  • I think the saddest thing was being denied access to their adoption records and that those sealed records delayed their reunion for decades. I'm thankful for ancestry.com having information that led to their reunion. It also tells me that older siblings never forget, and that the babies are not told of the siblings. That happened 80 years ago, but some things are similar even today. That desire to know where siblings are, what happened to them? Happy ending, way too late.

  • No not really. It kind of fills me with dispair and sadness. I'm happy for the reunitees though.

  • I can only hope that when my daughters meet face to face again in adulthood, they are young adults. I would help the daughter I am raising in any way I can to find her baby sis, even if the adoptive parents don't want them to know one another. They can kick rocks. If she wants a relationship, they have no say.
