I also do insurance claims work background checks and a lot of other PI related stuff that I need to spend time on to grow my business. On adoption cases I charge $25 per hour. My regular PI rate is $35 per hour. I have honestly lost track of my reunions but I believe thy number in the thousands. I have a four drawer filing cabnet full of solved cases. No two alike. I have one "open" case I am working on and you may or may not believe this but I have only 2 unsolved cases. I just finished a sibling reunion that was over 50 years old. I would love to network with you. I will add a link to my adoption resources page soon. The page is under heavy construction at present. In the meantime I invite you to chek out ACME Information's site which has a few pages dedicated to adoption searches. I also have a downloadable "motion to Open" form there. http://iquest.com/~leahwes/ACMEInf.htm Leah

  • Thoughts = Dear Mom &/or Dad If you're out there somewhere I'd sure like to meet you someday. Your little girl (named Judy at birth) was born 8/12/48 somewhere in Michigan I'm told. Mom you left me with your sister to follow Dad who was a musician. Some months later at the age of 6 months I was adopted by a family in Chicago Ill. It would sure make my life complete to know who I am and where I come from. I want you to know I understand that you did what you had to do at that time. I would like to have an opportunity to get to know you now.

  • Thoughts = I am a 32 year old adoptee looking for my bs. I found my bparents in 1983 but did not know of my bs until 10/96. My bm was very sick and her sister told me that I have a sister that is a year or two younger than me. My bf does not know anything about her. He was told by my bm that I had died at birth. My bm passed away in Nov. so I feel like this is going to be a very big challenge which I hope God will help me to conquer. She was born in KC not sure whether Kansas or Missouri between 8/65-late 66. I am hoping that someone can help me with this as I can't ask my bf as he doesn't know. It was very hard on him to learn that I was still alive and I want him to continue to have the faith in my mother as when she was alive. She had some emotional problems which resulted in the death of an older half brother at 2 yrs. old. Any help would be appreciated. God Bless everyone and may your dreams come true.

Birth was in Denver Colorado Booth Memorial Hospital. Not a day has gone past that I haven't given thought to my first son and hope his life has been so much more than what I would have been able to provide as an unwed mother in the 60s. I was promised that the adoptive parents would be able to provide for him in many ways I wouldn't have been able and already had the funds for his college education. I thank them for providing the home and love he deserved. I have registered at this site in the hopes that if he ever wants to be reunited with birthmother his search will be made easier.

  • Thoughts = I am searching for any information available about my 2 half-sisters last name (maiden) HAMMACHER or HAMAKER or HAMMAKER -- I can only recall the first name of Valerie Ann (can't remember her sister's name). Their father's name is/was GEORGE. Their/my mother had a severe nervous breakdown back in the '40s when the girls were very young (possibly 5 and 6...) and the girls were to be taken care of by their/my grandmother. Apparently my mother and their father George were divorced or in the process probably causing the mental breakdown - I just don't know for sure. The story goes that my grandmother was unable to keep the children and arranged to have their father take custody of them while my mother was still hospitalized. From what I've been told their father would only take them under the condition that the girls were told that their mother was dead and my mother was never to see them again. He apparently moved the girls from Oklahoma City to somewhere back east. My mother never saw them again. For all they know they believe their mother is dead. This situation remained a long time secret in our family - and I could never understand why my mother despised her mother so much - making it very difficult for me have a close relationship with both of them. Before my grandmother died a couple of years ago she finally told me her side of the story as described above. My mother won't say anything else about the situation except lay blame on my grandmother for what she did. She never forgave her mother and made my life miserable for wanting to love my grandmother. Yet my heart aches for my mother and the two girls that she lost almost 50 years ago. What also concerns me is the mental/medical condition of these other girls. My sister 5 years older than me was diagnosed as severely manic depressive more than 10 years ago (and who has since disappeared on her own wanting). My grandmother's cousin committed suicide more than 40 years ago one of my cousins died of juvenile arthritis at the age of 18 and my mother had the mental breakdown 50 years ago. Every day I thank the Lord for my sanity and health but not a day goes by when I don't think of Valerie Ann and her sister. Were they possible adopted by another family or left believing their mother died? How does one find out more with so little information. My mother does not want to search for the girls for fear of upsetting their lives and doesn't want me to bring the subject up anymore now that her mother has died. Does my mother own the right to control this situation? Do I not have any rights to knowing my half sisters? I'd appreciate any thoughts from those who've been down this road before. Please contact me at antsmom@earthlink.net. Thank you so much......

  • Thoughts = It’s time we stop this country’s hypocritical ideas on adoptions. I believe that the people that have designed these laws that prevent us from finding our roots are described as such; They have grown up in homes with thier same parents from birth. They have had the luxary to sit across the table with thier brother and sisters. They’ve gone through life with thier families there for them, thier birth families. They know who thier Grandparents are, where they came from before coming to this country, they know thier heritage.. Something that we Adoptee’s know nothing about, because it’s been held from us by these same people because as they say, "it’s in thier best interest"
  • It’s time we stop these thoughts of going down through the streets of life wondering if that person that we just passed is a brother, a stister, or even your mother and father. They need to become aware of the loneliness that we feel each and every day of our lives because we don’t know who we really are.

    Some believe that the strongest bond in life is the one that a mother feels for her child, does’nt that apply to a child for his or mother also? It was taken from us as children for whatever reasons, but the bond is still there. Those of you who’ve never had that taken from you, "treasure it!!"

    Our’s is not a search for a rich relative in hopes of the easy way out, nor do we look for a different life to live. Our "pot of gold" in life is our heritage, our family tree. Not the family tree that the state has given us, the one that we’re insisted upon believing is the "only" one we have becuase of the laws of this country.

    We’re not searching out of hate for what has happened. That is the past and I believe that the majority of us don’t care. We’re not giving up the families that took us in as children, we admire them for thier love and unselfishness that they’ve shown us over the years. We just want what they have never been able to provide, we want to fill the hole that left in our lives and in our hearts when we watched our brothers and sisters being taken out of our lives, as were our parents for whatever reason. We want our heritages back, we want what every person on this planet has the right to, " the right to know ".

    In this day of age, we know when a politician is sleeping with someone other than his wife, we know when an actor or actress is on drugs or doing something out of the ordinary. It’s supposed to be an age of information as everyone is saying. But we go through life with what society believes is our dark little secrets, and aren’t allowed this information that we seek, which to me is less damaging than the knowledge of the leaders of this country not setting a good moral example to the nation.

    Why do they feel that they need to look out for our best interests? Are’nt we old enough to look out for them ourselves? Should’nt we have the same rights as they do when it comes to family?

    Why does it sound so double standard when a politician runnig for office says in his campaign speech,"the family legacy is the strength of this country". How is our legacy the strength of this country when we’re being denied any knowledge of it? What are we to tell our children when they sit upon our knees and ask, "daddy, what was Grandpa and Grandma like? Where did they come from? Who did I get my brown hair from? And so on." We can’t really answer these questions, can we? All we get to say is, "I’m sorry honey, but I don’t know, I was taken from my family when I was young". Then as all children ask, "why?"

    It’s time to change these double standards, these beliefs of the people that in no way could possibly undersatand how we feel. Of these people I ask you this, Suppose one morning you wake up and your family is no longer there, you have no proof that they ever were except in your heart. You know you had parents and maybe even a brother or sister, you know you did! You also know that there are places that have this information but when asked, they tell you, " we can’t let you have that information because it’s in your best interests". You’re now told that you have to go through life with this hole in it, this emptiness and these unanswered questions. Sit and ponder this for awhile.

    Do you think that we were too young to know? Does your baby girl at the age of 1 know when you’ve taken her favorite Teddy bear away from her and given her another stuffed animal? Does she sleep well that night? We knew and we still remember in our hearts just like she knows.

    This is not a letter of hate, nor is it thoughts of anger. It’s meant to be an awakening to those who do not know what it’s like going through life with what society calls our "dark secret". I hope in after reading this, that some will support our efforts in trying to change these laws that deny us the "Right to know", we are people with families too, aren’t we. And for those of you like me, or the parents of these children that you had to give up for whatever reason, if it wouldn’t disrupt your lives, please register with a search agency because we are looking.

  • Thoughts = I was born on August 9th 1956 in San Francisco California. My birth father's name was Peter Galden. My birth mother 's name is unknown. From the information I've gotten over the years I had one older brother whose adoption was handled by Catholic Charities in San Francisco. He was 5-yrs old when he arrived at that agency he was adopted within 2-yrs and had problems adjusting at first but overcame the change. I was approx. 6-months to a year old when we were all taken from our parents by the Youth Guidance Center in the area. For some reason unknown My brother went through the private agency he was the oldest of 4. Myself and the remaining 2 had our adoptions handled by the state our records presantly sit behind closed cabinets in the Sacramento Dept. of Social Services. I have learned recently that there was a sister of ours that has adoption records With Los Angeles Dept. of Social Services they have told me that she would be about 31-yrs old at this time ! but they did not have her file in front of them so the age may be wrong. Our father is of Spanish-Mexican decent and our mother is of German decnt. Stories go that after we were taken from them 2 years later they had signed the consent form giving our futures to the state. I don't care what the reasons were for this I just want to know my birth family or at least who they were. As I was growing up I was told that my mother had moved to Albaquerque then to Florida but this information is 20-yrs old and unreliable. My father Peter< had continued to come and visit me for about 6-months after my placement in my new home which means alot to me. If anyone feels that this information rings a bell you may E-mail at Sardonakus@msn.com. No fools need apply it's been a long search since I was born in 1956 so try to be considerate in us that search.. thank you and best of luck to all who search.........

  • Thoughts = This is in regards to the Washington DC 1966 adoption that I had registered with the both of you last week. Thanks for the prompt reply E... it was a match! Em... knew more about her natural parents through a "leak" at her adoption agency but never acted on what she knew. Although I was a little off on her estimated birth date everything else she knows matches verbatim. We have talked for many hours over the past two days and my father who is a bit dumbfounded is gaining the courage to call the daughter he never knew. I have been able to locate her mother L... S... but was not poing to contact her until my other avenues were exhausted. So Em... now has the ability to contact her mother if she likes. She is 30 years old and now has four half-brothers who are ages 30 29 27 and 27. The first three are her father's and the last is what I have learned about her mother. How's that for a bunch of kids in a three-year time span? Thanks for your help! I just thought it would make your day to get another success story!

He was very lucky to have been adopted by a great family. MY friends name is STUART BROWN he was born 5/20/70 in Denver Colorado. He is now 26 and curious.

His wife was unable to have children (they are both now deceased). Tom flew a physician to attend a Navy nurse who gave birth to to a son. She was not married to the father and gave the child to the physician to put up for adoption. The physician gave the child to Tom! and he and his wife raised him. The child is now residing in Washington State and is close to 50 years old. I am giving this information in case the natural mother or any siblings are looking for him.

  • Thoughts = I have been searching off and on since 1981 it has been very frustrating. My adoptive mother was very supportive bef ore I turned 18 then she has been very hostile. I know deep down inside I would like to meet at least someone from my birth family if not my mother and father. But then again I also know that I am the type of person who would not want to invade someone's life or cause great upset. So whatever I can get I will settle for. In addition to a non-helpful adoptive mother I have very little information to go on. I was born in Cincinnati Ohio on March 16 1955 there is no place of birth listed. I had a heart problem at birth (PDA) which led to many health problems. I have dark brown hair and brown eyes 5'6" slender build.

Money is also tight so I can not take many avenues offered out there. I simply want my birth parent(s) or other family members to know that I am alive and well and I have 4 beautiful children. I seek only to give myself and my children their rightful heritage knowledge of their past ethnic origins and a complete medical history - any other information or contact would be great but not ever necessary. I want them to know that I love them and understand their decision and have no anger or hostility toward them. My life is wonderful and I hav!e had many wonderful opportunities and memories.

I have spent a lot of time and money with little results.

I decided to see what I could myself. I got on the phone to the people who handled the adoption ( no help there) and to the people who had the hospital records where she was born. It has since been closed. I talked to the right person who gave me some information on the mother. It wasn't much but it was enough that I have been able to locate her mother. I took her to visit last week and it was the most incredible thing I have ever witnessed.

From what I have read here and seen from others' responses it appears to be a very good thing that you folks are doing. Being a birthmother who just wants her information out there just in case I feel like this is a great tool you are providing as it isn't twisting anyone's arm to get into it. So it's all of free will to even look in here or any of the many other search areas available. Whatever my own personal outcome might be I'm sure there are by far more happy endings than otherwise.

  • Thoughts = I am helping my son look for his birthmom and sister. He was born in Carmel CA on 12/01/71 and was adopted through the state of California adoption agency. The information I have said his birthmom was 19 years old at the time of his birth and that she had a daughter approximately 2 years old at that time. The birthmother and father were not married and not much information was given on the birthfather except that his last name indicated he may have been of Scandinavian background. The birthmom was approximately 4'10" tall. I think I was also told the birthmom was English Irish Indian and possibly German background. My son was very blonde and had bright blue eyes. We were told that his older sister was very blonde also as a two year old. Not sure if his sister is a full or half-sister. Would love to locate birthmom/dad/ sister.

  • Thoughts = My name is David. I am 22 years old and would very much like to meet my birth parents. I have never seen them because I went into foster care when I was between 4 and 6 months old. I was adopted in FL by the Sheppard family in Ft Walton Beach FL in about 1978. My birth name is David Alan Brauner. I was born on June 4th 1974. My father may have been millitary Air Force but I'm not sure I was told when I was little. I just recently completed a four year tour in the Army Millitary intelligence corps where I attained the rank of sergeant in less than three years. I hold a top secret security clearance so I think it's safe to say I have a good back ground and am of good moral character. I just want to say "Hi I'm alive and I'd like to meet ya. I'm not upset or bitter I just want to know where I came from."

  • Thoughts = I'm posting this message in behalf of my friend Pam Sullivan. This morning she received a call from a search agency saying that they had found her birth mother. Pam has been looking for 11 years. In that time she has registered with numerous free and moderately priced search services. Finally she resorted to hiring the agency that made the find and has charged $2 900 for doing so. Pam has been able to put together a little over a thousand dollars towards the fee but still needs approximately $1 900 more. The agency can't/won't release information about her birth mother until the fee has been paid in full. I asked Pam's permission to send this note to all of you. Searching can be an expensive process but if any of you would like to contribute towards the balance due on Pam's search fee I'm sure she would be deeply appreciative.

  • Thoughts = Hi David,
  • I don't know if Cathy wrote you about this or not but I sure am. Cathy put a notice in your registry awhile back. Since I'm a volunteer searcher in VA I decided to write her to see if she needed any help. That was on April 8th. Cathy called me on April 11th (friday night). On Saturday April 12th I drove to the state library and did some research for her and others. The very first city directory I pick up had her birth mothers name listed. :-)

    I had NO idea which city directory to check but knew it was a small rural town in VA. BLACKSTONE, VA was a HIT. By 3:00pm the next day (Sunday) my husband and I had found Cathys sister. And to think my husband actually knows this entire family. Sadly though her bmom had passed away in 1972. So hubby and I went to talk to sister in person. We slowly asked her some questions about her and her mothers past. Then all of a sudden she yelled out "my sister, my sister". Well - I got shivers then. She DID know about Cathy. And too was wanting to find her.

    Last night I witnessed their reunion. BEAUTIFUL! Cathy flew to VA to meet her family. She'll be here for about a week. And it's packed with all kinds of family, pictures, places and alot of history.

    I want to personally thank you David for this registry. Without it, Cathy wouldn't be here meeting her family AND ME :-).

    Keep the registry going David - it's wonderful.

  • Thoughts = LOOKING FOR BIRTH PARENTS & FAMILY - CHICAGO 1950. I am helping my husband search for his birth parents. This has b een a very well kept secret within his family his whole life and came to a head at his father's death in Sept. 1996. His mother refuses to share any infornation she has so we are piecing together what little we know or suspect may be true. The registered birth certificate names his (adoptive) parents as Harry D. & Alice Jacobson Carlson Chicago IL having a male child named Daniel Harry Carlson 04/09/50 3:09 p.m. We are fairly sure that this is not my husband's birth name. There is no hospital listed only a doctor Herbert L. Michel MD 9204 Commercise (Commercial) Chicago. We both believe that the birth parents are of Scandanavian descent that they were actively involved in the Salvation Army for many years and may be relatives or were friends of Faulke Nelson of Chicago.

  • Thoughts = Dear David,
  • I'm not sure if you remember me...we talked on the phone about a year ago. Wendy and I are born within several weeks of one another. You were able to send me several names from your database. One turned out to be the name of my birth mother. At the time, I only had her maiden name. I searched for several months via internet. I was unsuccessful, but not discouraged. I sat on the information for an entire year.

    Two months ago, I received an email from someone trying to collect letters for Mother's Day. I didn't send a letter, but I did register onto your website. Through my registration, I was contacted by a woman in San Diego named Jan Bowyer. She had a database of Texas Driver's records. I emailed her my information, and she was able to produce a match. We were able to find her married name through her maiden name. Jan gave me here current address, phone number, and birth day.

    We have since been in contact, are meeting each other in May, and have a wonderful story to share. It couldn't have been more perfect. She was so responsive. I'm sure you hear stories like this all the time, but I just wanted to thank you for your help and all that you are doing for open records and adoptions.

    I'm sure that you are a very busy man, but if you would ever like to hear a wonderful story, call me and I'll tell you mine. We could meet for coffee or something like that. I am planning on writing the story this summer. "Devine intervention" played such a role in this encounter. I just have to share it with others.

    Thanks for helping to open up this door!

  • Thoughts = Looking for daughter born 6/12/71 in Milwaukee Wis.. at St. Mary's hospital. Adopted in Dupage county Illnois. I was told later she was born with an 'unformed hip' and wore a brace the first year. The adoptive mother may have been a nurse. The adoption was private thru an attorney named Norman Shine in downtown Chicago. This is all that he did and kept a photo album of mothers who gave away their children. This may be of help to other searchers. My family has medical problems that she should be aware of. If this is you I am at DDble@aol.com.

My luggage had been checked in but it had taken 3 "trys" to pass through the [metal detector]. I didn't know that the [foil] liner of my cigarette pack would be detected. Why? The detector never did this before!! I forgot what my father-in-law had told me it happened to him once with his "chewing tobacco" pouch. I was very nervous. My feet wouldn't stay still. I couldn't keep from pacing. My wife Margee told me: "don't worry everything will be OK". She knows when I'm nervous or uncomfortable becaus!e I can't keep still but thoughts of touching my Mother for the first time in over 49 years just kept going around-and-around in my head.

  • Thoughts = I am searching for my grandmother last name LOIJA. Since this name is very uncommon I thought it would be easy to find her. Not true. Anyway she gave birth to my father on October 2 1931 in New York City. She was of Finnish descent and the father was of Irish descent. He could have possibly been a doctor. The Spence Alumnae Society handled the adoption. It was finalized in July 1932 in Cold Spring Putnam County New York. My father's name at birth was PAUL LOIJA. It is my prayer that I will find our family ties.

  • Thoughts = Hi...I am looking for my biological brother who was given up for adoption. I am 29 years old and just found out in January 97 that I have a biological brother. The information that I know is that he was born in November(?) 1966 and that the adoption was handled through Catholic Charities of St. Vincent DePaul in Chicago IL. I know the names of our birth parents and his birth name. I know also that I am his only biological sibling. I would have more information but I do not have contact with our biological parents. The only information that I will give about his name is that he was given the birth name of Joseph Julius. My name is Karen and if anybody knows who I am inquiring about please let him know that he has a sister that would like to know him. I don't believe he knows I exist.

  • Thoughts = I am a 16 year old female my mother is 42 and when she was my age she gave my half sister Sandy (or Sandra) up for adoption. I have a 22 year old full brother and we were not told of our sister untill were each about 12. I understand that my mother was a confused and scared teenager that only wanted to get out of the bad neighborhood she was raised in and knew she could not give herself and her child a better life. So she went to St. Ann's in Los Angeles and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl which she gave up for adoption. She only left her daughter with a single gold medallion with a saint on it. But to this day she doesn't go a day without wondering what her first child is like. I know my mother loves my sister and I know that she did what she did to give her child a better life. Last Mother's day I bought her a gift that she has been wanting for a long time a mother's ring with the birthstone's for the months of December (my brother's) March ! (mine
