Big news today, but not ready to share with the real world...

I was adopted as a baby, and have always been interested in finding my birth parents.  Once a year or so I poke around the internet, but stopped really looking hard about 8 years ago. It just did not seem likely that I would ever find anything with the limited info I have. 

But today I did. 

Just like 'that' in about 30 minutes of looking online, on websites ive spent 100s of hours looking at in the past, today they just jumped out at me. 

My birth father has been dead for several years, I found a picture of his grave marker, but none of him.  He died on the same day as my real dad (the one who raised me), but 5 years later. 

My mom is in Florida. Im not sure about contacting her.  

Lots to think about today.

I was adopted as an older child (foster care at 7 adopted at 12) but I went to find my father as soon as I was 18. It took months but he was located. 

It's awesome you were able to find the info! I've seen this end both ways. Give it a lot of thought and make sure you let us help you during your process.. Aka keep us posted :)
