/images/stories.asp?i=20110525104021.0.jpgWhen Mike first contacted SQA in January searching for his birth mother. He was filled with questions and seeking peace of mind. His adoptive parents supported him in his search, and shared all the information they had about his adoption. He knew that his birth father was probably born in Utah, his birth mother in Nebraska. He thought they were each 17 and 18 years old at the time of his birth. This information was garnered from his non-identifying information, which also revealed that he was born in San Francisco, California.

The case was assigned to SQA researcher Patty, who located Mike's birth mother Ginny living in Las Vegas. Ginny was happily married with a son and a daughter, who were not aware that Ginny had given a son up for adoption. Nevertheless, Ginny was very open to reuniting with Mike and providing information about his birth father, Terence, as well. Sadly, Terence passed away in his 20's, but Ginny provided Mike with pictures and information about him, along with the name of Terence's sister. Here, Mike and Ginny describe the experience in their own words:

"I am writing this in conjunction with my birth mother Ginny, and first would like to thank SQA and Patty for the outstanding job they did in handling the search process for me. Patty was relentless in her leads, and handled the first contact between my mother and me with the highest level of professionalism. It took Patty a mere week and half to find Ginny for me after I had traveled other avenues off and on again searching for over 6 years. I just spent one of the most fabulous weekends of my life getting reacquainted with my mom. Thankfully we are only a two-hour plane ride apart! This is now a new chapter in my life that I will cherish, and I feel it will only get better from here. As it turns out this is something we've both wanted for a long time, and I couldn't be happier with the results. We have 43 years of being apart to catch up on! I noticed your testimonials on Searchquest were usually only from one party involved in the search. Ginny and I thought it would be fun that we submit one together. Please feel free to post this in your testimonials. Thanks again!" --Mike

"Michael and I cannot fully express in one paragraph how we feel but wanted everyone to know how thankful we are for Searchquest and Patty. Thank you to Patty for helping my son in his pursuit to find me. The hope of someday seeing my son again was something I have carried in my heart for a very long time. And most of all, thank you to my son for not giving up!" --Ginny
