Hello my friends.
I wasn't really sure where to put this, but I did know I didn't need to have it in the Above forums, so I thought this should be ok.
The reason I am posting is because I am adopted and I am wondering if any members here are as well,and if they have tried pursuing their real
parents. I am about to become 53 soon and have had many years to think about it, but have always put it off for various reasons.
I have looked around online a bit to try and decide what direction to take but it all seems to be pretty confusing or just way too much input for my
mind to sort through. So hence I find myself putting it off for another day.
It dawned on me last night that maybe some members here may have some tips or advice on where to start or how to go about this. I don't know if I
want so much as to actually find my family, but I would like to maybe find out my original name and their names just to establish some of my history a
bit. Who knows how far I will actually go as I know myself and once Im on the right track I may just dig to the end!
I also have one daughter and I think she might like to know some of our history as well. I don't know why bloodlines feel so important. I love my
adopted family, yet still, there is always this tingling to know in the back of ones mind. Im sure other adopted members know what Im referring
Anyhow, any help or tips or points to a good starting direction would be wonderful and I would be most grateful.
Just for the record, I am from Florida. I don't know if states have different protocols for this sort of thing.
Thanks for listening and any help offered.
