Amazed

Almost a month ago now, I signed up for a site (www.iwasadopted.com) never expecting that within literally 10 minutes, I would find my birth mother. I was adopted at 3 months old, and am now 24. She had profiles posted saying that she thought of me every day, and loved me very much, and one that even told me about my 2 sister and brother! The email I sent to her didn't come through into her email, so with the help of the website owner, she tracked her down on Facebook and sent her a message for me. A day later, the site owner said she'd made contact and to expect an email soon.

After about 10 minutes, I refreshed the webpage, and there it was... a reply from my Mother. She gave me her phone number and email, and left it up to me which to contact her with. I called after about 30 minutes of crying and rejoicing. We talked for two hours. I got to hear my sister and brother in the background. We made plans for the NEXT day to meet in person, for the first time in 24 years. She turned out to live only an hour and a half away.

The next day came and I counted down the hours, we got there in a good amount of time. There were hundreds of hugs coming from all directions, tons of tears and "I love you's" were exchanged. It was the most amazing night of my life so far. I have gotten to see her twice since then, the last time was yesterday. She brought my Grandpa and sister with her, and we went out to lunch and had a great time.

I can't wait to experience the rest of my life with her. I never thought it would happen!

They are alright with it, my adoptive brother seems to be unaffected. My birth siblings have all known about me their whole lives, they explain that it's like having a ghost as a sister, but now they have me. They're wonderful. I can't wait to make up all the years we missed growing up.

How about your adopted family? Are they ok with it and are your brother and sister jealous or anything?

I'm so happy for you, I think this is the best story I've heard on hear. Thats just fabulous, You hear of other reunions that aren't as happy, I'm so happy for you.
