Could It Be?

Could It Be?

She couldn’t believe her eyes. She found a package outside, and her heart raced when she saw the name that was written on it. “Could this be real?" She wondered. After so many years of searching without results, was it possible that she had finally found what she so desperately wanted? It seemed too good to be true, but it was certainly not impossible. But before she could start celebrating, she had to be absolutely certain.

It seemed as though all of Hillary Harris’ years of hard work had finally paid off. When she was in kindergarten, she had learned that her parents had adopted her when she was an infant. Fortunately, that didn’t matter, because her adoptive parents were absolutely wonderful. But her world changed when she was 13 years old. She felt empty after losing her adoptive mother. She assumed that she could fill the void by learning about her biological parents.

Harris spent most of her teenage years searching online for any clues that could lead her to her biological parents, but she found very little. She tried Ancestry.com by the time she was in college. Unfortunately, the free version wasn’t much help, and being a college student, she couldn’t exactly afford to pay extra. So, she gave up her search and moved on. Then, the urge to reconnect with her bloodline resurfaced once again.

Harris married her true love, Lance, and in 2012, she gave birth to a beautiful little girl named Stella. For her daughter’s sake, she decided to look up her family’s health history again. But this time, she chose to try a new approach. This meant that she had to find the agency that dealt with her adoption. She did an extensive online search to narrow down her search in the county she was born in. Then she found Catholic Charities. She reached out to them to see if they had any information.

Harris filled out all the information she had regarding her biological parents and her adoption using the online request form. Eventually, the agency called and they had some great news. She had an open adoption, which allowed them to send her all of the information that was available. So, Harris waited quite impatiently until the packet of information finally arrived. But this wasn’t the end of her search for her birth parents.
