what if who you thought you were you learned years later was different?
so as you know i have only recently like 2 years ago started the process of unearthing all the hiden secrets about my past and were my orgins are where i come from. turns out i am exactly 78.125 precent native american scince i was a kid i was alway told i half latino half white by my new foster parents which i knew was unture because of social services had told me other wise as a child, social services told me I was half mayan half white. i studied their for everything to do with chorti mayan people however then i talk with my birth father and he told me like everyone else who were not my parents had suspected that he was not just white but over half cherokee 56 1/2 precent cherokee. both her grandmother's were full blood and his grandfather and one of his grandfathers was a quarter. swhich was cool because many of what i had been always drawn to was in fact cherokee culture and beliefs but had never picked up the language so started the process of learning. i tried to ask my father about my mother and he would only say she was honduran or oh she spoke spanish. finally the other day i got it out of him the actual truth which has been confirmed by others who personally new her. my mother he said spanish was in fact not her first lanugage but her second her first language was tiwara miskito because she was a full blood tiwara miskito indian. now i drew a blank this was one of the few tribes of central and north america i knew nothing about other than having heard of their name before. so my quest for who i am has taken a big turn i am learnin a lot now on tiwira miskito language and culture. i contacted their embacy to see if they had records on my birth mother. i also gave then pics of her along with birthday and birth name and the name of her brother which my birth father finally gave. lots more things now of my memories and things i chose as i child are now making more sense and little by little i feel i am becoming more complete as a person like i was a puzzlewith only a few of my pieces little by little i am comming to gether now i just have to try to continue my quest find my birth mother in the california and hopefully go to the rio platano bio reserve in honduras some day as well someday.
i meet my father and his birth family for the first time in 21 years back where i was born in transyvania county in the mountains of nc up near the cherokee reservation in 1 week.
i will be obtainning pics i never saw of myself as a baby from him. also to meet the doctor who delivered me John Ross who lool is 81 and still practicing medicine. i also going to try and see if i can go to the records office in transylvania county to get my info on how much i weighed as a baby, my length and my expected due date. i then plan on seeing a friend i have not seen 8 years and get records hopefully on my fathers' parent's, their sibblings, grandparents and his great grandparents for my ancestry family tree info.
I am so exited and nervous all at the same time. i am also bringing my husband my inlaws and my 8 month old daughter up for the first time up their.
