I do want to write, briefly, that a reader of my blog, who I’ve connected with via many emails off-blog, and who lives near the town where my birth mother lives, is, as of the writing of this post, heading to the town’s local library in the hopes of uncovering a picture of my birth mother or her family.
Can you imagine, never having seen anyone you look like, your requests for pictures from the very person who could provide them denied, and a virtual stranger has offered her time to do in-person research for you in the hopes of finally providing for you something you’ve sought your entire life? It is remarkable.
I am touched and beyond grateful. I also have a knot in my stomach both that she will find something and that she won’t.
So, I ask that if you are reading this, you hold in your thoughts for a moment that her journey is successful and that you send positive thoughts up and out to her.
Regardless of the outcome, thank you J.
