Why we searched

I need to explain my part in this adoption triad. I am an adoptive mother who helped her three children search for their birth families. I felt this was vital to their adult lives as the need to know your genetics, your birth parents and why you were relinquished never leaves you. Without all this information my chidlren were confused, lost and rebellious. Also, my mother was orphaned at age 2 and I saw her need to know agitate her all her life. I wish I could have helped her learn more about her genetics also. That is why I am working with MCAR (Minnesota Coalition for Adoption Reform) to help others obtain their original birth certificate at age 19. My children have reunited with all their families, so we feel blessed. Any questions? Eunice
