About This Blog

I am the mom of four spectacular children, and the wife of one very awesome and supportive husband, I am terribly sarcastic but in a truly loving way. I drive a 1967 cherry red Mustang convertible cleverly disguised as a cheerio infested mini van. It sports a cool bumper sticker that reads ” Adoptees deserve their ORIGINAL birth certificates.

I used an intermediary service to locate my birth family five years ago. My birth mother and siblings have chosen no contact although I do have sporadic interaction with my sister. I do not know the identity of my birth father.

My adoptive parents have been completely supportive regarding my search. They understand my need to know. They also understand that knowing my identity is my right. I wish all adoptees were as lucky in this regard. It saddens me that there are still adoptive parents out there who view searching as threatening or in some way a poor reflection on them as parents. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I believe all adoptees deserve the love and support of their parents if and when they decide to search.

Adoption for me has been both a blessing and a curse. I am here to make some sense of which parts are which. To heal what needs healing. The symptoms are such that honestly I am not entirely sure if I have adoptee anxiety or mad cow disease but either way it’s an issue.

Welcome Aboard!

    Dear Mia

    Love the blog. Shame about the bio parents.
    They are the ones who are losing out.

    My son and I reunited 4 years ago and it has been amazing. He is also reunited with his father and all of his siblings.

    Good luck with the surgery.

    When you feel better, could you post this?

    There is an adoptee who has a document from India that could be very valuable in finding his bio mom. He has already found out that his bio father is dead.

    The only problem is that he cannot read it.

    He is on “YouTube”.

    From his video:

    “A call for help with the translation of a medical document (in Mahrati dialect) which could contain information about my biological

    Birth info found so far: I am Nasir Khan, son of Zakir Khan and Kamrunbee, born in the muslim community of Akola, India on January
    2nd 1982.”

    Could you please pass this on?

    Hey sis..good site…. I enjoy all the writing. It’s been a really snowy winter here in Wisconsin. I will send you pictures soon .

  6. Mia. First I read your post about the family tree. It was very well written and explained things simply. I especially appreciated where you took the time to try to understand ‘why’ you were so upset about the topic. I know you did not do that soul searching for ‘us’, but I thank you for sharing it.

    I have added a link here on my blog. If you prefer I remove that link, please let me know.
    Thank you!

    Um are you sure your siblings chose no contact? What kind of intermediary was this? Who pays this person? I reunite families for free and it feels to me like…I don’t know I’ve never used the state registries or adoption agencies. I don’t care if they want to be contacted or not anyway and besides the things that might have made them afraid to talk one year can be dead the next like husbands. Mom’s don’t own the right to stop info from flowing to other members of the family. Did your siblings say no or did she say no to you contacting your siblings? I’ve met many who don’t feel the way their parent feels about it. I can understand where you might want to leave sleeping dogs lie. Because it sounds incredibly painful. If you want to look for your dad I’d do it for free in my spare time you’d forget you even told me then maybe one day you’d get a happy call. Otherwise you’d never hear anything, I’ve only had to tell someone their mother did not want to admit once but I’m not done with her yet. I’ll figure out how to get him to the rest of his family.

    I like your blog.

  8. Fantastic post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!
