I was given up for adoption at the ripe old age of birth (and you know all about that).
According to my paperwork, my biological parents were in their late 20's. Both had been married (my biological father, was separated). They fell madly in love. While I can't say for sure that I was planned, they were definitely excited that I was on my way.
Things didn't work out like they expected.
For whatever reason, they both decided to put me up for adoption. Based on notes provided by the "Children's Aid Society of Ontario", it appears that I look like and have a lot of characteristics of my biological father. He was a real looker...
For the first five months of my life, I was placed with a foster family that had five kids of their own. Party. They documented my first smile, roll over, fever, you name it and put all this information in my file. I know that my parents appreciate having that piece of my history.
When I finally arrived in my forever home, the one that was made just for me, my parents were overjoyed.
I have never tried to find my biological parents although I've always said that I would. I do not know their name or any identifying details. My parents would be 105% supportive if I chose to do this. We'll see...
I have known that I was "special" from the moment I could remember. It's not everyone that has two mothers and two fathers that love them.
Note 1: Ironicially, Ed is also adopted. I like to tell people that we met at an "Adoption Conference". Not true.
Note 2: My brother is also adopted. We are not biologically related. Although you wouldn't know it. More on that next week when I write about...
