"I have always wondered who my biological parents are. My name is Casey and this is a huge piece of my life that has yet to be answered. It's hard growing up and not looking like anyone else in your family. I would love to be around people that look like me. Being able to learn more about my birth parents and or meet them would bring me a great piece of mind and allow me to have this lingering part of my life answered. You would help me better understand who I am, and most importantly to hopefully build a relationship with my birth parents. I would be forever grateful to you and your organization if you were able to make this happen for me. You would change my life for the better. I hope you can help me."

Looking back, it is hard to imagine myself writing that email. On the one hand I was so nervous that I was wasting my time and money contacting Search Quest America, but something told me this was a company I could trust. I am so glad I did! I am 23 years old and for the last 10 years or so I have had an ache in my heart when I think about my birth parents. All I know is that I was born in Oklahoma City, daughter of Gayle Point and James Dair. I have no idea how old they were or what motivated them to put me up for adoption. Throughout my life I have gone through stages where I have alternated between anger and resentment at them for giving me away and gratitude for the wonderful opportunities I was given through my adoptive family. They have always loved me, but that love has not filled the hole in my heart or given me answers about who I am or where I come from.

I know it sounds cheesy, but Search Quest America was literally the answer to my prayers. My case was assigned to Julie Jones and I actually read stories about her on this website when I heard that she was assigned to be my researcher. I never imagined that she would solve my case in the time period mentioned by other people, but I got a call back from her three weeks after we first spoke. She had found my birth mother living in Las Vegas and my birth father living in Houston. She left a message for my birth mother and got a hold of my birth father right away.

The day I first heard my birth father's voice was October 27, 2009. The first thing he said to me was, "I've been hoping you would call me some day." All at once I was filled with warmth and love and knew that even from a world away, my birth father has thought about me and cared about me. He told me all about how he met my birth mother and the reasons they decided to give me up for adoption. He encouraged me to write a letter to my birth mother, which I did. I am still waiting to hear back from her, but I couldn't wait to tell my story and tell everyone out there what a blessing it is to have found this company that actually delivers on its promises. This whole experience totally exceeded my expectations, and I know there are even more happy surprised to come. Thanks so much to SQA and Julie--you really have changed my life for the better!
