Two blogs in one night... Someone can't go to sleep.
I have been passively searching for my birth mother- mainly googling her name/ other birth relative's names. I found out what my last name is because someone forgot to blot it out in some of the many pieces of papers I have from my adoption. It also has a family tree on there.
I'm pretty sure I found my (now diseased) birth-grandfather. If your really curious, here is the link.
There is an official way to find her but that would mean I would really have to go through with it. Maybe someday. For now, I'm a creepy stalker.
