I am so thankful to Linda, Susan and especially Patty for helping me find my birth family on my mother’s side.

Since I found out my sister’s name on Sunday, March 21, 2010, I have experienced a whirlwind of emotions. It’s just so surreal to finally have some answers after 48 years of wondering! It’s doesn’t seem real yet. 

I’ve been on contact with my older sister, Ruby, via Face Book and email, and we have exchanged pictures. I do resemble another sister, Vicki, who unfortunately passed away just last November. Looking at her was like looking in a mirror. It was the strangest feeling. The strangest thing about this, is that my birth family knew about me and even wondered what happened to me. Come to find out, they grew up just 5 miles from where I grew up in San Diego! 

I decided to meet them and am flying to San Diego in 3 weeks. I will take lots of pictures so they can be posted on your web site. I am also currently writing up this experience to share on your web site for a reunion story. I would love to tell people out there that this can have a happy ending.

Thanks so very much for all of your help!! It’s been quite a wild ride, and one I wouldn’t trade for the world!!
