A little too late?.

July 19, 2008 1:26pm CST
We have just found out that we have a new family member, no not a newborn baby,but a 31 year old man. It all started when my partner got a phone call from one of his sisters to tell us that their eldest sister son, who she gave up for adoption,had got in touch as he wanted to meet his birth mother. Unfortunately his mother passed away just over two years ago he was very shocked and upset to hear this as he just could not believe it as she was just 48 when she died. But some good did come out of this he decided he wanted to meet the rest of the family and the ones he has met so far he has got on great with. He and my parnter have been texting each other to get to know each other. We will be meeting him next weekend at my partner's brother's wedding. It's such a shame that he will never get to meet his birth mother. She did try to search for him but backed away when she found out that both his adoptive parents were dying of cancer as she did not want to interfere at the time. Have you ever wished you tried to find someone before it was too late?

Hi littleone, That is great for him to find you all..I know how hard to find a relative when you are being adopted... I have known several friends who are still trying to find their biological parents until this time, but no idea how to start and where to search them!

I have seen how hard it is i have a friend that was adopted but is unsure about finding her birth parents. I am hoping this may insipre her to find them. But do not want to push it with her. Thanks for your response.

well it is sad that she has past away but you can all help him get to know her. i am sure you all have pictures , letters, old report cards, trophies , clothes, a drawing she did , something of hers etc that youc an share. that and you have your memories. it is great that he has decided to meet all of you and be apart of that. i also think that it is wonderful that you are all welcoming him with open arms. that means alot to him i am sure. maybe after all of you meet and it isnt a family affair like a weeding that you can all get together again and bring pictures and other things and just talk and show him stuff. i am sure he would love it and it would be great for the family too. kind of like a day for her maybe on her birthday to celebrate it. i dont know how she past or if it is painful for the family but it would be great for him and depending on the family and what happened maybe great for ya'll too.
