This Is My
In January 2000 my
mother had passed away. December 2000 I was going through her
papers she had in a warehouse and I found a clipping where it
said, they had gotten a baby boy from the hospital steps. This
made me wonder, were we adopted? So I called a family member and
asked them if I was adopted.
The reply I got was all three of us were adopted and everyone
thought we knew. I learned at the age 48 that I was adopted,
from then on my life has been turn upside down. I really didn't
want to believed it, then I made up my mind I would call other
relatives and see what they could tell me. What I found out, was
everyone thought we knew the secret and they did confirm, that
"yes" we were adopted.
My relatives asked me what I was going to do, I told them I was
going to try and find my birth family, there were questions I
needed answers for, with my adopted parents deceased I can't
asked them so I need to search to see what answers I can get. I
have wonder if someone was looking for me. Maybe I have
siblings, what about Medical History that is important. I
have been in good health so far, but one never knows.
Relatives helped with what information they had. The Internet
provided me with more. I did find out in 2003 my birth
mother was deceased, and I was told I had a aunt, so I called my
aunt and then she told me about another aunt, this aunt in
Wilson N.C. told me I had three other sibling that were given up
for adoption in N.C. I telephoned a brother, only to find out he
didn't know about me. I found out I was the youngest and I was a
big suprise to him. Now, together, we are a family searching for
two more siblings, with hopes to find them soon.
