Well, I did it. I mailed away for E’s marriage certificate. It’s something I have avoided because I really wanted her to come forward with the information about my birth father herself. Of course it is still entirely possible she is telling the truth and she really doesn’t know who he is. I wish I knew for certain. I don’t like doubting her but she has given me no reason to believe anything she says. Quite the opposite actually.
Whether the name of her first husband will lead me to my birth father (thinking they could be the same person) I don’t know but it is the last step I can take. It will either open other doors or it will prove fruitless. Either way this is it, the last thing I can do before saying I have done everything reasonable to find the other half of my biological identity.
I guess on the up side I can continue to change my nationality based on what International dish I feel like making for dinner.
