  1. Anatess, one day I will certainly do a trip back and see where I was born/found. I would love to find out who my family is. Maybe find out why I was given up and left. I guess that would mean, though, that I'd be meeting relatives... And that part overwhelms me a bit.
  2. Thanks! I'm in and out, in and out
  3. I've been looking through the pics of my matches and I'm not seeing any resemblances but that would be a head trip to find someone who looks like me!
  4. I’m wanting to find relatives and complete my biological family tree.
  5. That is why I wouldn’t meet any of them. Haha. I just want to find them online and complete my family lineage.
  6. Oh wow. That is great. I’d be happy finding anyone who is part of my immediate family or close to that circle... auntie, uncle, grandparents, siblings... parents
  7. Should I just boldly start messaging people on there? Is that appropriate? I don’t have any good information to contribute to any of them... Short of messaging people and explaining my birth story, not sure where to begin...
  8. Were you able to connect with your mum?
  9. JAG, I was adopted in the Philippines. I was found by a local and brought into a small “hospital” in a very small town. There was never any record of my bio mother or father. The signatures on my birth certificate are of the doctor and his wife who took charge of me, is how I understand it.
  10. I was adopted in the Philippines.
  11. I was gifted an Ancestry DNA kit and I just received my results back. It confirmed what I already suspected regarding my ethnicity -- I am 100% Philippines! Now, I am wanting to discover more of who I am but I'm not sure where to start because I'm adopted. To make things more complicated, my birth certificate does not list my biological parents because I was orphaned, so I literally have zero leads into finding close relatives. I did spend the $100 to unlock my matches and the closest relative is 4th Cousin; I looked at their family tree, and because I have no names to work with, it meant nothing to me. What does someone in my situation do?
  12. No, I don’t know the answer. I have a million things going through my head. There’s at least two people in this thread that feel something like this could work. That said, I lean towards it being a high risk relationship, but do I know the answer? No. I think JAG outlined it pretty well and I agree. He is not thinking things through. While we share the same long term goal of a committed relationship/marriage, I don’t want religion and he does, and that’s an issue.
  13. Good to hear. Two babies but not quite baby-babies anymore. Oldest is 7 and youngest is 3!
