I just wanted to thank all the search angels once again for helping my dream to come true. Me and my daughter Danielle have a good relationship now after 18 years of seperation. I have a gift that I would like to thank u and G'S Registry for making this possible. Once again thank u. Sincerely Lynda S FOUND #2993My father and his younger brother, who was adopted at birth, have met for the first time after 65 years! We learned that my new-found uncle had been looking for his birth family for much of his adult life. Thank you to Gary and the search angels for all you do. Pam W. FOUND #2981Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to formally thank you and inform you that with your contribution and unconditional help, I have connected with my birth mother. We spoke last night on the phone and will meet soon. This is a completely surreal experience and I wanted to know what a positive and everlasting impact you have made on my life. Brady R FOUND #2936HI Gary, I just had to let you know that I have indeed found my birth mother and it was ALL due to the information your wonderful search angels gave me. We have been talking, had our first meeting and continue to talk on a weekly basis. Finding out I was adopted at such a late time in my life was very overwhelming but your people truly made the ending magical. So many people were offering to help but for an enormous fee. Your Angels from the goodness of their hearts brought me together with my birth mother and new family. I will be forever greatful.. Thank you, Marlena G FOUND #2932My birth sister was searching something completely different and found me through your site. The day I have been praying for since I was 12 has finally happened. Thank you so much for all the work you and all your volunteers do. I appreciate it with all my heart. Deborah J FOUND #2919I had been looking for my biological grandmother for two years. I found her with some help from a search angel online. For those searching in PA, I specifically found my father's birthname in a docket appearance log found in our local county courthouse. There is not much information, but most entries have the town listed in which the adoptee was living at the time the petition was filed. My dad grew up in a small town, so there were not many and I used his date of birth as a guide. I then wrote to the judge who currently sits on the Orphans Court sharing with him all the research that I had done up to this point, the name I had found and the reasons why I thought this could be my dad's mother, and he confirmed it!!!Now, onto the GOOD stuff. We met his mom about a month after making contact with her family. She had been young and unwed and her mom told her that she was giving up the baby for adoption. She had no choice in the matter. She had been especially upset because she never got to see nor hold him. We learned that my dad has 10 more brothers and sisters!!! This experience has been a true blessing for all involved. Even though his family is HUGE, they were so excited to welcome more. And we are not only happy to meet her and get to know her, we are thankful that she is able to begin the process of letting go of the guilt she has carried for almost 60 years. She had never told her kids nor her husband. She has carried this secret for far too long. Michele L. Zook FOUND #2908Thanks to gsadoptionregistry I found my daughter. She's 41 has had a wonderful life and excellent education. Things she probably wouldn't have been able to get from me. Thank you very much. Michele N FOUND #2897My brothers and I met today it was a good experience. Thank you all so much !!!!! I have waited for that moment for over 30 yrs. God Bless the work you do. Good luck to those of you who still are searching. Cindy S FOUND #2882I am so happy to report that my half sister, who was put up for adoption at birth has been found. I posted several years back and only had her birthdate (which I found through Ancestry.com. I was contacted by several G'S Angels and they gave me the adopted parents last name and her adopted mom's maiden name as well as possible natural children of the adopted parents. We were all from California, and when I was in my 30's my parents,brother and our familes all moved to Arkansas..... well last week I was contacted by my half sister's other adopted brother, Mark B and he was able to confirm information of my sister. It was her, he sent me a picture and she looked like my mom. I was in shock!!!! Here is the miracle of this too...... I had always been looking in California for her.... she was 3 hours away from me in ARKANSAS. I have met her, and her children and my mom has talked to her on the phone and are planning a get together. The sad thing is my sister had a stroke at the age of 38 (7 years ago) and it was so sad to see her in the condition she was in, but I am hopeful for new life and beginnings for all of us. God bless you ALL! I couldn't of ever done this without you. Teresa W FOUND #2876Hi Everyone, I wanted to thank you again for your help and let you know the outcome. We connected with my husband's biological brother a couple of weeks ago. He is the last member of the immediate family left. He had no idea he had an adopted brother until a few moths ago when one of his mom's best friends found out she had lung cancer and did not want to go to her grave with the secret. We have met he and his family and spoken on the phone several times--it has been a wonderful experience and we hope to maintain a relationship with them. Many, many thanks! There are special places in heaven for you all! Melissa FOUND #2869To all it may concern: As of 7:45 this evening, I found my sibling who was put up for adoption 51 years ago! Thank you every single one for the help you provide the little guys like myself! I will keep you updated once we meet face to face, and I will post a reunion story. We live about 3 hours from each other is all! Sincerely, Sheila B FOUND #2850Please update my record to FOUND! Thank you so much to all the angels and to G'S Adoption Registry. Last night Denise (email@example.com) had located and contacted my biological brother I have been looking for (and who has been looking for me for a long time). He sent me his phone number and I talked with him for about an hour. As it turns out I have him, two other brothers and a sister from my birth mother. My birth mother is still alive and he will be making contact with her to possibly setup a phone call or meeting. A lot of my questions were answered, and I cant wait to talk with my other birth siblings and meet them. Words can not express my gratitude to the G'S Adoption Registry Angels. I have exchanged many emails with a lot of you, and I sincerely thank you for your time and effort and support (there were times you guys were the ones that kept me going when I would hit a dead end and wonder if I would ever find my birth family). One more thing I would like to share. I find it amazing within seconds of the start of the phone call I knew it was my brother, I just "had that feeling" and as the conversation unfolded it became clear. Although I had never know I had birth siblings, talking with him was like talking to a old friend. Unexplainable to say the least, but true and very special none the less. Although my adopted family is great and I love them to death, there are things like searching ancestry.com which I could never do. Now I know I have "roots" and it is a very very special feeling to me personally. Thank You all so much for the website and the hours spent helping people who you will never meet to find their birth family. You are truly hero's. Sincerely, 10-13-1970 Male Iowa aka David W FOUND #2848UPDATE: FOUND!!!!!! This is the most wonderful site EVER! I have been looking for my Mother's birth family for about 20 years and with your site, I was able to find our family within days! Thank you! Christi G FOUND #2847I am happy to report that my wonderful search angel found my Birth mom and Birth father. Thank you for this wonderful website because with out it I would still be searching! Beth D FOUND #2844I would like to thank Gary and the whole team for there assistance in helping to find my biological family. On 12-30-2010 I was able to contact my biological sister. The next day I spoke to my brother. Sorry to hear that the parents are deceased. After 46 years of wondering, it all came together. Within about 6 months of your help I was able to have my questions answered and now a peace of mind. Thank You again! You will never be forgotten! Robert H FOUND #2839I cant begin to thank G'S Adoption Registry for helping me complete my search for my birth mother, and sister. It has been a whirwind month and a half with a lot of ups and downs, but - the search angels are great, they never gave up. I was involved as much as I felt comfortable with, and they were ok with that. We found that my birth mother was deceased, but I did reconnect with my sister - this has been a true Christmas miracle !! Keep the faith, because it works. Gayla Carpenter FOUND #2828 We found her thank you so much for your free site it helped bring our family back together:) with love, Ashley FOUND #2825Please update this registry as found. I have been in contact with both birth parents and adoptee. Hopefully a reunion will happen one day. Thanks Denise R FOUND #2820Just wanted to let you know that both of my birthparents have been found & contacted.Thank you for your help in this matter. May your holidays be blessed!Heather M FOUND #2816My search for my adopted cousin is over. Because of your registry, he found me from a posting I listed in 2004. We confirmed our relation by comparing birth certificate information. Today is his birthday, which makes it extra special. Thank you so much! Cynthia W FOUND #2810 Thanks to your site my family found me. I have met my brother and talked either by phone or email with several other family members. Our mother is on her deathbed and incoherent so that was sad but all my questions have been answered. Thanks. Lorrie D FOUND #2809Hello, Your service helped me find my birth mother, and her sister. Unfortunately my mom had passed away before I ever had the chance to meet her. But my birth sister (who I've never met) found me!! And we are talking on the phone, and can't wait to meet! So this is such good news. All because your agency found people for me. THANK YOU SO MUCH. You truly are angels. Thank you so very, very much. I appreciate you and your angels with all my heart.Sincerely, Kim J FOUND #2785Hello everyone! This is Julie M. I finally got to talk to Amy!!! She just about fainted when she got my message on facebook. I guess she didn't think she thought she'd ever hear from me again! She is doing well and we are slowing rebuilding our contact. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! Without all your time and energy, I wouldn't have been able to find her!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! You folks are wonderful!!!! Julie M FOUND #2783I'm so surprised that it only took 2 days....you are, indeed, "Angels"......Many thanks, Charmaine N FOUND #2782Found my half brother and we just met this week. Thanks for the help! What a great service you have done for us all!Julie B FOUND #2776Well, I guess we have found each other.It still boggles my mind how close we were to each other and yet miles apart. Thanks so much for putting this opportunity in our paths.We have spoken on the phone and expect to talk more.I wish others good luck as well. Sue B FOUND #2767I am happy to say my birth sister found me. She was bored at work one day and wondered what would come up if she Googled her birth name. It was your website, with my search information she found. She was searching for 5 minutes, I had been searching for 13 years. Thankyou so much! Carrie L FOUND #2766OH MY GOODNESS....how could I ever thank you all enough??!! I used the number you provided for Jane D and found out SHE IS MY GRANDMOTHER! She told me all about my birth mother, Nancee D, who is alive and living in a Health Care Center. I had been told my birth mother had passed away sometime after I was born. I now know that I have an older sister and brother, who were also adopted, but my grandmother has information on them. And BEST OF ALL, she wants to meet me! I now have to get up the nerve to make arrangements to meet her. I presume that is something you would understand, the distance on a phone is easier than meeting someone in person. I can not wait to find more about the life of my biological family. You have made my dream come true, and now I have a new journey in my life! I can not thank you enough! I pray that you can be of as much assistance to others as you have been for me...now I know why they call you a search "angels"!!Thank you again! Madeline (Sara Teresa Dilks) Shaw FOUND #2765Well I have great news!!!!! I just got off the phone with my Aunt Sue and cousin Tim! You guys did it!!!!!!!! This is the right family. Words cannot express my sincere GRATITUDE to each and every one of you that helped me find my family. I said it last night and I'll say it again ya'll are truly Angels!!!!

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH SEARCH ANGELS!!!1Christie L FOUND #2764Hello I just thought I would let you know I located my birth daughter. She lives in Tennessee. I get to speak with her next week.

I wanted to take a moment and advise you that my beautiful daugher has found me.
Your search angels gave so much of themselves to help me try and locate her, but in just 1 day she found me.
I am so very proud to say that she has thrived and she is doing well.
To say thank you seems so small, but it comes from a very sincere place.
My love and gratitude go to everyone there that helped on my behalf.

FOUND! FOUND! FOUND! CONFIRMED! CONFIRMED! CONFIRMED!
DON'T GIVE UP HOPE.....KEEP ON SEARCHING!!
Today we received confirmation! We found my sister's son, my nephew!
A young man that found my registry emailed me on 9-3. On 9-28 he will be 39 years old. He said he didn't search that hard because his older adopted brother searched and searched, but comes up with nothing but disappointment.
DON'T GIVE UP!
Thanks to all who have given advice, support and search assistance.
Especially you Patty (Tigger)...with all my heart..thank you!!
Rita McAloon at Catholic Charities is Philadephia is wonderful !! God Bless her!

Hi everyone I want to thank everyone who has helped me so far,
I really appreciate your time and I think what you guys do is amazing.
I have some good news to report. I have been very lucky as my half-sister actually contacted me this weekend.
I was still trying to talk to family members to get more information, and it would have been very difficult for me to find her,
so I am grateful that things worked out so well.
Thanks again for your time. ~Stephanie FOUND #2706
You all are AMAZING! Today, I spoke with my Birth Mother, Loretta C for the first time in my life. She took my call and we chatted for about 10 minutes. She verified that she had a baby in August 1969 and she told me how difficult it was for her to give me up. She was so happy to hear that I had done well in my life and that I did not blame her for anything. In fact I thanked her for doing what she did. I gave her my phone number and I told her I would not try to contact her again unless she called me. She said she just needed time to digest all of this but she let me know that I have a brother, 27, and a sister, 30. I told her I would not bother her but I hope she called back because I would love to meet my siblings. We laughed and cried. Anyway, I'm telling you all this because I am so grateful to you and the work that you do. I know not every story works out this way, but it is such a blessing to have you working so hard for those of us who have a missing link in our lives. God Bless You ALL! Thank you again!

Dear Gary and Search Angels: I wanted to let all of you know that I was able to make contact with my birth mother. I sent my form to you on 4-9-2010 and, thanks to Kristin and Emily, you had located her 4-13-2010 [same day as posted]! I wrote her the next day and she wrote me back on the 17th, stating that she had thought of contacting me for many years but had not wanted to disturb my life [which had also been my reservation]. This has been an amazing experience. You are truly angels and I am forever grateful. We have been writing and have been able to communicate to one another things that our hearts have longed to say and hear for many years. God bless you. Renee FOUND #2597

3 of your AMAZING SEARCH ANGELS have FOUND my birth father in 10 hours! I made contact with his mother this morning to confirm! Thank you so much for the services you give! Ashley S FOUND #2498
"For nearly 22 years (I was born in 1970 with sealed records) I have been looking for my birth mom. Over the years my search wasn't all consuming and for the most part I had pretty much given up, when I decided to post with G'S Adoption Registry. I thought I would see if anything came out of it. I posted here and there over the years, but it always resulted in absolutely nothing. After just a few weeks, the amazing search angels believed they found HER. This new revelation was just the start of a new journey. How do I contact her? Do I call or write a letter? Does her family or husband know about me? Yet a million new questions would surface. As my choices would have it, I sent a certified letter with restricted delivery (so only she could pick it up). Within a very short time after she received the letter (hours) I received a phone call. You can only imagine...but there were nerves involved and quite a few tears. That was on a Tuesday....Friday she and her husband were driving to Ohio to meet me. Saturday, 3-6-2010 is the day I first laid eyes on the lady who gave me life. May I say, she and her husband both are pretty awesome. Many more tears (of joy) and hours later we both had just begun to scratch the surface of who this "new" but incredibly familiar person was sitting next to us. Our lunch turned into dinner at our home with some friends and some of my husbands family, and brunch again the next morning prior to their drive home. At 39, almost 40, I am happy to say that we have added more family to our already existing families. We have plans to drive to their home in a couple of weeks. Just the beginning of a new journey.......Thank you Gary and Search Angels!!!!! As I said in an e-mail, "YOU ROCK". What you do is a wonderful service for all of us who feel like we are missing a part of ourselves and our life. Words are not enough.....May God richly bless you all. Hugs to each of you. FOUND**********Holly 3-6-2010" Thanks again to all of you!!!! What an amazing ride!! Holly Cohen FOUND #2490I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! Chalk up another happy ending for G'S Search Angels! So I sent my birth mother an email explaining how I contacted NJ Youth and Family Services and they recommended G'S Adoption Registry, and how you all came up with her name and her son, Richard. As recommended, I also mentioned how some birth mothers get dates confused because it's such a traumatic experience. I also enclosed a photocopy of the non-id info I received from the courts. I got an email back from her. We confirmed a few more details my Mom had told me that only the birth mother would know. She has given me SUCH a warm reception and wrote that even my half-brother has always wondered about me!! I'm guessing the mix-up on the birth dates has kept us missing each other ALL these years. We're friends on Facebook now and we're looking forward to building a friendship. I was so prepared for rejection, that she wasn't the right person and I'd be back to square one, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined!!! I found out that my birth mother is a breast cancer survivor, so what you have done for me and my daughter is beyond words. You may have just potentially saved a couple of lives!!! If I could jump through the computer and hug every one of you, I would!!! Bless you all!!! FOUND #2486I have found my biological family and am very happy with the help that was provided from this website. I thank you very much for starting this site to help people like me find family that we have been searching for for so long. Thanks again, Jamie FOUND #2479Hi Gary, I have located both my half sister, Dona and my birth mother, Ida. Dona and I found each other in October and have been getting to know each other via email. Ida and I have only just begun our journey together. Thank you for providing me information to help me in my search for my birth mother. Susan Scheibe FOUND #2402Dear Gary, I have FOUND my daughter via your registry, with the help of Patricia Harrell. Thank you all so much! Deborah B FOUND #2401Gary: Thanks for the web-site and organization of search angels. My husband spoke with his birthmother last night for the first time and it was wonderful. She had been praying just two days before that he would find her. He found out he has a half sister and two half brothers. His half sister was so thrilled and overcome with emotion. Hopefully next month we will be able to meet his half sister in Las Vegas and talk his birth mother into coming to Vegas as well. Oh-he also found out he has an uncle that lives not more than 15 miles from us. My husband was just thrilled after 47 years to know who is birth mother is. We donated $20 to your web-site. I wish we could give more but my husband is unemployed right now and so times are a bit tough for us. God bless you for your efforts! Sincerely, Sonya Erickson FOUND #2390To Gary and his "Search Angeles:" This has been the most amazing journey both myself & my girlfriend, Melinda have experienced. With all the information that was given by the "search angels," led us to more & more information throughout our own search. One thing led to another, found the birth mother, but was unable to make contact; found the 2nd sibling and finally made contact with him. The 2nd sibling just made contact with the 1st sibling that was given up for adoption and have kept in contact for the last 10 years. Found out that the birth mother was given information that I had died 6 months after birth, therefore no one even tried to see if I were out there. If it weren't for the help of the "search angels," I feel doubtful that we would gotten as far as we did and that my birth family would of ever have known I was still living. I have yet to meet the birth mother, father, and 2 brothers, but we are making plans to meet in the next month. Thank you so much as you have opened another door in my life. Mathew Barnes & Melinda Hammer. FOUND #2379Gary, Thank you for creating this site!!!!! My brother has found me due to this site. . You truely are great people. For anybody in doubt, it works. When my brother recently looked for me, he found me here. I placed a post on the search page almost 8 years ago and had since placed it out of my head due to no response .I never paid anyone anything. Please don't ever give up your search even if it does not work out for years. Never lose hope you too may one random day get a call as well. My deepest gratitude goes out to anyone who may asisted him in his counter search for me! Sincerely, Ann-Marie "Ray" FOUND #2370Wow - Gary and the team .... you guys are GREAT !!! First contact has been made & I will even get to talk to my bio father who kept in touch with bio mom just in case I surfaced :) You guys know how important this is; so you know how much is behind these simple words ....THANK YOU Trish Lewis FOUND #2365Dear G'S Adoption Registry, I am writing to let you know that we have found my Mother's birthfamily!!!! We found them only with the help of one of your search angels named Sharon Oshanski- Donofrio (aka firstname.lastname@example.org). She was so thorough!!! Sharon has worked on my case for over 5 months. I want you to know that Sharon is one of the most incredible people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was so concerned about finding my Mother's birth mother and birthfamily. I could feel her kindness and warmth through her voice on the phone and in her emails. Never even once did she act annoyed or bothered by our multiple interactions in one day. She was diligent in her research and follow up as well as keeping me up to date on any information she obtained. Her instinc is amazing as well as her honesty and natural curiosity. She has a warm heart and kind words. She makes it her personal mission to help me and my Mom and others like us. Please post her on your search angel wall of fame. She truly is an angel! Warmly, Melissa A. Rosenau-Majewski on behalf of myself and Geraldine P. Rosenau FOUND #2354Dear Gary and all the Search Angels, Just a note to tell you that, after a year-and-a-half of searching, "Baby Morrow" and her mother Winter have been reunited. If it wasn't for your website, this would not have been possible! Love to all, P. Parker FOUND #2352Dear Gary, I have to tell you that, you, your website, and your wonderful team of angels are a true testiment to the good in humanity. You all are truly Angels. After 50 years of searching with your teams assistance we were able to find my Birth Mother and sister in just 9 days. Although my mother passed away in 2002, we found my sister safe and sound. She is going to spend Christmas with us here in North Carolina. Again I would like to thank you and the Search angels. Max A. Storm FOUND #2330I HAVE FOUND MY FAMILY THANKS TO YOU ALL. Forty years of searching and in 3 days you wonderful, wonderful Angels have done what I thought could not be done. God Bless You All! Arline K FOUND #2323HI, Our Brother and his fiancee FOUND us thanks to your website and we are so happy and appreciative. We all got together last weekend for the first time, and had a very nice time getting acquainted. We are all looking forward to whatever happens in the future. Thank You so much for creating this website, it really makes a difference! Thank You,Michael Murphy FOUND #2322Dear Gary; Thank you so much for this website. Kristin Sullivan, my angel, never gave up and we finally have success! My birthparents are deceased but we found 3 siblings! My 2 brothers and I are going to meet soon. They have been looking for me too, but not in the websites I was on (there were many). You probably heard this before but I feel like my life is starting all over again in a way. I feel complete now, very blessed and now my children and grandchildren (someday) will have what everyother non-adopted kids have...a complete history of both parents!! My search is over but my new life with my birthfamily has just begun.....I'm so excited!!! Thanks again and God Bless you and all the Angels (especially Kristin Sullivan) Mary Ann Centrone FOUND #2304Dear Gary & all the search Angels, I just wanted to thank you again for helping me find my husband's birth family. You truly are angels. Your angels found my husbands family so quickly. Each of your angels gave their all and I am so grateful for their loving and giving hearts. My husband & I met with his birth mother who was not very receptive, but gave us some clues into finding my husband's birth father, and our little girl and my husband will be flying to TX to meet his birth father and half brother, and niece & nephew in person for the 1st time. My husband's birth father is over the moon and had only heard rumors that my husband MIGHT exist. My husband has a half sister that we have meet that looks a lot like my husband, and she has a daughter who looks just like our little girl. For an adoptee, seeing a blood family member that looks like you is something that is unexplainable. If you post this please include this part: NEVER give up and always remember there are several sides to your family's story, please keep searching, and best wishes. Thanks again Carleen Forsythe FOUND #2288Thank you so much. This is truly made me a believer that miracles do happen. I'm so blessed that I had access to these sites that will help a person find their loved ones. I thank you and the Soaring Angels for everything. God Bless All!!!!!!!! I have a new enriched life and a extended family now. Carla S FOUND #2280Hi Gary! Thanks to you and your team and most especially, Tami Murphy, I have found my birth family!!! The only person left is my brother, Roger, and we have talked on the phone and are emailing! We plan to meet this fall and I can hardly wait! WOW such a dream come true!!! I cannot thank you enough for having this web site and all of your "Search Angels" !!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Those words do not seem like nearly enough to say, but I do mean it with every ounce of my being!!! :-) Thank you all again and please keep up the good work! You all are indeed ANGELS and your time, efforts and hard work certainly are appreciated!!! Blessings to all of you, Terry Ann Bissinger Christensen FOUND #2278I posted on gsadoptionregistry a while back. I was searching for my birth Mother (I knew her name) or other family. I have found out that she passed away in 1984, however, her brothers were able to verify that she had a baby in 1962. I have been in contact with my birth siblings and it has been great. I wish I could have met my birth Mother, as stories about her reveal a wonderful person that had some struggles, but had many strengths and characteristics worthy of emulating. To anyone still searching for a lost connection with a loved one, a birth parent or siblings, don't give up! You never know when you might get an email from someone that read about your search on an internet sight that is sending you an email with the subject "Could this be her?" That is what happened to me when a Facebook friend I had never met read about my search on my wall. I couldn't stop looking at pictures of her that were sent to me. I look a lot like her! To any birth Mothers out there, I would just like for you to read what I would have told my birth Mother if we had met: Thank you for giving me life. I know it must have been a difficult decision. I had a great childhood with a loving family and that wouldn't have been possible without you! Thank you for this free site and best wishes to all searchers! Paulette FOUND #2274Gary, Thank you for the amazing help, the experience has been an emotional but great one. My sisters parents are amazing people and we are working on exchanging pics and allowing her to accept this experience in her own time. I would like to thank everyone for the amazing compassion and assistance they showed me in the short period of time it took the angels to find her! Tiffany L FOUND #2257Dear Gary, Thanks for all the help and support that you and your team of angels provided. I have been searching for years and within days, you guys provided me with enough information to narrow the search down to 3 people. This was done despite my providing you with very sketchy and limited and sometimes inaccurate information. You cannot know the happiness you have brought to so many people. God bless you all! You are a godsend. Laura FOUND #2256I found my Birth daughter. With the information I received from the Angles it was easier then I thought it would be with a little bit of luck thrown in. Thank you Gary for this wonderful web site. Thanks Angles! Sherril Ludlow FOUND #2245Gary, I have exciting news! Someone saw my post on your site and emailed me offering to help with the search. Within a couple of days we had a name and phone number. My friend was united with her birth daughter by phone, and a visit is being planned in the near future. This was my friend's only child. She now has her daughter, a son-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Your site has been a huge blessing to a lot of people. Many thanks for all you do! Ronda FOUND #2241Angel Search Team and Cindy Frankenfield, I would like to thank you all for your help. I have now with been reunited with my 2 biological brothers as well as my biological mother! I feel truly blessed for you all to do these things for people. I want to send a special thanks to Cindy Frankenfield and again to all the Angel Search team. May God bless you all. Sincerely, Ashley Miller FOUND #2238Gary, I am so overjoyed to report that thanks to your site, my birthmother found me. I really had just decided that I had done what I could and left it at that. She was just browsing and saw my posting and emailed me last week. She drove down and we met and this truly is such a gift. I just wanted to thank you so much for changing lives the way that you do with this site, it is just amazing. If there is ever anything I can do for anyone else, I would love to help out. It can be a very disheartening and lonely process but well worth it in the end. Thank you again, Wendy Arrington FOUND #2237To everyone on thier search---PLEASE dont ever give up. It took 30 years, but my son found me on this site 9/26/08. We have met, we email every day and we make plans to see each other 3x 's a year as he lives in Florida and I in NY WE TOOK TO EACH OTHER IMMEDIATLY--HE IS AWESOME. I never gave up , I just kept posting and writing to the state to update my info. One day, he just decided it was time to find me and did so within a 24 hour period. Never give up hope! Thanks so much GS - your site answered all my prayers Ellen Lotta FOUND #2235I found my birth daughter (Born 08/21/85). I registered on March 14, 09. I needed help with finding my daughter who I placed for adoption 23 years. Ago. I was checked that within hours, I had a name, a picture, and address. With that, I searched the name and found out a lot of information and was able to get an email address for my daughter. She wrote back and it was her!!! It has been wonderful communicating through email with her. We have not met in person but I am happy to say that she had a fantastic life. Kim Wells was my search angel and she was amazing! Thank you thank you, thank you. Much love and happiness!!! Tammy Stewart FOUND #2232Hi Gary, I have to admit that miracles do happen on this website. However, this time it has happened to my family. When I received your call on my cell phone, I didn't recognize the number and usually don't answer if a name doesn't show. Something just made me answer and I was dumbfound and shocked by your response. I immediately checked my email and there was my half brother sending me a message! Please know that you have made a dream come true for my mother, as well for my whole family. God bless you and all of your angels...this could not have happened without you! With sincere gratitude, Linda LaRocca FOUND #2227Thank You Gary. My birth daughter Robin Anne found me through your service. I will never forget March 19th 2009 when I read on my email subject 'I believe I am Robin Anne'. I never knew I could cry such big tears. She is a only child that had a wonderful life. Her parents had no siblings either, so she had no uncle, aunts or cousins. She now will know 151 in our family of my mothers and her brothers and their children throughout Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and Florida. She married her high school sweetheart after both went to different high schools and colleges, graduated and then paths crossed again. She has a daughter.. therefore I am a grandmother for the first time. Our relationship is splendid. Doesnt seem much of a generation gap between us. She is meeting her birth father who is still a dear friend to me and is in another state, next week. (he has two adopted children as well and also from a large family of 4 brothers and 5 sister) She will be meeting my children and a few of my siblings in July. Our endless talks mean the world to mean in just getting to know each other. Thank goodness we both have verizon. She is 36 and I am 53. Things are good. We are `Happy ! Thank You Gary. so very sorry to know that Danna passed. But thank you from the bottom of my heart. Life is great now. I am 9 hours away from her and it will never be too far. FOUND #22075-12-09 - I started my search only a few weeks ago with G'S Adoption Registry. The Search Angels immediately starting searching, within days my email was flooded with information. (I am searching for 3 siblings.) I was so excited. They mostly found information on Justin Morgan. Whose was the only one I met so I was partial to finding him first. The Search Angels found him. We had a lot of disconnected numbers and change of addresses but we kept on going. I am so happy - the grin on my face won't go away. I can't sit, I can't stand. I just want to scream on the top of my lungs "I have a brother!" Its been 32 years since I have seen him. We haven't talked yet - we are supposed to later on tonight. I have talked to his girlfriend a few times today (just found him TODAY) - they just had a son. I have another nephew!! I barely have a family and now I finally can say " YES, I do belong". I am part of a family. Our abusive mother is gone, hopefully we can all come together and be a family. I will continue my search for Chrystal Catherine and Paul Joseph to make this happen. In the meantime, I am soooo thrilled that we found Justin! THANK YOU - THANK YOU Gary & the Search Angels and the G'S Adoption Registry website. A PURE BLESSING. CherylAnne Carey FOUND #2205Hello Gary I just want too thank you and your site for the efforts you have put here for people to use this site. I so happy to tell you that as of 3/26/09 my son and i have been united again and have been talking via yahooand msn instant messengers no stop. You are an angel here on earth tysvm! yours truly, Natalie Taber FOUND #2203Gary! Thank you so very much for providing a place to call home on the web as we search for our loved ones. As I began my search about 10 years ago, I never dreamed that the internet would become the search engine it has. My biological mother got in contact with my all the way in SANTIAGO, CHILE! We have been emailing daily and even greater than that has been connecting with my full biological sister. We were adopted by separate families back in 1985. At the time I was 2, she was just born. Now that we're in our early twenties, it has been so neat to connect. I'm sure we'll all stay in touch. Never stop searching...no matter how long it takes, it's so worth the wait! Peace, laughter, and love to All! Jami L. Witherell FOUND #2198Gary, I am SO grateful for your website! If it wasn't for you, and myspace, I'd have NEVER located my family! What you do here is amazing. To unite someone with their history and family is a gift that can never be understood from the outside. A special thanks to Susan Davis, who was exceptional in assisting me in locating a lot of the documents and resources I used to find my family! Gary and the search angels are the greatest! Joshua Hansen FOUND #2177My name is Margaret Laski #2174. First and foremost, I want to say that, to Gary and all the Search Angels, your help in reuniting this family after 43 years will not go unrewarded.It was a journey, with sorrow and jubilee, that I realize that I had to take to get to where I am now. With the horrific news of the pasting of my mother, in 2007, lead to the jubilee of finding my father. The reunion will take place on Saturday, April 25th. This website was directly responsible for the finding of my mother, which lead to the discovery of my father and the 9 siblings that I have now. The work that all of you do is more that computer work and investigation. It is letting all of us who are adopted feel like we belong and you all help us make the journey back home, and that is priceless. I am indebted to you all for this gift. Your Friend Always, Margaret Laski FOUND #2174At age 68, I'd given up ever learning anything about my birth mother. However, while doing research on other matters, I chanced across G's Adoption Registry and, on a whim, filled out the search form. Best whim I ever had. Thanks to the Search Angels, I now have a wealth of info about my birth mother, her family and her life and death (in 1994). More important, thanks to them I now have a FAMILY! Turns out I have two half-brothers and four half-sisters (all still living) and a passel of half-nieces and half-nephews and other living relatives yet to be discovered. My existence is as big a surprise to them as they are to me, but they've welcomed me into their family. THE SEARCH ANGELS ARE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! Thank you, thank you, thank you. FOUND #2173.This is to Gary and all the Search Angels I started the search for my Uncle at or around March 25, 2009. I didnt know where to go or even how to look for him from the begining. I was at an adoptin site, and saw a posting for Gs site on there. I thought was the heck cant do any harm to have some help looking for my Uncle. I filled out the necessary things. In less than two weeks I would say, I had a list of names and phone numbers in my email from about six different Angels. I talked to my dad and asked him what I should do. He told me to start calling the numbers I had and asking questions. Well I did just that and the third person I called was my Uncle. My mom and her sisters have been looking for him since the early 80s without any luck. I cant thank you enough for helping me find my Uncle. When Gary decided to call you guys Search Angels he picked a perfect name because in my book you are all just that Angels! Thank you so very much for helping me find my Uncle. You will always be appreciated for what you did for my family! Melissa Busler FOUND #2162My name is Krista N. My birth name is Krista Nichole Marie Pack. I just want to thank this website because I just happened to stumble across this website and found out my birth mother Jennifer P now known as Jennifer S is looking for me, thank you so much. Krista FOUND #2160I started looking back in Feb after I had helped a young lady go through placing her child in January. I got a call from my mentor Aug 19 telling me she had found him and not only did I find him I have a Grand Child as well God is good and he orchestrated this meeting after 30 years .I suggest if anyone wants to find their child to have Hope in God to orchestrate it Pray about it and it also is a Timing thing I belive both parties have to be ready to receive it Thank you for allowing me to post my information Dreams to come true. BELIEVE!!!! Dawn L FOUND #2139
Hi Gary! Thanks to your web site registry. I was able to find my birth mother, oder sister and older brother. We met this past summer and again at Christmas. We have a lot in common, including tastes in music,hobbies,etc. I was also able to meet with lots of cousins, aunts, and uncles that live close by me. Again thank you so much. Andy FOUND #2121Hi There, Because of your site I was able to find my birth father, and two birth sisters!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! My name is Jennifer L, born February 6th, 1970. Thanks again and God Bless you!! Jennifer FOUND #2102Dear Gary: For those who question whether miracles of biblical proportion happen or whether ones life truly makes a difference in this world, I hope they have the opportunity to be touched by your web site. On February 10, 2009, because of G's Adoption registry, the unwavering devotion of a friend, and maybe even a force driven by those who have passed; two sisters, two families, one in Missouri and one in New York have found each other. I believe that there must be a celebration of souls beyond proportion of those passed because of the union that is taking place in the present. I know that Paula, AKA Lisa, and I with all of our being, love, respect, and are grateful to our parents for all they embraced us with, neither of which would ever be diminished by the knowledge or knowing of the other. For all that you and Danna have done, know that you have made this world and the worlds to come a better place. With warmth and profound appreciation Donna Zimmerman and Paula Dement PS If we ever get a chance to be on Oprah, you can bet we'll make sure the world knows about G'S Registry. FOUND #2080Dear Gary, Five years ago, my friend, Paula was searching for her biological family. She sent away for her hospital birth records and information for Social Services in New York. She received a lot of non-identifying information but no names or leads that were helpfulin her search. She came to work one day after three years of searching and said she was storing her packet of information away andgiving up. It was not meant for her to find then or she would have come up with someone that knew about her adoption. I am a genealogyblood hound and love to look into all kinds of family history. I asked if I could continue the search. Paula handed me the packet andsaid "Have at it." So for two years I haved added Paula's information into every free adoption search I could find on the internet. I placed her information in G's adoption Registry under 6-17-1963 Female New York and for two years I checked all the different sites every night before going to bed and every morning at 4 a.m. before going to work. In the two years all I got was two phone numbers of people named Raymond from New York. They had never heard of anyone named Lisa Raymond or anyone that had given a baby up for adoption. Last week before going to bed, I received an E-mail that said, "Paula, I just found your name and information and K Skaggs E-mail address on G's Adoption Registry. I think you are my sister. All your facts fit my Mother and Grandparents. Donna" There was one fact that I left off the site and that was that Paula's Mother had one foot that was 2 sizes smaller than the other one because of Polio. So I E-mailed Donna back asking if her Mother had any deformaties to her hands or feet. Donna immediately wrote back that her Mother had one foot that was 2 sizes smaller than the other one from Polio. I called Paula at home and told her I's found her sister. They have been e-mailing back and forth and talking on the phone. They hope to meet and get DNA testing in the near future. Unfortunately, Paula's Modther and one brother have passed away but she has a sister and two brothers. I asked Donna if she had ever checked G's adoption registry before and what made her go there. She was looking into adopting a child and googled "adoption" and was led to your web site. Althoough she had also given up looking for Lisa Raymond, she decided to put it into your site just to see what came up. I guess you know what she came up with when she put in 6-17-1963 Lisa Raymond New York. We are all very happy and thankful that you started this site for "YOUR DANNA" so that Paula can spend the rest of her life getting to know "HER DONNA". Again Thank you, Karen Kay Skaggs FOUND #2080Thank you for reuniting Jeanna with Tami!! Your site is wonderful. We filled out our information quite awhile ago but we knew that someday Jeanna's daughter would begin looking -- thank you, thank you, thank you. #2070Dear Gary, I want to take a minute to say thank you to you, and all the "Angels" that assisted me in the search for my birth family. On Febrauary 1st 2009 I signed into your registry, and filled out the form, with what information that I had regarding my adoption. By February 3rd, 2009 I had been sent my birth name and several names of family. With the information that was provided I signed into MySpace and was able to locate a young lady with the same last name as my given birth name, sent her an email and found out that she had married my cousin. She began calling all my family members to inform them that I was searching for my mother. The next email I recieved had my mothers name and the names of my two baby sisters. As of today I talk to my mom and sisters, daily, and since we only live 3 hours away we have had two visits. thank you so much for the chance to open a new chapter in my life. I was born Angel Marie Nierman, and adopted as Darcy Lynn Pahl. I am very lucky to have TWO wonderful families, without the help of your registry and the angels I would still be searching and waiting to read this next AMAZING chapter. Thank you and God Bless you all Darcy...Angel Marie! FOUND #2055I began my search on January 7, 2009 and I found my family on February 4, 2009. This registry and everyone who is affiliated with it are truly angels . . . unfortunately, my birthmother and birthfather are both deceased but I found a new 1/2 brother and sister who have been so wonderful. I also found two new nieces and two new nephews and the aunt of birthmother who is 85 and she provided me with the name of my birthfather and told me details of my story that I've always wondered about. I am truly blessed - a special thanks to Greg Johnston, another "FOUND" testimonial who helped me, along with search angel Doreen, get the ball rolling for me telling me everything I needed to do and providing support along the way! The other angels then all pitched in with advice and support and made this search a very interesting experience . .. coming up with ideas I would have never thought of on my own. GOOD LUCK to all who are searching and being searched for - it can be a rollercoaster ride but well worth it in the end! Joan Slevin FOUND 2061I wanted to give my deepest thanks to everyone at G's Adoption registry. My son Jason found me by searching online. I'm not sure exactly which blog he found the information, but what I can say is that had it not been for the support I received from everyone at G's I would not have keep trying. You are all angels. Thank you. Katina M. Woodruff. FOUND #2031Hi, This is long overdue. I'm grateful to your site & to my new found Aunt, who put info on your site. I have searched on & off for years for my fathers birth Mother. I started looking again in July, 2008. I always knew her name, as my father told me of his searching for her. He looked from the 1940s through the 80s. He finally gave up. Her name was very common though. I googled adoption sites for Ill, & yours came up in the results. I was searching for a different relative. I didn't find what I was looking for. I had stopped searching for my dads family years ago, 1 year after he passed away in 1995. But, in July, 2008, I thought-as long as I am on your site, I'll take a look. I saw on your side bar, you could choose different state. So, I leave Ill. & choose WI. I type in the name I was always told belonged to his birth mother. I clicked search. The new page pops up & miraculously, The first post on the top of the right side of the page was the info we had searched for years. I thought this can't be. I e-mailed the person attached to this post immediately. I stayed up all night checking my e-mail. I traced the e-mail to another site, which gave the persons name. Found her ph. number through the white pages. I called her the next day. We weren't sure if we were related. We exchanged all the facts we knew. Then we e-mailed pictures of My father to each other. Well, it was definite. Her Deceased mother was also my deceased father's mother. We live in the same state less than 2 hours from each other. We met in person with-in 4 weeks. It has been A great outcome. I found an Aunt, Uncle & Lots of cousins. Although it is bittersweet, as my dad & his birth mother had already passed away. It is wonderful for us, to be able to know each other & find answers to so many questions we had. My Aunt had put the post on your site 2004. Thank God you have this site where people can find each other. I wanted to say thanks for the wonderful service you are providing here. I am including the post as an attachment with this e-mail. His name on your message board is Raymond Gene Murphy. Again, Thank You so much & God Bless You. D.S. & family ~~~~ p.s My dad was born in 1934 & 2008 is when I found his family through your wesite~~~Just Amazing !! FOUND #2017I would love to share my story with all those out there still searching so here it goes, I was born the oldest out of 5 children our Birth Mother gave birth too.After me the Birth Mother had another daughter who, I have had a relationship with for a long time.Then the Birth Mother went on and had 2 more children,who I have been searching for but they were given up to the state of Kentucky.I remember seeing them when they were babies but didn't know what happened to them.I have carried their baby pictures in my wallet for many years and had registered on every adoption web site I could find. With no luck I traveled to Kentucky to search Micro Fish Records and couldn't find anything because Kentucky is a closed adoption state so when a child is given up and adopted the Birth Certificates are changed.So I gave up for awhile.Then a few weeks ago I thought for what ever reason ,it was time to search again,and the first website I came to was this one I entered all of my info and with in 3 days I had the adoptive names and locations.With that info.I found my sisters daughter on my space and my sister called me a few day's later.She knew she was adopted and had been searching for me too.The same day I spoke to my sister she came to visit me,I saw my my sister for the first time in 37 years. It was overwhelming and very emotional.My brother and sister were adopted into the same family and I will meet my brother in 9 months, he is over sea's.He is an Investigator For the Military.So I will wait for that day,but at least I know,he is safe.So what I want to say is all of you searching don't give up.If i can do it so can you.I pray for you all,that you will be reunited with those you search for. I also want to Thank all of the Amazing People on This Website who take time to help others, you all are truly Search Angels.keep up the good work and keep making dreams come true like mine.

If it wasn't for your website I would still be spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere. I want to thank you for having this wonderful website and all my search angels who helped me with information. I especially want to say "Thank You" and give a "Hug" to my special search angel "Sharon" for giving me the means to find him. If it wasn't for her I'd still be searching. She helped to provide a "key" piece to the puzzle. "Thanks so much Sharon". So now you can mark me as another happy "Found" story. Thanks so very much, Maryann Felinski FOUND #1987

I want to thank ALL the search Angels for helping me find out my birth name, which in turn, helped me find my birth family. I sent my form on October 16, 2007 and was given my birth name on October 20, 2007. It has been wonderful connecting with my older brother and finding out where I came from and my birth family history. I had signed up on several sites to find this information and this was the ONLY site that actually gave me ANY information. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! Sandra Karess FOUND #1893Thank you, Gary for all you do to help people find each other! Your website was a Godsend for me! I followed all the tips, did everything you suggested, but I never really believed this would happen. Thanks to one search angel, Marge, I pursued what I thought was a dead end to begin with, BUT, within 2 hours I had located my birthmother! We exchanged letters and on Tuesday, (9/9/08) we met for the first time. It was wonderful and we are looking forward to meeting each other's families and getting to know each other. Thanks to all of you for what you do, you are truly angels! FOUND #1890Just wanted to let you know that everyone is FOUND on my case Thank you so much for all your help and how quickly you found my family! Casandra Bender FOUND #1883Dear Everyone, I've been busy crying my eyes out this evening. Gregory has been found! It is a blessing that runs through my entire being. I am so grateful. My heart is filled with joy along with some sadness that my mother has passed. She cried at least a million tears over losing these children. But now, after speaking with the older sister he grew up with and having her confirm all of the information regarding Gregory, I know he has had a good life, loving parents, and that he grew up to become a sweet man. With the help from Amy and from those of you that cared to reach out, it took Amy less then 36 hours to find my brother...a boy/man that I've looked for since I first heard he existed--almost 45 years ago now. I've had people who do these searches imply that I was just too lazy to provide them the information they needed to help. They told me I should quit, that mine was a lost cause. But not Amy. She's been working either on the phone or emailing me since I was first contacted by her yesterday. This wonderful young woman is the Erin Brodivich of angels. Thank you, Amy, and a big thank you to those other helpful souls that reached out to help Amy begin the healing of my broken heart. My warmest blessings to each of you, Carla Stevens FOUND #1882I want to thank mr.gary,mr.bob,miss donna,miss emily,miss margaret,and thank the whole team on gsadoption resgistry I want to thank all the search angels and to thank any one who has help me in search of my brother brian simmons which is now samuel edward davis the state of california dept. of human services confirmed it this morning thanks to them to..

I have a wonderful update!!! I found my sister Kerri Lyn!!!!
We met Juli 22nd... It went great.
Her family is delighting and they treated me like family immediatly!!!
Life is wonderful..God is soooooooooooo good!!!
Good luck to everyone out there still searching - never give up and always keep the faith Stephanie J FOUND #1858Saying thank you to Gary and the wonderfully dedicated, talented, driven, and helpful Search Angels that took up my cause to find my birth family just seems completely inadequate. It is marvelous to be able to say that my birth mother and half siblings have now been FOUND, and it is because several different search angels spending their time and energy to help track down leads. The roller coaster of emotions this search has brought about has been one heck of a ride, and an extremely wonderful angel named Pam helped me through some pretty difficult emotions when this all started. She helped me cope with anger, fear, elation, disappointment, and finally acceptance in the beginning of my search. Her willingness to take the time to help me when I was hurting and be the voice or reason went far and beyond what the search angels dedicate themselves to doing. There are not words to express how profoundly grateful I am to Pam, Denise, Heather, James, Cecilia, Gary, and each and every person that has helped me locate my birth family. One of these days, I may have enough information to search for my birth father's side of the family, but for now........ I have a sister, a brother, and an uncle I am going to enjoy getting to know. Hopefully, their memories of my birth mother and grandmother will help fill in some of the gaps that their passing has left. Thank you for taking up the cause of so many of us with unanswered questions that know part of us is missing. It means the world to know there are people out there that care and have the skills to help us find our long lost family members and answers to the questions that have plagued us for decades. All my heart felt love, respect, admiration, and gratitude........ Kim Allen FOUND #1821My story is kind of different but someone saw your board and they help find people as a hobby. so if I had never been on your registry I would have never been found at all. thank you for setting up the registry. everyone may not know about them but sometimes it's just meant to be.Thank you so much Tina Pinch FOUND #1810 Happy Sunday! I wanted to let eveyone know that I made contact with my Biological Grandmother!!! I called her today and she was not only receptive but thankful! Come to find out that she had been waiting allllll these years to know whatever happened to my Dad! and was excited that she was finally a Grandmother and a Great-Grandmother (as she was unable to have anymore children). We will be meeting eachother in the next few weeks - by the end of July! So, please let me say....I will always be forever grateful to everyone that helped me find her! I don't know that I would have ever been given this opportunity if it weren't for your help!!! Words cannot describe the in dept feelings of graditude I have for all your kind efforts!!!! Thank you with much much sincerity!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nicole Esposito FOUND #1808I am thankful to say that after 30 years, your search engine website helped me to locate my daughter. We have been pursuing an online relationship for over a year now and we'll meet when she is ready. I will never be able to thank you enough for having your website up. And to find you, meant finding the answers to the many questions I had . May you be Blessed as brightly as you have Blessed myself and I'm sure, many others. FOUND #1807Thank you so much for your site and the help it provided. My son and I found each other and met for the first time last week.It has healed a wound that was 41 years old. We hope to build a relationship that includes siblings and other family. GOD bless you all.Carol Hamilton FOUND #1806I wanted to thank you all so very much for helping me find my brother!

I found my Birth family and now that hole is filled in my life and they are very happy that I found them especially my Bmother ,because she never wanted to give me up ,but had no choice at the time. Thank you Thank you Thank you. And a very heart felt thank you to Gary for having a place for all of us adoptees to go when they need help. God Bless you Gary. Sandra FOUND #1782I am so happy. I made contact via regular mail with my brother Gregory Scott Ward and he called me on Friday 5-2-08 and we are going to meet in June he is going to fly to Akron from Texas and come to my only son's wedding! We have talked contiuously on the phone this past weekend and I put him in touch with his biological mom and his other siblings. He is a great great person and I am so blessed and happy to have finally ended my 20 year search to find him. It is one of the most awesome things that has ever happened to me outside of the birth of my child and getting married. It is going to be a wonderful journey as we make our way into the future! Thanks to one and all of you who helped me so greatly in this amazing part of mine and his lives. With blessings and love to one and all!

I posted my info. on G'S Adoption Registry in March, 08' and my son emailed me yesterday. He said he found me through your website. We spoke for 4 hours today, and shared several photos over the net. It is too late to give all the details; I will email later and give a more thorough reunion story. Thank You Sooooooooo Very Much! You Have Made Me The Happiest Momma On Earth!! I Love you all for all that you are and all that you do for all souls touched by Adoption......Thank You Forever I Love All Of You. FOUND #1752Dearest Gary, I want to say this has been an experiance that i thought i would never experiance in my entire life.You guys are the best i have found all 3 siblings except one sister and my Mom also,still working on the Dad part of this Story,but with out people like you helping others like me this would have never been possible.God surely has a Place for you one Day.Thanks for making my Dreams and Reality come TRUE. Doug Knowles Dallas Texas. FOUND #1733Hi Gary, Please Put found next to my My Name Deborah Maxine Tromsdorff I found my Daughter Her name is now is Christine Donna . I named her Donna as a first name .Her adopted parents were wonderful as I have met them too. It took 38 years to find her. She resides in California with my newly found grandaughter and son in law. It was a dream come true Iv made three trips there so far and we talk every single day. Thank You so Much for all your help Deborah FOUND #1720To: "Search Angles" As a result of your efforts, I received a call from My sister Earllynn. We had not known that either of us existed until you found her. I have always known that I was adopted but had wonderful adoptive parents and as long as they were alive I had no desired to find birth relatives. In the last few years I have inquired about finding birth relatives. I was mostly told "it can't be done", others have said "if you do you will probably be sorry".Both of these statements have proven to be not true! It had to be a miracle. Too many pieces had to fall in place. Only by accident was my name sent to your organization, and without my knowledge! My birthday is March 26 and this is a wonderful present. The work done had to be a "Labor of love" by the Search Angels. I thank each of you for your effort and the fact you accomplished the find so fast amazes me. May God Bless each of you and guide you as you aid others. Charles Kitchell FOUND #I found my birthson after 39 years!! Yesterday (3/19) I found G's Adoption Registry on line, took a look and filled out the form. I then posted a message on the message board. Within 10 minutes of posting my message, which contained all the "Non-Identifying" information I had obtained from the adoption agency in 1996, I received an e-mail from a true angel named Sandy gave me some information she found that was too coincidental. To make a long story short, I contacted the adopted father who confirmed that this was my son. After 39 long years of searching, I found my son in just a couple of hours! I'm hoping to have contact with him soon.... Thank you, Sandy! And thank you, Gary for this website! FOUND #1705
Dear Gary, In March, through the wonderful efforts of this site, I found my birth son (after only 2 hours!) I was given some information that put me in touch with the adoptive father. # months have passed and yesterday a miracle happened. My two daughters and I each received an e-mail from him! Then, last night he called me! After 39 years, I have spoken with the son I have so desperately wanted to find. This site is truly amazing! I am ecstatic today. I even have a grandson! He assured me more pictures would be coming! I just had to share this wonderful news with everyone and to tell everyone never to give up. God has his timing! With sincere gratitude to Gary and the Search Angels, Laurel Reeve FOUND #1705Hi All! I just wanted to take a minute of your time and thank you all! Because of all of your hard work I have finally found my birth mother. This search is finally over and a new journey begins!

I was born and adopted in Indiana and my search took 12 years...it's a HARD state! NEVER give up...it's worth it in the end! --Meredith Pjesky FOUND #1700I have been searching for my birth son for nearly 40 years. I have done or tried just about everything to find him. I have registered everywhere!!!Then I got an email from Kim, a search angel here. we talked and emailed back and forth. She emailed me last night with a phone number and I called and got another phone number and called and talked with my son!! He was as excited as I!!

I can't thank you enough for your help, it was a process of emails from the search angels that led to finding my sister. Anyone out there searching "don't give up". keep trying. love Kerrie H FOUND #1650Hi all, Just want to thank you all for your help. I have found my birth family and am absolutely thrilled.

We made sure that they mentioned you and your website in the article. Thanks to you and God, we now will get a chance to know each other. I plan on going to NC in the summer, Amy is a teacher, and will be out for the summer. She and her mother plan on coming to Albuquerque in October for our Balloon Fiesta. Here is the article about finding my daughter after 39 years. http://robesonian.com/articles/2008/02/09/robesonian/news/areunion%20feb10.txtThank you again, Gary, and God Bless you. FOUND #1637I would like to thank Gary and the search angels for helping me find my birth daughter. The search angels are actually the ones who found her registration on another site. They got in touch with me right away and pointed me right to my birth daughter. They were very helpful in setting up that first phone call, and held my hand most of the way. I will be forever grateful to Gary and his team. It is odd how I have searched on and off over the years, but the internet has changed everything. It Is easier. There is a lot of valuable information on Gary's site which I found very helpful. Sincerely, Sheri Lapin FOUND #1630To All of the Search Angels....I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart...a match was made in my case. A search angel was able to make contact with my birth family. I am not sure about what to do at this point, I just wanted to post an e-mail to all of you so that you are aware that this case is complete. Again, many thanks to all of you who gave your time and effort..Sincerely, Jennifer Brown FOUND #16293-17-57 Brendan found his birth mother and siblings...He was born in Massachusetts...Thanks be to God that the laws were recently changed there and that someone notified us of the change...His birth family can not wait to meet him and we already have a reunion planned...thank you for your web site and all that you do! FOUND #1626Hi Gary – It was only a matter of 1 month from my posting on your webpage #1625 that your wonderful Search Angels with their kindness and support were able to assist me in locating my birth mother. I sent her a letter asking for confirmation and thanking her for her difficult decision to give me up for adoption in 1958. My purpose to contact her was to give her peace of mind for that decision. I hope I have done that. She does not want a reunion at this time, she has never revealed her secret. Although I would think to reveal a secret like this would be a liberating experience, I am not her, and I do not know her circumstance. Therefore, I accept that she is unable at this time to meet me or know me and I am confident that I have accomplished my goal of giving her a gift, she no longer has to wonder on each birthday, what her child must think of her ~ I hope only that she can forgive herself, for I never blamed her, ever. I am at peace now too. Thanks for providing this wonderful experience ~ if in time she changes her mind ~ I would be thrilled, but for now I am at peace. Beth FOUND #1625Dear Gary's Registry and "Angels" About a year ago I sought your help to find the Birth Mother of a friend of mine. Adoptee: Birth Mother you found the Birth Mother living in Sweet Home, Oregon. The adoptee lives in So. California. For the last year they have exchanged letters, emails and phone calls. This past weekend we drove the 13-14 hours to Sweet Home, OR for a reunion. It was wonderful. Beth not only met her Birth Mother, but also a sister and a nephew. As they all like camping, they camped at one of the wonderful campgrounds in Oregon. The reunion was a complete success. They felt as though they had never been apart and had been together all of their lives. It was Beth's 38th birthday this weekend and will be one that she will cherish forever. As an adoptee who found many years ago and did have the chance to meet my Birth Mother in 1985, I do know that in many reunions there is no connection. In this case there was a definite connection and things could not be better. So, thank you all for your help. You are wonderful. I so believe in your site that I have recommended it several times to people I have seen who have posted messages on ancestry.com that they are searching. I have no idea if these people ever followed up, but I sure hope they did. Thank you again and again. You do a wonderful job. sincerely, JoAnne Cook for Elizabeth (Beth), adoptee and Joan, Birth Mother.
