Forced Adoption: My brother was taken away from my parents. Now I want to find it
Length = 53cm
I was about 10 when I remembered asking Mom what the date was on the back of the book. Over the years, I continued to inquire about it. There was always a response like “Oh, it’s a book I was given and the date was already there”, or the response would change to “It’s just a special date, it didn’t not important”.
I don’t know why I was so curious, but I just couldn’t let go. I just knew it had to mean something.
I was 16 or 17 when I had a big fight with my mom. I think I was in a rebellious phase of life, trying to find my bearings in the big world and adjusting to the knowledge that I would never have my dad around. It was tough as a teenager, especially knowing he wouldn’t be around for the big milestones in my life. It was during this argument that I brought up the date again and in the heat of the moment mom told me I had a brother. Not only that I had a brother, but that he was a full brother of my mother and my father.
My parents stayed together and ended up having me, which seemed all the more cruel because they weren’t allowed to keep their son.
I want to know if he had a good life, if he had a family, and I want to see what he looks like.
Despite the uncertainties, for my part, I would like to know that he is safe and sound. I want to know if he had a good life, if he had a family, and I want to see what he looks like. My emotions are still mixed as I fear he doesn’t even know about his adoption so I’m still torn by the realities of finding him but I know just like the date in the book I can never let this go go until I know more.
