Birth Parents

Today was a really special day!  I got a call from the Missouri State Adoption Services. Kinda caught me off guard.They found a match for my birth father. I put in my papers last September thinking there might be a chance that my birth parents put information in as well. I got a letter back saying they didn't have anything in the system but I would be informed should that change. For those of you who didn't know, I am adopted, and was at 6 weeks. My birth parents were 15 and 16 when they had me. I knew just a little about them from a paper I got about them. I didn't know their  names but I knew how tall they were, their height, weight, and hair/eye color at that time. I also knew some of their interests and  health backgrounds.

Back to the story. I talked to this sweet adoption service worker who said she had just talked to my birth father on the phone. He was really happy too. He had been looking through the records of the hospital trying to find a match. He had to get permission from my birth mom to contact me as they both have to say yes. She isn't ready to speak yet but since she has kept in contact with my birth father (they must still be friends) she gave him permission. I know his name, his address, and his phone number, which I won't disclose on here, and I also know what state my birth mother lives in. Pretty cool huh! The service worker said today was meant to be. My birth father had put in his papers in March of last year and I did my in September of last year. Apparently the papers were still at the court house I think so maybe that's why there was not a match right away. Crazy. I always thought I would go through out life not knowing much more about my birth parents, and I was okay with that. I just know the Lord had a hand in this and knew both of our desires.

I do want to contact him so I am waiting for the right time. Perhaps before the end of the year I will make the call. I am so blessed and love my parents I have today. I wouldn't trade them for the world. I do however feel like a piece of me has been found and that I don't have to go on forever wondering.

Oh happy day!
