Heartened

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.

  4. wow! WOW! WOOOOO HOOOOO!

    (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.
