Hello to all of my followers. I am hoping that by reblogging this or asking around or commenting with insight of what to do or whatever…I may find what I have been looking for for the past 39 years.
You may not know this, but I was adopted. I was born on June 27, 1973 in Houston TX. My biological mother was 15 at the time with red hair and green eyes. I was adopted from DePelchin children’s home at 9 days old to wonderful parents who, in my belief, have raised me VERY well. BUT..that doesn’t stop me from trying to figure out who my biological parents are!
I have been to the Houston courts 3 different times to ask to have my records opened. Even after all adoption records were made available, the judge would not give me mine. She advised me that there was nothing in the record that could help me in any way. Why she didn’t let me figure that out for myself, I have no clue. The last time I went to court, I was pregnant with Little Man. I was 31 years old. I had a letter from my adoptive parents, a letter from my doctor, and was VERY curious about my biological medical history. It’s been another 8 years and I was told yet again NO. It’s VERY frustrating!
So here’s the deal. If anyone knows of a woman that was 15 years old in 1973 and had a kid whom I’m guessing her parents made her give up for adoption (or maybe she wanted to, who knows) and lived in the Houston area in 1973 please help me. I am not trying to get another parent, but wouldn’t you like to know who gave birth to you? In the records that I received from DePelchin (and I have NO clue where they are now – my parents shared them with me as a teen), my biological mother had red hair and green eyes. I don’t remember what it said about her height and weight. My supposed father was American Indian and was over 6 feet tall with brown hair and brown eyes. I don’t know if that is true or a fabrication to protect the actual father or if she was raped. It doesn’t matter to me, I would just like to know her. I would just REALLY like to know my biological mother. It’s almost been 40 years so she would be in her 50′s now. I would have no idea where she lives but I know when I was born, it was in Houston, TX.
Since I was adopted at 9 days old, my birth certificate was changed to my adoptive parents. So that is not helpful. I contacted DePelchin and their response to me was: “For $400, you can put a letter in your file in case your mother ever asks.” That’s just crazy! You want me to give you money IN CASE someone ever comes down there and asks??? Really??? So I am depending on the world wide web to help me out. It’s cheaper and if everyone that reads this would repost or comment with ANY information that would be helpful, I will chase down any leads I need to. I was amazed at myself when trolling blogs, I saw a girl that looks so much like me but 10 years younger. So now I am hoping to get some help from all of you.
I just want to know. I am an only child but have always felt like I would have had siblings. I know that’s a strange feeling but I just know in my gut that I do somewhere. Feel free to comment with anything, even the smallest thing, that might be helpful. Even links, as long as you are not asking me to go on Maury Povich or one of those other “talk” shows. I’m not trying to be on TV to have a tearful reunion…I am more of a private person and don’t want to share our first conversation with the world.
