the mother and child reunion
is only a motion away
oh the mother and child reunion
is only a moment away." – Paul Simon
Can you see me?
Oh, no, thats right, you hear my computer monitor secrets but seeing me is a bit much. Technology has not yet advanced to that.
If you could see me, you would see an unwashed, sinus infected woman sitting in her red undies and a peach tee shirt eating a bagel and drinking a cup of coffee. You would also see me dancing a jig in my home office all the while flipping the bird at closed records, Seymour Kurtz and the Friends of Children adoption agency.
Another baby girl found her mama today. They are chatting on AIM as I type this. Over the past few weeks my friend R, the adoptee, has been furiously googling and gathering information. I was also doing background checks and googling and making phone calls and writing letters.
Together we found her mama.
At midnight last night I received this:
"Oh Wow! Hi, Suzan,Yes, if your friend is a young lady who was adopted at birth, then you’ve found her mother. 🙂I knew this day would come!!!! … Of course, I may be getting ahead of myself, but I’ve been waiting for several years now.
Please feel free to contact me. My number is"
I have spent hours on the phone today with both mother and child. I adore them both. They are chatting on aim now.
Massive shout out and huge hugs and love to R and her mama B.
And a big old flipping middle finger to the cretins behind the Kurtz network of agencies and all those that support closed records.
