I have been searching for my relatives for quite sometime now, but unfourtanitly I have had no luck.
My story is really complicated but I will try to explain it and try to make this post short.
My mother met a man in Ohio in 1972, his name was David Wallen, he was 18 at the time and my mother was 21 (her name being Betty Klett). My mother had moved in with David Wallen, his father Robert Wallen and Davids sister Cathy Wallen. I think they lived in a town called Youngstown, but I am not certain about that.
My mother became pregnant with David's child in 1972 and she became frightened on how he would react so instead of her telling him she fled to California without telling anyone she was pregnant and never contacted him or his family again, she married another man a month before Davids child was born.
That child was me and I was born on August 25th 1973. I wasn't told about my paternal family until I was 13 years old and I have been desperate since to find them. The father that I knew my whole life passed away several years ago so that makes me even more desperate to find my family, its like finding where I belong in life. I would also like to meet the man that my mother says I look like.
All I know about the Wallens is that David and Robert done costruction work which caused them to travel quite a bit, but they did have other family in Ohio because my mother remembers meeting them once but she doesn't remember any names. If I can remember any more I will post more messages on here, but I don't know much about them.
I would sure appreciate any help any one can give me on finding my family.
