Adoption Stories

When I started this blog, I had no idea that my experience with adoption would ever be something that would have its own page. I knew at some point I would want to write about it, because it is a big part of who I am, so I did a little research (I love research!) as to what the online adoption community was like. I was blown away.

After I posted my first adoption story, which was to be part of a two-part series, I knew that it would go far beyond that. Thank you so much for your support in that very first post…and for sticking with me as the page grows, and my journey continues.

I have to say a very special, Thank you, to Search Quest America, specifically to Susan and Linda. You have been there for me every step of the way. They have been more than an agency to help me in my search, they have been a lifeline throughout the entire process…which is really just beginning.

    I could have said these exact same words a couple of years ago : )

    I look forward to reading the rest of your adoption story but also continuing to read about your food research. Just lately trying to health it up a bit around my house and am now off to check the sodium content in my pantry stuff. Sigh.

  2. I’ve only found your blogs today, and I’m now subscribing to both in my feed. I have now read your story and it’s really intriguing to me as I’m born in Germany as well. And no it’s not easy but much is to be down right stubborn and never give up.

    If I’d given up I’m sure I’d never found out as much as I have. Because the system is the way it is, one hand has no clue what the other is doing/saying. I’d love to share my story with you, so I’ll write again, and if you’d like I can try and help you as much as I can in your search. I’m working on a “how to search” in Germany. Then again you might be able to tell me a bit about what to do to find my birthfather who is American. For now I say thank you for sharing, and feel free to pop by over at mine.

  3. I’m really looking forward to reading your special post on Thursday, this is getting very exciting.

  4. Hi, my name is Alisa. I’m a foster parent and I am putting together a blog list of adoption/foster care related blogs and would love to include yours if that’s okay with you. Check out my blog (http://attemptingagape.blogspot.com/) and let me know what you think. Thanks! Alisa

  5. Hi Jamie. Glad to see you are setting us all a good example with your new breakfast habit. I was very interested to hear about your reunion with your b.mother but notice there doesn’t seem to be any current chat about it. The last thing I remember reading was that you and your mum were going to do a marathon together. Did it happen? I hope things are going well between you but as a reunited mother of five years I have learned how hard it is to build a new relationship especially when adoptive parents are throwing a spanner in the works. Split loyalties are very difficult and emotionally draining for all concerned. Please let me know how it is all going for you. With very best wishes. Mum2
