Over a year ago, my son was interested in searching for his birth mother. He decided not to do anything until our next visit in person, which was September of 2008. I brought with me a letter that his birth mother had written to him when he was ten years old. Now 24 years old, he had never seen or read it till that day.
I was more emotional than he was. He seemed to find it interesting but I really couldn’t read how he was feeling about it. He just seemed very calm and thought it would be fun to meet his birth mother and sisters some day. He wanted them to meet his wife and son and to know that he was successful and being a responsible adult.
During that visit, I gave him paperwork to contact the DHS of that state and left it in his hands. To my knowledge, he has not done anything yet. He is busy with his career, being a husband, and now a daddy. He has an 8 month old son at this writing. I am a grandma!
I am sure there will be more to this story someday… but at the moment, there is no time for searching the past.
