This is a miraculous moment with my extended family, most of whom I met for the first time when this was taken in 1995. After searching for 20 years, I found that my birthmother had already died. However, I found wonderful siblings and blood relatives.
My wife Carmen is behind me. Brother Ken is sitting next to me. Brother Mike is top left. My daughter Patricia bottom left. My grandmother in the lacy floral dress lived to be 103. I am grateful the greatest influence of my life, my adoptive mother in the white jacket, was able to share this experience.
My sister, Deborah, is not here. She mysteriously disappeared before she was one year old.
I didn’t even know you existed until shortly before this picture was taken. I spent the first half of my life searching for my family. I am now prepared to spend the rest of my life searching for you. Don’t worry. If you knew me you would know I NEVER give up. I am finding more clues. I am hot on the trail. I am going to find you at lightning speed.
