  2. I just discovered your site, and am fascinated. As a birthmother who has travelled the long, long, long road of adoption issues, it's always great to meet other travelers. Keep up the good work.

  3. Hi Lynn: I found a 2014 entry to your blog "What To Do When Your Birth Mother Refuses Contact or Vital Information " while searching for information on how common it is for biological mother's not to reply to a letter requesting contact. I learned that other family members might be more open to contact, and this was very important to hear. I still can't believe that contact was refused, and no reply at all! Is this unusual? Is there anywhere I could find info, adoptees experiences, etc. in navigating these delicate issues? I am writing for my husband and we would like to make contact with the mother's family, and maybe get a lead on who the father is. We have a pretty firm idea who the bio dad is from Ancestry DNA. We are old school using snail mail...but maybe that was not the right approach in making first contact with his mother. Not sure the father even knows, so that it a problem. Anyway, saddened and frustrated here, but looking for tips and guidance. Thanks. Your blog so far has given us a lot of comfort in understanding the issues.
