To employees of SQA

I just wanted to send a thank you to all that helped with the search for my son.

My case was officially opened on 1-13-10 and closed on 1-23-10. It is amazing that it only took 10 days.

On Friday 1-22 I received a phone call from my case worker telling me that she had located my son, his name, and that she was waiting for a call from him. I didn’t expect to hear back from her within the hour much less that same day. When she made the second call it was to give me the phone number which would let me hear my son’s voice for the very first time. I was very hesitant to make that call, but I did and we talked for 1 and ½ hours for the very first time.

To my surprise, the next morning when I checked my email he had already sent pictures of himself, wife and son. I called my other 3 children and told them the good news, I gave them his face book and email address. The four of us spent most of Saturday on the phone or computer talking to one another. He called me late Saturday evening and I called him again of Sunday, we were on the phone for 3 hours that time.

I thank God, each and everyone at SQA for my son. I will stay in touch and keep you posted on future events. It may take a while before we get to meet in person because he is in Tucson, Az., and I am in Brownwood Tx.
