searching

‘I wanted to find my biological parents. My mom told me ‘no’. It was a closed adoption. Soon after, a mail order DNA test caught my eye.’ Woman ‘stuck between 2 worlds’ embarks on search for family names

“On top of being adopted and feeling different, I WAS different. With my dark hair, green eyes, and short stature, I stood out. I remember looking at pictures, my family laughing about how all their noses matched. I couldn’t participate in the conversation. I felt like an outsider. My husband and I decided it was time. I sent it off.”

‘We fell into each other’s arms for our first hug ever in 31 years. There are no words. It was perfect.’: Woman meets birth parents after finding them on Facebook, finally ‘feels whole’ again

“I landed on the Facebook page of a man with big blue almond-shaped eyes eerily like my own. Could it be him?! Oh my God! My mind was racing a million miles a minute when my husband came home from work. He saw me on the couch, unshowered, shaking, with the world’s biggest smile plastered on my face. I couldn’t hold it in. ‘Babe! I think I found him!’ He didn’t even know I existed. I kept pinching myself to make sure this was real.”
