A Birthmother's Journey

This is the journey that begins when the author is a teenager and continues during the reunion with the son she gave up 32 years ago.

Location: Portland, Oregon, United States

I am the natural mother of two sons one, age 32 and the other age 18 and stepmother of two sons.I had to start this after my oldest son found me in July of this year after 32 years. It is one heck of a rollercoaster ride but we plan on meeting face to face in November.

We Move to Oregon

In 2003, we moved to Oregon with Michael's youngest son Dustin. Patrick stayed in Washington State with his dad and step-mother so he could finish school. I was still searching. A few young men called but each time, something wasn't right. So I continued my search.

I was busy visiting Patrick twice a month, paying for it with my disability check. I had been getting sick a lot and had to slow down on my searching.

Then I was in a research study using behavior modification to control seizures....it worked!
