My name is Denise and because of this website, I have managed to get through a tremendous series of adoption questions and concerns. Through it all, I also managed to find a living cousin who happens to have all the long lost answers to my grandfather's adoption! This Friday, we're going to share a ton of information with each other over a great pizza pie in a private room of a local restaurant.
As it turns out, the family although estranged, never parted the county in which the adoption took place!
For those who are facing a lineage with adoption in its history, don't worry! Although the actual court proceedings of the adoption have been sealed, the actual surrounding information is still up for grabs. You just have to know where to look.
Plus, it took another GenForum member (my long lost cousin) to help me make the connection. Don't rule anything out until you've proven the theory, and don't be afraid to ask questions...you just might get the answers you're looking for!
