I haven’t come to this blog in a while, but I think it is time to do some writing. I think it is more about therapy for me, than entertainment for you. I get the feeling that I am going to be somewhat serious for a while.
I was adopted as an infant. I have always said I wanted to know who my birth parents were, and I thought about it over the years, but I never really did anything about it. On November 15th the laws concerning adoption in Illinois changed, and I had the ability to fill out a sheet of paper, get a check for 15 bucks, send it in, and my original birth certificate would be on its way to me.
This was a day I had looked for all of my life! The crazy part about it, I didn’t know if I really wanted to know.
I filled out the paperwork, went to the bank to get a Cashier’s Check, and set it all on my countertop at home. It took a week, but I finally put it in an envelope and sent it in. Now the waiting begins. I wonder where this journey will take me. I look forward to every moment.
As the time goes by, I will continually update my story and thoughts as I go thought something that could be life changing. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for me, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
