    I was 13 when I gave up my first-born son. August of last year, 21 years later, my son contacted me. I was overjoyed and terrified. I felt guilty and ashamed that I had surrendered him, even though I had no choice at the time. And I wanted to see him every day since then. I...

    Maybe

    ...the adoptee's birth parent[s] have another family and another life.Maybe they are deceased. Maybe they don't want to be found. Don't chase them on a social media site. Work with the placement agency that adopted you out and ask THEM to track down any leads based on information...

    As a small child, I was told

    that I was adopted. My adoptive parents didn't know very much about where I came from or who I was, only that I had a different first name which they changed during the adoption. When I turned 18, I found that I could make an appointment to view (but not copy) my original...
