A birthmother who, after finding her daughter, first contacted the adoptive parents wrote:
"I heard from K.'s parents and they gave me a favorable response to my letter. They said they would like to meet me. I feel that sense of closure that I've waited for so long and hopefully we can open up a new chapter which will be rewarding. They said having K. meet me would not diminish their relationship with her, but may enhance it. They seem like wonderful people. Thank you for all you've done!"

"I met my son on Saturday for over two hours. It was wonderful! He is a nice looking young man who obviously had lots of questions for me. He even gave me a big hug.

(These children were taken from their mother when they were very young by their father and placed for adoption without their mothers knowledge or consent.) A sister who found her brother and sister, who had been adopted together, wrote:
"As you can imagine the adrenaline is flowing. I waited three days and called. My brother was elated, he gave me my sister's number, and we talked for six hours. Scary, but good. My mother cried for nearly two straight days. We agreed to keep in touch and of course, take it slow. Words do not seem enough to thank you but until I can hug your neck, they will have to be. Thank you! As the web un-weaves, I will keep you posted."

A critically ill adoptee's daughter and her husband who found her birth-grandmother wrote:

D.R. of California
An adoptee who found his birthmother after a difficult, two-year search wrote:
"The long search gave me time to understand my reasons for searching and time to develop an open heart and mind. My relationship with my birthmother has developed into a wonderful friendship which is more than I ever expected. Together, our families have gone on vacations, celebrated birthdays, and spent many hours learning about each other.
I appreciate your cooperation and support throughout my search. Although I had doubts many times, you never gave up hope and instead came up with new strategies and ideas. Your personal interest in my case was the most important factor in discovering a possible contact. And, then, when it was time, you stepped back and let me make the final connections to birth family members that led to my birthmother. Thank you from all of us!"
