My sister and I were taken away from my mom back in 1992. We lived in foster care for a few years. Finally, in 1997 we got adopted by my foster Parents Elizabeth and Felipe. In my mind, they are my parents and I am grateful for everything they did for us. However, my gratitude for their love and kindness cannot erase the emptiness I felt in my heart or the questions that keep coming up about my past and my heritage. In the beginning of this year I met SQA's CEO Investigator, Susan Friel-Williams. After hearing my story, she offered to find my mom. I gave her all the information I had, and low and behold, she was able to find my mom. She agreed to take my case as an "angel case" and I was blessed that I was not charged a single penny for the search.

In May I received a call from Susan--she gave me some numbers and I called my birth mother for the first time. The first number I called there was no answer; the second number I called a guy picked up and I asked for my mom by name. Once he put her on the phone she asked me which Marisol was calling. I told her my last name and she recognized me. Everything after that was very emotional. We couldnt talk but were just so happy to hear from each other.

In June, I was able to travel to Chicago to see my mom. I was nervous and excited at the same time. It was a little weird but we had a great time. I got to see many of my family members, including my grandma, my aunt, my cousins, and my god parents. They had a dinner get together for everyone to come and see us. Now we keep in touch and talk almost everyday, sometimes twice a day. Now my God Parents are trying to find my dad. Hopefully one day I will be able to see him. I am happy I was able to find my family--it brings peace to many nightmares I had about my past and at the same time I can work on my genealogy, which is very important to me. I have already started getting info from my mom. I am very thankful to Susan! I looked for so many years and I did not find anything. I probably did not look hard enough but I am very grateful to Susan and I would do anything for her.

When I went to visit we stayed up late and my moms boyfriend was telling me that when his cell phone was ringing he was not going to pick it up and then he decided to answer the phone. He said he almost hung up on me, but just gave it to my mom. I am not sure if why he decided to answer the phone when he did not recognize the number, but I am thankful he did answer and gave the phone to my mom. Search Quest America has blessed my life so much, and I just want to say thank you. I am so happy everything worked out for the best!
