Growing up, I always wished I had a sister, but it just wasn't in the cards for me. My parents were the most absolutely wonderful people you could ever meet. My mother passed away in 2005 when I was 37 years old and it was a heart-breaking time for all of the family. When I was going through her things, I got the shock of my life when I came across legal documents and discovered that I was adopted. MY birth mother apparently abandoned me when I was a few days old, and I was adopted shortly after that. Suddenly, my yearnings for siblings seemed to make sense. I asked myself, "what if I have a brother or sister out there somewhere?" and in my heart of hearts I yearned to search for my birth family.

Yet at the same time, I thought if my mom had wanted me to search, she would have told me about my adoption sooner. I felt that if I searched for my birth family I would be betraying her somehow. Then, a few months ago I was talking to my closest and dearest friend who is extremely psychic. She told me that my mom said to her, "its fine. Go ahead and look. I want you to." From that point onward I knew I had her blessing, so I found SQA this past June.

My birth family was found in just two weeks. I was quite surprised. I thought it was going to take a lot longer. Though I had excellent information which I think helped. Linda and Julie were both so understanding, kind, and sincerely interested in helping me find my birth family. They were absolutely phenomenal and I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

Not only do I have a sister, I also have 2 brothers! My sister's name is Linda and it took us about a minute and a half to break down crying together that first phone call. We have become best friends. I've talked to Linda every day since we both found out. If it's not phone calls its quick emails or texts, 99% of the time on the phone. We are really starting to bond now and it's a very exciting time. My husband and I are going out to Philadelphia to see the whole family in August. I'm very excited.

From how well everything worked out, you would think that the family had known about me all along. Actually, no one had ANY idea that my birth mother had had a baby before Linda. They were all in total shock when Julie called them out of the blue. It turns out that Linda has also always wanted a sister. She may not have had one before but she definitely has one now! We have some things in common, but we're still learning a lot about each other. There is a resemblance between us. I spoke to one of my brothers, John, and he is just the sweetest guy and he said he was going to be there the weekend we are going there, and I'm thrilled to death, I can't wait to meet him. I have nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. They can't wait to meet me and I am just so thrilled that they have welcomed me with open arms.

Looking back, I wish I had searched sooner! I was afraid to be rejected, and that was part of the reason I put it off for so long. But this turned out so well! Within 48 hours I had dozens of friend requests on Facebook.

We're never going to know the circumstances behind my adoption, however. My birth mother passed away a few years ago, and she never told a soul about me. I am just grateful for this wonderful new family. I'm also thankful to my husband, who has been 110% supportive this entire time. He had tears in his eyes when I found out I was adopted, and again when I got the call that my case was solved.

If there's anyone out there who's a little nervous about searching for their birth parents, I say go ahead and do it! It's a wonderful thing to find out you have an entire other family out there. It has really brought me full circle and answered many of my questions about myself. I don't have any regrets, and I could not ask for a better experience, or a more honest, hard-working, caring company! Thanks a million for everything!
