On Feb 20, 2010 I finally got the death certificate I had been waiting for since Dec.1 and it came ironically on my daughters birthday, when 19 years ago to the day I realized that I needed to find her -that she couldn't have forgotten me and put it behind her as she would have been told. I knew when i saw Christina and held my own precious baby that i needed to find my mom and she probably needed me too... for so many years i had told myself I didn't want to hurt anyone not my wonderful adopted parents and not my birthmother who sacrificed so much and possibly hid this from her family. I didn't want to hurt anyone, but 19 years ago i realized how i was hurting..... enough of that........
On the death certificate it stated she had a daughter... so I have a sister, a half sister most likely!
But there is someone out there who knows of my mother!!! Not sure if she knows about me!!! her name
is Shirley and it gave an address and I since have found her birthdate and I believe she went to the same school in the bronx that i thought my mom went to and they said no...? I have attached a few bits on this email but the first one is a profile of who I am most sure is her......I found a mortgage she signed for a house in pasco county florida, but I havent found a phone # she must be using cell phones....
....I found an email that may be hers and i sent my info to her.... so I am on the path!!
The funeral home is no longer in existance, and she was cremated, so those are dead ends.
She was in a home in the bronx for 5 months before she died, but it doesn't tell me why...
cancer, stroke? (she was only 60)
thanks for all your help and support!
