My name is Ronda.
My mom is adopted and was on Internet registries for several years. She always felt there was a missing piece in her life. She had a life changing event happen in 2011 and thought it was time to search for her roots. She was 51 at the time.
Mom started with getting my non-identifying information on her birth family and went from there. She had contacted other search and reunion companies and they wanted $2800 and $2300 for what she later found out was for a piece of paper with names for HER TO CALL. So she waited, She was doing ancestry on her adoptive family and posted on a message board about being adopted and got a response to make her first contact with a group online. She got mom's birth name but that was not enough. Mom was still wanting more. She got a referral to call a woman named Susan at Search Quest America and one of the first things Susan asked for was moms non-Id. She sent her a copy, Susan verified the name mom had been given, was in fact, mom. She asked a few questions, and said to give her some time. A few weeks later, she called and said "I found them" and here is their names and phone numbers. Search Quest America is awesome. Worth every cent. !!!
