Sought & Found


We want to hear from you!!
  Please let us know when you find your friend or loved one! Everyone likes to hear about successful endings to other peoples searches. After all, they have been reading your messages daily and have been wondering whatever happened to you! Besides, if you don't tell us, your message will stay with us for a very long time! Unfortunately, most of the time, the only time we hear from you again is when you try to answer someone else's message and the e-mail address is bad!

We appreciate your telling us when you find your missing person so we can remove your message, but we prefer to put stories in here from those who have said how they found their missing person.  Even if we didn't help you, your successful reunions will help and encourage others.  If you have a story you want included here, just write to comments@the-seeker.com and tell us HOW you found them..


Here is what some of our viewers have said:


A few months back I posted on your registry (Ad # 11207) while trying to find my birthmom. A wonderful lady who lives not too far from my home found my posting and started corresponding with my via e-mail and later by phone. She wanted to help me with my search. She said that these things interested her very much and that she had helped a friend find her birthmom.
That wonderful lady was successful this week. Not only did she find my birthmom but she had her to call me and last night we talked for 4 hours. We can't wait to meet for lunch and to spend a day together just catching up. She cried and told me that she never stopped loving me and is anxious for us to get to know each other.
I feel so fortunate to have found her and for her to have accepted me as she has.
I am 45 years old and was afraid that whenever I found her it would be too late and that I may have waited too long to search.
Don't give up on your search.

Please remove ad #23137 re: Bruce Cameron. Found him after 30 years by way of SSDI search of the names of his deceased parents, which led to the name of his hometown in Michigan. With that information was able to get obituary notice for his father from the town librarian and although it was from 1974 and Bruce's location was not given, was able to get name and town of older sister. Searched online for her address and phone number which were easily found. Phone and snail mail contact has been made with her and she has contacted him. Awaiting his decision about whether or not he wants to make contact with his biological son. Found that he lives approximately 60 miles from my home!! To those of you still searching, never give up! Use this site and every other search mode available until you find who you are looking for and then,when your search is over, help someone else with theirs. If we all help each other, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished!

I somehow didn't think I would be writing this soon - but I found my bfather a couple of days ago and called him yesterday. The circle of my life is complete as I have
located both sides of my bfamily. I am so grateful for your web site and the assistance it provides to adoptees. Thanks again for all the hard work and effort.
When asked how she found them:
I am in San Francisco and my bfather and his family are in Cincinnati, OH. I found my bmother's family in April 1998 and they are on the east coast. I am not sure when I
will get to see any of them.
Since I was adopted in San Francisco through the Dept of Social Services - I petitioned the court for my adoption records. Once I received my file - I had all the names,
DOB, etc - from that point I used database searches to locate them. All in all the search took me about 5-6 weeks to locate everyone.

I am SO happy that you sent me an email about the message I posted on
your site! I have been looking for it for a month, but for some reason
it doesn't come up under "Seeking Adopted Child" and I had to go back to
Jan 1, 1997, even though I posted the message in Jan or Feb of '98.
I've been trying to get back to The Seeker for two reasons: My daughter
wants to read the message that was responsible for our reunion; and I
want to post a 'Found' message as encouragement to all those still
looking. A searcher in San Diego, California, Luanne Pruesner, saw my
message and contacted me the same day. She found my daughter's name on
the California Birth Index. With that and her birth date, a search
company in Texas (PBN Reunion Bureau) did a first name search and there
was only one match -- my daughter! For $39 I had her married name,
address and phone number. We have had our reunion already and talk
online or by email every day.
My message number is 18871. I appreciate the updating you are doing as
well as giving me the chance to find my message on Seeker again!
Thanks again for everything you did, and still do. From both of us --
you have helped make our lives complete.
Maxine Frantz, and daughter!


I received a long and detailed e-mail from you. I will tell you Message No.
#19733, Maria Gendece, I was searching birth mom and have recently found
her. You can put me on you found list for inspiration. I went through the
internet less than a month ago and entered my information on every free
site I could find. I received a letter from a lady who said she was a
volunteer searcher and gave me all theinformaiton I need. I am not sure
what site she found me in. I thank you and you rsite and people like you
and her who care about us. It is possible to beat the system!!

Hi! I have the most wonderful news to share with you. My Reg. No. is: 23030
and I do have an update for you. I have located my half-brother, Bill
Willingham, in Moore, Oklahoma, and my full-sister, Wrenette Patterson, in
Tulsa, Ok. The Lord has allowed me the opportunity to fly back to Oklahoma,
from Anchorage, Alaska, and spend 10 wonderful days with my sister and
brother. We were able to go back to our place of birth and have full closure
and know that we never have to go back there again. Our brother, Bill, and his
wife, Stella, accompanied us on our journey to the past, and we could not have
asked for two more kind, loving, and compassionate family members. They
embraced us with open arms, and allowed us the time that we needed at our
birthplace to put our past behind. We just wanted you to hear our story and
know that with God, "All things are possible." My sister and I are looking
forward to continuing our relationship. My 12-year old daughter, Kayli, and I
will be traveling to Seattle, WA., to meet our niece, Angela, and to spend a
week with she and her mother. Wreni is so excited to meet my daughter and I am
equally as excited to meet Angie. We can look forward to a life filled with
more laughter and love because our reunion was made a reality. We found each
other through the Praise Broadcast Network's recommendation of private
investigator, Claudia Rutherford. She and her husband found my sister's last
known residence, and I was able to find her phone number, via the internet,
with friends in Oklahoma. The Anchorage Daily News did a front-page story of
our reunion in the Saturday, April 18th, 1998, newspaper. Just wanted you to
hear our success story. Wreni and I were both able to cope with our past
because of God's love and care of us through the years. We are so thankful
that we can share the rest of our lives together. "To God be the glory, great
things He hath done!"
Sincerely,
Shirley Cross


Hi, this is Miranda and I am writing to tell you that my sister and I
found our mother! Actually, she called us. We wrote to the MVA of
Florida and got her driver's record and from that we got her last
address. With this address we went to a database and got the phone
number for that address. We called this number and we got a hold of a
couple our mother had stayed with. He said that she still kept in touch
and took down our names and number. That was over two months ago and we
had pretty much forgotten about him, but then she called us last Sunday!
She is at my house right now. She flew up for a week. Oh, and she also
put us in touch with my brother, whom I haven't seen since I was nine!
So I guess it's safe to say that you can cancel my add. The number is:
19592. Thanks for everything,
Miranda.


Dear Relatively Seeking Web Master,
I am very proud to announce that you may remove my name from your
Relatively Seeking web site as I have found my birthmother!!!
I have been listed under New York, 1969, for over a year now, and although
I'm not sure if our match can be directly attributed to this registry, I
must thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn and share with other
triad members the trials and tribulations, as well as joys! of searching.
Peace and good fortune be with you,

Ad No. 10348. We found my sons older brother. They haven't seen each other yet but speak to each other all the time on the telephone and get along like they had been raised together. My son lives in Oregon and his brother lives in Alabama. He found out that he has a lot of half brothers and sisters. It was one of his half sisters that contacted me after reading the ad here. Thank you so much for having this site available.

You may delete message #18854. We have just recently found my husband's
family. I searched the family's last name on www.whowhere.com and sent
letters to everybody who's name came up. A couple day's later we had a
message on our answering machine that this guy thought that he was the
guy we were looking for. Sure enough it was my husband's uncle, he is my
husband's only living relative. We have yet to meet with him, we are
planning to meeting this June. Thanks!!!!

I've been searching for over 12 years for my birthmother and finally found
her. I can't say the specifics of how I found her, but I can say that I did
it by searching the web and emailing anybody and everybody that was either
searching themselves, or had already found who they were looking for. I was
amazed at how many people believed in what I was doing, and wanted to help.
I really didn't believe I'd find her because I had no information and no
names. However, my searching and emailing payed off in the end and within a
couple of weeks, I found her. I never would have been able to do it
without the ability to reach so many people. Get on the internet and seach
every adoption and search site you can find. It will pay off !!!

Born 3/3/67


Just wanted to first say thanks for a wonderful web site. I
found my birth mother last weekend only to learn she had
died in 1977. However, since she was in the military - I
posted a query in that section and found someone who had
been stationed in Hawaii and lived in the barracks with my
mother. They uploaded a 40 year old picture and emailed it
to me. With the help of other adoptees I located her family
this weekend and to my delight - I have a younger brother
who I have been talking to twice a day since we make initial
contact. I regret, I will never meet my mother - but I am
enjoying having a brother, a grandmother, aunt and uncle -
though them I am learning who about my mother.
Thanks again - I am happily reunited with my bmother's
family.

Please remove my search message from you list the ad no. is Ad Number:
15807 .
I was contacted thru the USS FLOYD B. PARKS DD884 ASSOCIATION ABOUT A
REUNION AND THEY HAD HIS ADDRESS.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP

I entered an item Seeking Navy Veterans #s 21930 and 21932 concerning Joseph C. Smith of VP26.
He was an AD1; but, he deceased and obtained the rank of CDR. Fortunately I was able to contact his family through a US Navy locator service. Please remove this item and one under Military Seeking.

My original ad #2477 was placed in desperation; my followup ad #3822
was placed to announce my joyous reunion with my first born son, Nick.
Although my search was not enhanced by the 'net, it certainly became a
lifeline for me, providing helpful hints, support, and similar stories
to carry me through a confusing time.
Our reunion really began because I nagged the adoption agency nearly to
death to pass along medical history to my son; after months of hearing
'we'll send it in a couple of weeks', they finally contacted my son and
he agreed to accept the information. The letter I sent included our
phone # and address in the event he was willing to have contact. One
month later he called, and the following month my other two sons and I
met Nick and his wife Denise at a B&B in Boston and had a wondrous
reunion!
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of doing a bit of family
medical history research! It certainly is easier than trying to get
courts to open records.
We continue to have a lovely relationship, and call each other every few
weeks (he lives 500 miles from here); we've gotten together 3 times
since October '96, and plan to visit again in June. For the first time
in my life, I have a whole heart.
Please keep looking for your family! EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO THEIR
GENETIC AND MEDICAL HISTORY!!! Even if you are a birth parent who does
not want a reunion, you have the responsibility to provide this
information to your offspring. Keep up the good work, Seeker!

I found my birthmother's name, and that she is deceased, so I will no longer need rto
run my message that I posted, any longer.
Thankyou,
Vicci


Please remove my message. I thank you for you your service even
though I found my high school sweetheart whom I hadn't seen since 1964,
through Classmates.com. Sandy & I are talking via e-mail. It is a real
thrill to be able to talk to her again & to know that she is alive &
well. We now have time talk about some of the things that as teenagers
we never seemed to finish or bring to closure. This was ad # 17655.
Thanks a lot,
Rex


Ad # 17540 you can delete.
I found my friend through contact with another friend.
Tim B. Lee


I am very happy to say that you can remove ad # 17448. I found my half
sister by a stroke of luck. She wrote our dad a letter last week saying
that she grew up and she was sorry for everything. I now have the
chance to develop the relationship with my sister that I have always
wanted.

James Paulus was found by his older brother in Flordia about two months
ago. We knew he ws in Hawaii. The internet was used but I don't know which
service was used. Two people knew my nephew and informed him that his
brother was looking for him. I've bookmarked you site. Hopefully we won't
have to look for missing relatives again.
Thanks,
glov


Please remove my ad so that others may have use of this valuable
space.
I did not find her as a result of my ad in your site. She had no access to the internet at all.
My search lasted 25 years in total. Through those years I bugged and
begged family for information, what little I collected I confirmed and
expanded on. Most of my le-work was done through the Toronto Research
Library. There I was able to trace the "adoptive" family right up
through to 1985. (After being reunited my twin confirmed all the
information I had collected). I had applied across Canada for non-id.
None could be found. No adoption record could be found. Applied for her
birth certificate and obtained it...therefore no adoption. My next step
would have been a trip to Montreal this summer. As it was through one of
the adoption lists I had joined an 'angel' sent me the information I
needed in order to contact my twin sister. Who this person was, I do not
know. But obviously they had access to things which I did not, as they
had located my twin. I then wrote a first contact letter, which we
delivered to her apt. (only an hour away), and she phoned me two hours
later. Next morning we met face-to-face. The whole family is still in
shock. No one thought I'd ever find her. Had it not be for the list
angel, I was only months away from tracking her down. So either way, at
some point this year we would have been reunited.
Needless to say we are both very happy, as is the whole family.

I found my husband's biological father last August. It was not through
here but through the Bigfoot directory. We have spoken to him on the
phone a few times but have not met him. My husband is still debating
meeting him
Pamela


I ACTUALLY FOUND MY FRIEND BY WRITING TO HER OLD ADDRESS.
AND WHEN I SAY OLD, I MEAN 13 YEARS OLD! IT WAS THE LAST KNOWN ADDRESS I HAD OF HER. IT WAS HER PARENTS HOUSE.
AND I WAS TOLD BY HER MOM THAT THEY WERE THINKING OF SELLING IT. AND SHE TOLD ME THAT NEARLY 13 YEARS AGO. SO, I NEVER BOTHERED TO WRITE MY FRIEND AT THAT ADDRESS. I JUST WAITED FOR HER TO WRITE ME OR CALL ME WITH HER NEW ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.
BUT, UNFORTUNATELY I HAD MOVED DURING THAT TIME. AND WE JUST LOST CONTACT.
WELL, IT TURNED OUT THAT HER PARENTS NEVER EVEN SOLD THE HOUSE. THEY EVEN STAYED IN IT, THEMSELVES, FOR A FEW MORE YEARS AFTER THAT. AND THEY ACTUALLY HAD RENTED IT OUT TO THEIR SON AND DAUGHTER IN LAW. AND THEY HAD BEEN THE ONES LIVING IN IT, ALL THESE YEARS.
SO, WHEN I DECIDED TO WRITE A LETTER EXPLAINING MYSELF AND MY STORY, I JUST ASSUMED THAT SOMEONE ELSE HAD BOUGHT THE HOUSE, AND WAS LIVING THERE. MAYBE EVEN A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT OWNERS. YOU NEVER KNOW.
  BUT, LUCKY FOR ME, IT WAS MY FRIENDS BROTHER THAT WAS LIVING THERE. AND HE CALLED HIS MOTHER IMMEDIATELY, AS SOON AS HE SAW WHO THE LETTER WAS FROM. AND THEN HIS MOM CALLED HER DAUGHTER, MY VERY BEST AND DEAREST FRIEND, MELISSA.
I HOPE THAT I HAVEN'T BORED OR CONFUSED YOU TOO MUCH WITH THIS STORY. AND EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T ACTAUALLY FIND MY FRIEND THROUGH YOUR SERVICE, I REALLY DO APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT I ATLEAST HAD A CHANCE AT FINDING HER, THROUGH
YOU. AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MY STORY.
I LOVE MELISSA LIKE A SISTER. I NEVER HAD A SISTER. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY CLOSE. I LOVE HER DEARLY. AND, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT'S AS IF 13 YEARS NEVER EVEN WENT BY! WE JUST "PICKED UP" RIGHT WHERE WE LEFT OFF. EXCEPT, WE HAD A  WHOLE LOT OF CATCHING UP TO DO!
I HAVE ALREADY FLOWN TO DENVER, COLORADO TO SEE HER FOR 10 DAYS. MY HUSBAND PUT ME ON A PLANE AND TOLD ME TO GO AND ENJOY MYSELF! WHAT A SWEETHEART, HUH?
THANK YOU AGAIN. I THINK YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL SERVICE. VERY UNIQUE. AND, I HAVE READ ALOT OF YOUR SUCCESS STORIES. SO, I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE HELPED ALOT  OF PEOPLE. GOD BLESS YOU!

I received your message and wanted to let you know I found my birth parents,
brother and sister in October of last year. It has been a wonderful
reunion!
Carol


Mine was a unique experience (as if every adoption isn't unique). My
birthfather's sister arranged my adoption to her best friend and he was
never even aware of it until I was 20 years old.
I grew up within miles of both birthparents and even knew many of my birth
relatives as a young child.
My birthmom and I met for the first time on her Birthday last year (it's
only 11 days before mine!) After spending 33+ years apart.
In the beginning of April of last year I sent all my information to a paid
searcher that I was referred to from the internet. Then I promptly left on vacation.
We came home a couple of days early from our vacation and found a message
from the searcher on our answering machine. She had located my Birthmom
within days of my providing her with the information I had.

(Editor's Note: After telling her adoptive mother of her intentions, which was well received, she placed "THE" call.)
...Finally I bit my cheek and asked, "Did you place a baby girl for adoption in
June of 1963?"
"Yes" she replied.
Crying now, I replied, "I think I might be that child."
I broke down into a blubbering wreck. I explained to her that I knew this
was a shock to her. That I would love to talk to her more but that it would
be her decision. She had my numbers and she could call me if she wanted to
let me into her life.
I then got off the phone as quickly as possible.
It was the longest 2 days of my life. She called back, my husband excitedly
announced that it was HER.....We talked for two hours and exchanged e-mail
addresses etc...
We are so much alike it is unbelievable.
Almost all of our likes and dislikes about everything in life are the same,
from foods to music to authors to hobbies. We both do Stained Glass. This
is not a run of the mill hobby.
We even fix the same things for Dinner with out talking to each other about
it. We get sick at the same times and we say the same things at the same
time. People tell us we act more like twins than Mother and Daughter. We
both even work in the computer industry!
I have a wonderful relationship with both Birthmom and Birthdad and most of my
siblings.
It has been a wonderful year.
Kathleen


We placed an ad (#13337) seeking my birth son who was born on Sept 4,
1966. We have found him and a reunion is scheduled very soon. For those
of you still seeking - you are in our prayers always. We are so
thankful for the miracle of finding a lost child.
My son was found by a private agency. Since the Oklahoma records are closed it
took a special group and money to get the information needed. My son's adoptive
parents had been very open with him. He had all non identifying information. He
was eager to know about his roots. It was a wonderful reunion.
Gerald Young


Please remove add #13304 As the people in question have been reunited! Although the Web and this site did not contribute to the ultimate solution, it contributed to peace of mind during the search. The solution was provided by private seekers with the search initiated by both parties. Thank you for maintaining this sight and giving all of us hope.
Allan D. Pratt


Please remove my ad # 10844. I found my birth mother, and we have been
reunited. It was and is wonderful.
I engaged a searcher who found her in about 30 minutes! The cost was
about $300. My mom lives about 3 hours away from me, and has for 48
years. She was told that I had died shortly after being adopted, so she
never looked for me. She said she had always hoped that I was alive,
but did not know how to look for me. We are both so happy to have found
each other, and my mom said she wished I had found her sooner, she is
now 68 years old. We are meeting tomorrow at the beach for a 10 day
reunion/vacation. She now has a son, daughter-in-law and two
grandchildren that she never thought she would have!! Thanks again for
your service, and good luck to all the others who are still searching.

I faintly remembered, as a little girl, seeing him in a referee outfit at a high school football
game. I knew this was Barstow High School. Through one of the sites in your
Site Seeking section, I found a site for Barstow High School, e-mailed the prinicipal
there, and told him who I was looking for and why. He was nice enough to
ask other teachers who had been there since the 70's. One teacher
remembered that Steve was was a teacher back then and was now employed with
the Apache Junction, AZ school district. I then looked through an
information site for a Shaw in that town and found one that I assume was
him. How many high school teachers named S. Shaw can there be in Apache
Junction, AZ? I sent him a note, but haven't heard back, don't really
expect to, really just wanted to send one. He's probably in shock. It's
amazing what you can do over the internet. So, although I didn't track him
down through my message, I did do it through other sites from SiteSeeking.
What surprised me most of all was that the high school principal took the
time to acknowledge my message, speak to other teachers, find out info and
e-mail me back. The other teacher even said I could call him there and he
would try to help me out. People can be really good, that's easy too
forget sometimes.

You can delete message # 11303.
I found my mother! It didn't happen as a direct result of your site;
I used a database to access women born the same year as she was with the
same first name and managed to pick her out of several hundred because of a
few "coincidences". I am so psyched! She is as happy as I am. Thank you
for running your search site and letting me place an ad for free. Even
though I didn't find her because of it, I believe that the energy
I put out to do it came back to me in the form of success anyway. Thank
you for being a part of that opportunity!
gemmoon@brinet.com


I wanted to let you know that you can take ad # 11026 off of the board. My
birth father had posted it and I now have contact with him. Thank you so much
I have been looking for 2 years and have posted on many sites.  I just happened
to have found this one the other night and found his message.
Thank You so much,
Teresa Henderson


I want to let you know that, though I did not
find my friend through your service, I think it's the greatest! I have
advised several others to come and check it out, and I shall continue to
avail myself of your wonderful site often! You may remove ad #20017 -the
search for Ellie is over.
Thank you,
TC


This is a condensed version of the story. It was and still is a very
emotionally traumatic experience for all of us. It has a fairytale ending,
but still, the many pains of separation are rekindled. They will have to be
sorted out and dealt with over time.
I found the first son, (his name is Matthew, he is not my birth son) at
Birthquest on the net. We sought verification through the adoption agencies
and hospitals used. Eventually, we were convinced that we had found the
wrong persons. This process took about a month and was like riding an
emotional rollercoaster. (It was hard to believe, as upon exchanging
pictures we looked so much alike - and wanting something so badly can
sometimes distort ones perception of things.)
The lady at the adoption agency must have sensed my despair, and gave me the
name of a lady she said could probably help me in my search. She was a
professional people finder. This lady suggested that I contact the Soundex
Reunion Registery before I went any further.
When I contacted them, they said that my son was not registered there, but
that a woman had registered in 1986 looking for her son born on that same
day, in the same city. I had copies of Matthew's birth certificate that he
had e-mailed me. Upon comparing numbers, they assured me that we had a
match. She was Matthew's mother. I contacted Matthew, gave him the good
news. He contacted Soundex, did the paperwork required and was talking to
his mother that night. (Dejavous - I had to give my son away again)
At this point, I nearly quit. I didn't feel right about paying someone to
pry into my son's life and track him down for me, but the frustration of
trying to find him on my own was too much for me to cope with. Matthew
convinced me that I had to keep trying; that I should give my son the right
to choose if he wanted to persue a relationship.
He felt so strongly about this, that I hired a lady recommended by the
Soundex people. For a small fee, she was able to do what I had always been
told could never be done. Those records that were supposed to be sealed away
forever were there at her disposal and in a matter of hours, she was able to
tell me my son's name, his last known location, and enough other information
that eventually (it took a couple more weeks) I was able to make contact
with him. We spoke by phone for the first time at 3:00 AM on July 30th,
1997. He flew from Detroit, Michigan to Bangor, Maine where we met on July
30th at 10:00 PM. Absence does make the heart grow fonder - and 30 years of
absence grows alot of love. My son is totally awesome.
I was only allowed to see and hold my son twice after he was born. The first
time he was 1 month old. The County Adoption Services arranged the meeting
in an attempt to get me to sign the adoption papers. The meeting took place
in a small room with a steel formica topped table and hard steel chairs; no
windows and the door was kept shut. I was allowed to hold him for
approximately 30 minutes. The second time I was allowed to see him he was
three months old. The circumstances were the same. I was 16 years old. I
could have left him in a state run orphanage for 1-1/2 years until I was
legally old enough to take him, or I could sign the papers to give up my
parental rights while he was still young enough to be placed in a good home.
God willing, I will never have to give him up again.

Thank you for the email. I had forgotten which places I put my
information to locate my birth parents. Well I found them by sending out
letters to all the people with the same last name. In two days I got a
phone call from a person who was doing a genealogy research and he new
of the family. He filled me in with some of the family history, and
pinpointed which of the people I wrote to was my Father. He said " Boy I
would like to be a fly on the wall when he reads that letter".
My birth father wrote to me about 20 days later. And after he saw a
picture of me he said" You are definitely my daughter!! So I have been
writhing to him and learning about his family.
Thank you again. you just never know what contact will payoff.

neice and nephew, and a half brother.... *

We found him!!!!!!!! :-) Somone (a relatives friend) found an address for
him that they had from about 30 years ago so we wrote him a letter. He
still lived there! As soon as he received the letter he called my Mom on
the phone. It was teh very first time they spoke. Right away he came to
the US and they met! It was great!
Thank you very much.

I found my daughter on 2/4/98 thanks to a very aggressive and successful
searcher in Ohio. Just wanted to pass along his address to help those who
gave birth or were born in Ohio. Write to: ohioadoptee@juno.com
I have had the most wonderful reunion with my 29 year old daughter and I found
that she only lives 90 miles away from me in Massachusetts.
Thanks to the Seeker for providing a valuable service, too.

Today is the one year celebration of my reunion
with my lost birthdaughter. One year ago today we spoke for the very
first time.
Our reunion is still going strong and smooth and full of love. I
still have a link to The Seeker on my website, and invite you to send
any Florida seekers to my pages for more information.
In appreciation of all you do.

thru the internet.

I found you my old college love. You slipped out of my life back on June 11, 1979 at 3:00 pm. I walked through dark lonely years, carried a 19 year romance alone and wondered what had happened to you. As I married, I thought of you, as my children were born, I thought of you. You were with me in memory and I wanted to find you so I searched. It was just two weeks ago that I found you. You called me from out of the blue. I was tongue tied and filled with happiness. So many years have slipped past our fingers. I was glad to tell you how much I loved you and to tell you that I still do. You helped close the chapter which could not end because of the undying question, "Why did you go?" Thank you and thanks to all who helped us find each other again.  She and I are friends again. Adrian Gonzalez Please remove 7803 7804 my search for Amelia Sanchez is over. We will have lunch this week for the first time in 19 long years. :) 3/2/98
