Finding a needle in a haystack

  1. I loved this post so much. I am adopted myself, from Brazil. I don’t know anything about who gave me up at all. I am most interested in finding family more for a connection to the place and to see the resemblance. I think my chances are slim, but you never know right:) By the way, thank you for liking my blog post on my family houses. It’s always encouraging to receive likes to know people are reading and enjoying!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Sarah! It does feel like a miracle that my mother in law has information and family she can meet after 60+ years of searching. We are lucky that she was told verbally at least her birth mother’s name. That was the key in our search. I was speechless when I saw the first photo of Librada.

      Were you adopted through an agency? I wonder if there are records somewhere you can request. Suerte in your search!!

      1. I’m not entirely sure to be honest. This woman who married into my adoptive family helped with the adoption. I think I need to ask her more questions but as far as I know she worked at an orphanage and someone she knew at the local hospital told her there was a baby that needed adopting. She said she never met my birth parents and doesn’t know their names. I think starting with her is key, but she is very close with my adoptive parents and myself actually. Thank You 🙂

    1. Thanks Su ☺️ it has been an amazing experience to be part of. My mother in law has never been to the US though we’re still trying to convince her to visit, especially since she has so many siblings to meet here. We’ll see. In the meantime, my family will drive ten hours to visit two of Martha’s sisters over Memorial Day. We hope to Skype with Martha while we’re there in the presence of her sisters.
