Cher Reunites with 2 Sisters

My name is Cher, I am 59 years old, and I have been trying to find my birth parents for about 25 years. I would like to, if they are still alive and if they would want anything to do with me. My adopted parents have both passed away. I have always felt in my heart that I have brothers and sisters, but didn't know for sure. I would like to know the health history of my parents as I have no information at all. I don't know what to expect for my own health. My own children also want to know what to expect through their life. They know their father's family history but don't know anything about mine. I do have information about when my birth parents were born but that is about it.

I have tried to get my adoption records from the state but they won't let me know anything about my birth parents. I have the non-ID papers, which say my birth mother was born in Red Oak, IA on 6-26-1933. She was of German descent, and was 5 ft. 4 inches tall. Their name is blacked out so I can't read it. I don't know if my family is looking for me like I am looking for them. I will understand that it's possible there might not be any information available for me. It just means that it was the good Lord's will if was not meant to be.
After a 25-year search, I was very surprised when my SQA researcher, Robert Martindale, found my birth parents in less than a month! Somehow he found out my birth mother's name was Donna. She passed away on June 6, 1992 in her home in Midvale, North Dakota. She was a member of the First Baptist Church.

My birth father's name is Marion Leslie Fiscus. He and my birth mother were married a few months before I was born in 1952. They were divorced in 1954. On the divorce papers, it shows that they had two children, Cheryl and Merlin. Donna was married and divorced a few times in her life. One of her children is named Marcia.

Marcia was the first person Robert contacted who returned his phone call. She confirmed that Donna was her mother and that she had been married and divorced like it says in the records. She also confirmed that she had a sister named Cheryl, and that they would be interested in meeting me.

The day they called me I was out in the back yard pulling weeds out of my flower garden. I hear the phone ring inside and hustled to get it before the caller hung up. When Robert told me he had solved the case and my sisters would be calling me shortly, I felt the irrational need to straighten my clothes and fix my hair. Even though they couldn't see me through the phone, I wanted to make a good impression. I wanted them to like me, and I was really curious about their lives and what they could tell me about our parents.
I am so blessed to be in touch with my sisters. I thank God for pointing me in the direction of SQA. I know now that this reunion is His will and I am just grateful for all the blessings he gives me every day. I pray he will bless each one of you, and anyone who is in search of their birth family, as I was. I know from experience it is well worth the wait and the wondering, and if it's meant to be it will all work out.

Thank you, Cher Schuchhardt
