I was visiting my parents, “Do you still have my adoption information?”
Yeah, I think so.” My mom walked over to the room where they’ve always kept their important documents.
It’s a dimly lit space at the heart of my parents’ Wisconsin home. There’s an antique desk, an old typewriter, wooden file cabinets, family picture albums, my dad’s hunting rifles and all of my brother’s favorite board games.
I was at the dining room table when my mom reappeared with a manila folder. Inside was an intake packet with a case number, a birthday card from my 2nd foster mother, and an aged sepia-tinted brochure from Eastern Child Welfare.
“Is this what you’re looking for?”
“Umm I guess. Thanks.”
It feels like ages ago when I began the infamous “birth-search.”
