I just wanted to share my story with someone. I have spent a few years looking on and off for my birth mother. By a stroke of luck someone saw my details online, did some research for me and gave me her address. I wrote to her, putting my email address on the letter and shortly afterwards I received an email from her. That was a week ago. I could never have anticipated what sort of reaction I would get but it has been amazing. I am so glad I found her, when we write it feels like we have known each other all our lives and are very much alike. I haven't yet told my adoptive family, I am just enjoying this special time but I have been feeling guilty as I really want to have some sort of relationship with my birth mother and this is what she wants too. I was the only child she ever had so it makes the situation even more uique. We email on a daily basis and have exchanged photos etc and she is thrilled to learn she has grand-children. I keep wondering if it is wrong to want her to be involved in my life but I am so thrilled that I have found her it seems the right thing to do. I now know how lucky I am, many people don't get this response from their birth parents and I feel truly blessed that I did. Thanks for listening.
