Three and a half years ago, I started the search for my mom's baby sister. She was surrendered in late 1969 or late 1970, possibly given the name Louise by her adoptive family and it was in Seattle.
Well, I was browsing adoptee profiles on a reunion/search site.
Found an adoptee who was born in Dec 1969. The middle name given to her was Louise. Now the birth mother info she has is off by a few years (claims mother was 28, but gram was 31). This struck me because my grandmother always claimed to be 28 at EVERY birthday.
I sent her a private message letting her know who I was and what information I have regarding this lost sibling's birth and to please message me with any other info she might have.
Well, she saved me as a contact.
Here's to hope.
ETA - One question:
Is it possibly the non-ID info the adoptee received was not truthful? Could the mother purposely be deceitful in what information she shared to ensure the adoptee could never find her? Like lying about her age, physical description and even the ages of her other children, if she has them.
I ask because there is another who fits close as well (middle name also Louise). Once again, the ages are off by a few years, but she fits because her birth mother was divorced and she was not the ex husband's child. It also stated she was parenting other children, and their ages are close, but a few yrs off. Physical description doesn't fit Gram either.
