I was adopted at the age of 6 weeks and knew that I was adopted for as long as I can remember. I have always had this emptiness inside like a piece of the puzzle was missing.

I was contacted by Pam Kish of Search Quest America in September of 2009 stating that she found my biological brother. He is 15 months older and was always told that his mother had miscarried.

Needless to say we were both quite surprised that we had a sibling. I was able to travel to meet him the weekend after Labor Day (approx. 4 days after finding out). I spent time this Christmas with him and his family. We were both born in Owensboro, Kentucky and were raised in Granite City, Illinois. We attended the same high school but did not know each other.

The puzzle piece is no longer missing.
