    Found By My Son After 21 Years

    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...

    Reunited

    My son found me. I don't know how, he's only 15, the same age I was when I gave birth to him. He told me all about data mining and public domain searches and stuff, but I couldn't follow any of it. He's smarter at 15 than I am now. He's taking Advanced Placement classes in school...
