The whole kit & doodle!

Damn those pins and needles

I found them.

Yes, you read that right. I found them. Last night, middle of the night, through sheer happenstance and coincidence, I found them. I found her, her new husband, her ex-husband and all her kids. It even looks like she had a baby boy about a year and a half after I was born with her new husband. Cool, a baby brother!

There are six older siblings. So if her new husband’s son is also hers, she had 8 kids, total. I think two of them died at birth or shortly thereafter. I can’t find any record of them after they were born, anywhere.

I have a phone number for one of my sisters. I’ve tried it a few times but only gotten an answering machine. I’ll keep calling until I get a real person and then try to get my mother’s phone number from her.

In the meantime, I’m sitting here on pins and needles. God, this is scary.

    (me again)

    i sincerely hope you find what you are looking for, what you NEED.

    i remember how hard it was between finding and contact. i was sooo impatient. i knew that we were a match, but it took the website host several days to contact her to verify the match.

    after that . . . . well. try to be patient with each other. as a first mom, it was very hard to try to be upbeat as i realized all that i’d lost, which could never be replaced. i don’t think i ever truly grieved for my daughter until we were in reunion. now i just try to go forward, backward isn’t a good place.
