You Closed the Whole in Our Hearts

I want to let the world know that my son Jeff and I just spent the most amazing 2 days of our lives together this past weeken! 43 years after giving him up for adoption, I held my son in my arms again and we both wept tears of joy!! Jeff flew from Colorado to Seattle to our home here in Lake Chelan (This was after only a couple of emails and a 5 hour telephone conversation). It felt as if we had never been separated.

I have had a big hole in my heart for 43 years. I was only 18 when I got pregnant with Jeff--his father was out of the picture before I even knew I was pregnant, and when they found out about the baby I carried, my parents told me the best thing I could do was give him up for adoption. They arranged the adoption privately, and told me that he went to a wonderful home and that his parents were kind, generous people who would give him a good life. Even at 18, I knew he deserved to grow up in a stable family with a mother and father, and that was something I was powerless to provide for him. It was a heartbreaking time, and even as I grew up, got married, and had more children, I never got over my need to see my baby again and find peace in knowing I did the right thing.

Hiring Search Quest America was definitely the turning point in my search. It only took 30 days before Julie (my researcher) called to tell me she had found him. I thought I was prepared for the news, but suddenly I got cold feet and asked that she make the first contact on my behalf. She called me ecstatic a few hours later to report that not only was Jeff willing to reunite with me, but he was overjoyed that I had finally found him! Jeff and his mother have both thought about me over the years and they agreed years ago that if I ever showed up on their doorstep, they would welcome me into the family with open arms.

I am so grateful for Julie and her guidance in the whole process! Jeff and I both agreed that because of the professionalism of Search Quest of America every step seemed logical and right. We both always felt that you followed what we wanted, kept us calm and helped us get to the step of contact. Please let whomever at Search Quest you report to know that we are very, very happy. We will never be separated again and will be seeing each other again in March. This time my husband Greg and I are going to his neighborhood. Our families are thrilled and there was not one single problem or issue for any of them except when do we get to meet him?

We are very, very happy. Thank you all for helping to close the hole we've had in our hearts for a very long time. The best to you for the new year, ours certainly will be special!!

Sincerely,

Linda (and Jeff)
