Maybe I should do that,,,drop the Rootsweb a note.
A few years ago I noticed a post on Rootsweb from a man 36yo that was adopted.
I was 36yo at the time and just gone though a divorce and thought I could help him.
I did the searching and showed him where to look.
Within 2 weeks he rang me and told me he left a message on an answering machine for who he thought was his mother..
By 5pm that might I had his MOTHER phoning me offering me money!! (he had paid private detectives and so had she over the years and NOTHING)
She had left his dad, remarried, had 2 other children but always told them about the son she adopted out...His 1/2 siblings always knew about him and had been looking for him for years...
Was fantastic to see it all work out...For years I received emails, cards etc from them.
I am now 45yo so it's been almost 10yrs,,,but since then have done a few others but nothing more memorable...
