What do you do? [Jul. 31st, 2005|11:10 pm]

When you go digging for information...and you're really not expecting to find it. But you do. And there it is. Staring you in the face.

It's a can of worms I don't want to open at this point.

I now know my son's full name. The son I gave up almost 14 years ago. Wow.

No, there's no question. I'd known his first name and his sister's first name. Found the birth records for 1991. Found the name and birth date. Went back 2 years and found his sisters name. Same surname. Couldn't really be coincidence I don't think.

Anyhow. There it is. I'm doing nothing with it. Not now.

But jesus it caught me by surprise.

Wow... yeah I don't know if I could leave that alone either. Do what you feel is right, though.

Holy crap..

been wondering how long till you were going to look in to that

Kind of sucks that you either have to get permission or wait 4 years to get a hold of him. But at least you know what you know

Oh, it wasn't a totally closed adoption. But I got busy with going on with life and I'm sure they got busy, too. I've known his first name and the first name of his sister and mom and dad all these years.

I look at it periodically. I'm not currently feeling a strong need to show up on their doorstep.

He's about to turn 14. Morgan is getting into that pre-teen phase. Think it would be potentially bad timing.

If I wanted to call his mom, I could. Dunno how she would react. But I'm not looking to reclaim him, if that makes any sense.

This is one choice I made in life that couldn't have felt more right. No regrets.
