I got an email from the new search person at the agency and there has been contact.My son looked for me about 20 years ago.They apparently set up multiple files but didn't bother to check them ...this is from the search person  .$#*($@%&^$$@) agency didn't give a crap about either the adoptee or me.They had the money from his parents and I wasn't of any good.They tout being Christian ummmm nope.


Any way they need some forms filled out and my TDL.I was scanning but she told me they can't make or attempt contact till Mon .so AM overnighting in the morn.Oh my gosh I can't believe this I can't believe it oh my gosh oh my gosh .I threw up when it hit my precious son came looking and for all these years he didn't know I had always been loving ,caring ,missing wanting him .He thought his mother didn't care.I had left both mine and my sisters contact info over and over.My sis because she always knows how to get me.They &^^)*^$@$^&*&&^$  lied when they told me and his parents they would ALWAYS facilitate reunion.

Oh my gosh i am just so nervous and beside my self.Laugh ,cry ,shake ,giggle sob over and over.just wow wow oh my gosh it is almost unreal

I have told my 27 yo son and my 21 yo daughter about the call.My daughter is away at college..she laughed and cried and is so excited.My 27 y.o was willing to drive 3 hours here get the info and then drive 4 hours a different direction to the agency office.Told him no need it won't go faster.We will tell our teens this weekend.My husband brought dinner home ...good thinkin no dinner here.He actually called to get the overnight instructions.Oh well I'll stop chattering I'm just beside myself.The day is coming soon oh my gosh

Thanks without this group well it is a lifesaver and kept me steady.It allowed me to get contacted by Batmom who took me to the IRL support group where our facilitator contacted my agency and intervened on behalf.This group is amazing.THANK YOU ALL


thank you thank you thank you for the support and joy for me.I talked to my uncle ...a retired judge ... for a couple of hours getting advice on handling this if they aren't as helpful as they should be.He is on the board of several non profits.He looked up stuff ,printed out part of their mission statement ,told me how to head up the ladder if needed,who their major foundation supporters are and the agencies soft spots.

It went very well with my teens.They are excited ,talked about it a bit then went back to their plans movie ,lazer quest with friends ...whew perfect ; )

Anyway time has slowed down here

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Omg, I'm so happy and nervous for you. Hopefully they will finally become diligent with your reunion and put it into high gear.
You have waited for way too long. I hope that the good news comes very early next week

My friend K and her daughter were both registered with the agency for 15 yrs and NO match was ever made. Both of them were told that the other had not registered.   My friend finally found her daughter by paying thousands to a private search company.  Here where i live, the govenrment sponsors a 'search registry" and MANY mothers have registered adn their children have too, just to find out years later that the registry intentionally kept them apart. They ONLY care about the paying customers, those who paid to get "a child of their own," not a child to share with their natural parents.  :(  We are treated like trash, but after all isn't that what the term 'birthmother' means? Someone whose only purpose is to give birth and drop off the face of the planet? :(  You were treated horribly by that agency.  They robbed you of 20 years with your son. This is horrific.
