Are You My Mama?

I called the PI, twice. Finally she got back to me via email. She claims that my case is still open and they are still searching for my biological family. The problem they are having is that my information states that I was born in one state, New York, and was adopted in another, Massachusetts.

Neither state is willing to give me even my non-identifying information. Which they both would give, if I had been born and adopted in one of those states. But not both!

I already knew this. I was denied the ability to even register as an adoptee in these states which means any bio family would be denied also. But I've already written about this issue in past posts.

Still frustrated and annoyed.

So tonight I'm going to start searching online for a new PI. Then tomorrow I'm going to call some and see if I can't find any with the ability or experience, to break through these barriers.

The only good thing about the PI I have now, is that I haven't had to pay anything. I have a set fee contracted to pay only when they find someone living in my bio family. Name, address, phone number.

Again, any suggestions?

Have you tried calling while you are very emotional and bawling your eyes out?

Sorry I have no suggestions but I can bring vodka and Buffy DVDs.

I think.. I'd make a facebook page for each state, for adoptive information, and place your information you do know, such as your birthday, etc. and anything that you may have like baby pics or even ones of yourself as you've grown up.. You may resemble someone in your biological families.. your maternal and paternal ones. I think, that it may be worth trying. What could it hurt? I recently heard of a young girl who found her biological family, and didn't really have much help from the authorities either in order to do it. Sometimes, I think, that if its meant to happen, it will. I'm a nurse too. For 27 years...and now, I'm having a hard time getting hired, because the hospitals are wanting to cut costs and are hiring young nurses with only a year or two of experience, so they are low on the payscale. But, I am praying that God will continue to help me and has the perfect spot for me.. Its a matter of trusting. So, hang in there!!.. I think you will find who you are intended to find... just be patient..and keep trying different ideas...
A billboard might not be a bad idea whatever city you were born or raised in... but, its pricey. Good luck!!!
