Adoption Search

I am just starting the search for my birth mother and already have this horrible guilt and fear.

Both my parent have been encouraging me for the last 4 years to try to connect for at least current medical history, so my guilt does not lie with possibly hurting them. They are very supportive.

My guilt lie with on how I was told ( can't prove, my mother has told me many lies) I was concieved, think the worst violation any person can suffer.

What right to I have to contact this women? But even so I feel a void.

I hope you find the answers you are looking for! I know it isn't easy - but if you feel the need to know, then you need to at least try. If she says she isn't interested in a relationship, well, as hard as that may be, at least you would know.

MommyIngraham, I, too, am adopted. A few years ago, I decided to look up the birth parents to see if there was any negative medical history. I went through my County's court system. They have the records. I was also able to obtain my original birth certificate which shows the parents' names, address, ages, and that I had three older siblings when I was born. You may want to contact the court house. They'll most likely want a form of ID, but you can call them to find out. Good luck in your search. Please keep us posted.

HUGS!! Good luck. If it really is what you think it may be, be prepared for possible rejection. Chances are she has tried to put it behind her and she may not want to have the wounds opened.

My 3 siblings are adopted. They have never wanted to search though, so I have no advice on that route.

Mommy Ingraham - Try not to feel the void, guilt, or fear if you can - you have supportive people in your life who love you and that is what matters.

My unwed mother intended to have me adopted as a newborn but a paperwork screwup meant that the nurse let her see me, and well, that was that - I was never adopted. But I think my life, and hers, would probably have been better if I HAD been adopted...she died when I was 27 at 56 years of age of cancer having never traveled or held a job since my birth, and I grew up in poverty without a traditional family structure at a time that wasn't cool.

Everybody wonders what if - it is a natural thing to do - and its OKAY to want this and to pursue it. The important thing is to not stake your emotions, health, or general wellbeing on what you find out.

PM me if you want someone to talk to, and keep us updated!
