This iReport is part of an assignment:
Have you had an abortion?
A real life story about a boy with dreams that come true. He finds his biological mother through a mystery of miracles.
I put investigative skills acquired from years of working in law enforcement to the test and coupled them with dogged persistence. The journey to finding my missing heritage made me travel to small towns in Colorado, created new relationships that continue today, and revealed new perspectives to me about my life.
The most significant outcome of my search has been that of reuniting a mother and son. It took the desire and determination of a man who was searching and the courage of a mother, who was told that her newborn had died, to put the pieces of an incomplete life together.What follows is the heart-warming story of how I found my biological mother and siblings. I am now creating relationships with a new family: four sisters and a brother who were unknown to me for almost fifty-four years.I hope my story provides some insight into the process of reuniting family members while emphasizing how it is and can be the beginning of new and fulfilling relationships that may be thought to be improbable.
