In Reply to: MISSING MOTHER FOUND AFTER 53 YEARS by NANCY RIVERA of 2125

Dear Nancy;
You did nothing wrong. It is right that you should approach slow, and make sure the person you are looking for "Wants" to be "FOUND" sometimes women dissappear for very GOOD reasons! My sister's daughter that she gave up for adoption looked for her for 10 years, in that time, my sister asked me how she could go about finding her daughter. They have met, my neice wrote a very nice letter stating who she was, and how to contact her. She stated she understood if my sister didn't want to be found. She enclosed pictures of herself and her children. My sister was over joyed, and they now get together frequently. It isn't always that way. My mother-in-law was given up as a child. Her father tried to contact her as an adult, and she spit on him. His wife left him for another man, and she got rid of her children. This happened during the depression, but my mother-in-law was and is very unforgiving. you can only help some people. Other's, no matter what you do, it will be wrong. Your 1/2 brother should be thanking you, as you did get him and his mother together. He is probably being hatefull to you for something that slighted him when he was young, and he is fesstering over it. You have friends out here who understand. Keep your head up, and be proud you did the right thing by his mother. Cathee
