Where Did You Come From?

Aug 14, 2008
Although Haley loved her adoptive parents as much as any child ever loved his or her natural parents, she still had an empty place inside which would only be filled when she knew who had been responsible for bringing her into the world. Haley had spent much of her adult life trying to trace her birth parents, but aided only by the names of her biological mother and the city in which she was born, she had very little hope of success.

Ashley was unable to get any further information from the adoption agency which had placed her with her adoptive parents. She spent countless hours doing Internet searches on her mother's name, and kept running into dead ends. She was beginning to think she'd never track down her biological parents, who were the only people who could answer all her questions.

She wanted to look at them and see if she could find a resemblance. She wanted to know the reasons that she was put up for adoption and she wanted to thank them for giving her the opportunity to have the life that she had led with her beloved adoptive parents.

She just couldn't get over the need to talk to them, to see them, to at least know that they were alive and where they were. Haley gave up for a while because she was out of resources and out of leads. However, upon another trip to the adoption agency, she found that there was a new girl working.

Once again Ashley thought she was in for a disappointment, as the new woman interrupted before she had completed her question about getting more information on her birth parents. The woman repeated what Ashley already knew, that the adoption agency was not at liberty to reveal anything about them.

But then Haley was taken completely by surprise. The adoption agency staffer told her that while the agency couldn't answer her questions, there was a website which could help her locate her birth parents. With the site's URL hastily scribbled on a scrap of paper, Haley rushed home and immediately logged onto the site, which was a reverse records website. She anxiously typed her biological mother's name into the search box.

And all at once, Haley's search was over! The website immediately provided her birth mother's address and phone number, and did in seconds what Haley had been unable to do in years. Haley could now write to her birth mother, or even phone her and hear her voice for the very first time.

Within seconds, the website provided her with a new address and phone number. Haley absolutely could not believe it. All these years she had searched and within seconds, she had found out where her real mother was. After coming to terms with the situation, Haley finally dialed the number that had popped up on the website.

Ashley heard only silence for seconds, but the woman didn't hang up, and then she quietly began sobbing. Ashley knew her struggle had at last borne fruit, and that she actually was speaking with the woman who had brought her into the world. Today Ashley not only knows and loves her birth mother, but has the joy of an extended family of half-brothers and sisters.

Although Ashley has still not been able to meet her biological father, they speak on the phone from time to time. And Ashley will never forget the adoption agency employee who gave her the URL of that website.
