Call Me Yesterday!

My name is Sharekia and I have a beautiful 19 year old daughter, Syheenah, who has never met her father.

We were together 20 years ago, lost contact, and he was never told he has a daughter. We met in the summer of 1990 when I was living in Dallas. Recently, my daughter has been asking me so many questions about her birth father. I can tell she is in a difficult time in her life, trying to find herself and figure out what kind of person she wants to be.

Now that Syheenah is an adult, she understands that relationships between men and women do not always last. She understands that her father has been out of the picture not because he doesn't love her, but because he doesn't even know he has a daughter. I don't want to get her hopes up or tell her that I am trying to find him, but I'm ready to do the right thing and find Syheenah's father.

I know that his name is Clyde McDonald. I last saw him in Dallas, Texas. I do not know his date of birth, age, or social security number. I know that his father has the same name, but is Clyde McDonald Sr. He has a twin sister named Sabrina, and sometimes goes by Tyrone or "Polo." I think he went to Skyline High School in Dallas, and would have graduated around 1988.

I contacted SQA for the first time last August. My case was assigned to Julie and she found him within three days! Can you believe he is still living in Dallas, Texas? He works for a Dairy company and goes by Tyrone. His sister Sabrina also lives in Dallas and runs a spa. Julie called the Dairy where he works to get a message to him. His supervisor promised to give him the message and he must have called him right away. He called Julie right back and said "I remember Sharekia! You give her this number and tell her to call me YESTERDAY!"

How do you tell an ex-lover that you got pregnant, had a child 19 years ago, and by the way, she's yours? Julie made it easy, and when I picked up the phone and called him, it was like no time has passed at all. He is thrilled to find out about Syheenah, and we are making plans to get together so they can get to know each other. After I contacted Tyrone for the first time, all that was left was to tell Syheenah.

I left a message on her voicemail to come over as soon as she could. She practically broke down the door, thinking something bad had happened to me, or I had some bad news to tell her. When I told her I had found her father, and he wanted to meet her, she was shocked. She screamed and started jumping up and down, and could hardly get her fingers to dial his phone number fast enough. I know that this is the missing piece that is going to give her the confidence to move forward in her life with high expectations. Thank you Julie and SQA for making this possible for her, and for me too!
