Speechless...

For those of you that don't know, not only am I an adoption attorney but I was also adopted. I have searched long and hard to try and find my birthparents and have had no luck. I just received a phone call that left me speechless. In fact it took me so by surprised that I had to ask the person to let me call them back. The relevant portion of the very short phone call was:

"Is this Scott? Scott my name is _____. I am doing some research and found out that my mother lived in a home for unwed mothers [the same one my birthmom lived in] and gave birth to a baby boy around [my birth date] and was forced to give him up for adoption..."

I had to end the conversation right there, getting a number to call her back. My emotions are running right now. Not sure if I am ready to call her back.

Oh my!!! I had chills run all through me as I read this. As an adoptive mom who has been blessed to have met one of my daughter's birth family (this was an international closed adoption), I cannot even begin to express what a wonderful opportunity that was. Now, my daughter has had a lot of additional "stuff" to work through, but I'm pretty sure, overall, it was a good experience. I hope you will return that phone call.

Scott....all I have to say is that your steps are ordered of the Lord...it's all in God's perfect timing that you received that call. I will be praying for you as you process all the emotion that I can't even imagine is in your heart right now. Keep us posted!
