Long Awaited Journey

Tomorrow I embark on a trip of a lifetime. I’m headed to the Midwest better known as “The Heartland.”

Back-story - Many moons ago I was put up for adoption at birth. It was a closed adoption and my adoptive parents picked me up from the hospital when I was only a few days old. For all my life I’ve searched for my birthparents with no luck.

At the beginning of this year I decided to start searching again. In March I received a call that my birthmother was found and wanted contact with me. I’ll spare you all the details but in a nutshell not only was I able to locate her but also learned that she had never told my birthfather that she was pregnant. She gave me his name and with today's technology and social media I was able to locate him and sent him a letter hoping for a response. He called me the day after receiving my letter. Things are going well and I could have never wished for a better outcome.

I will be meeting my birthmother this weekend for the first time. It seems so surreal!

Now for FCFF. You will still see daily posts and FB updates. I may not respond as quickly to posts or emails but I will as soon as I’m able.

Thanks for letting me share a little bit of my personal life with you all and “see” you all soon!

P.S. If anyone is adopted, has adopted or is thinking about adoption please feel free to PM me with any questions, support or advice.
