    Discovering My Roots

    Hi all! I am the product of an overseas adoption and am currently searching for part of my family. I was adopted in Germany by an American family and brought to the states when I was younger. 6 years ago I found my birth mother and discovered that I had an older sister and a half-brother. Every few years I go to Germany to visit them and they come here to visit me. I thought that maybe this would be enough for me, but I still feel like a piece of the "puzzle" (aka ~ my life) is missing.

    My birth mother will not give me any information regarding my birth father. Apparentally he left her when she was pregnant with me. I do not even know if he is aware that he has another daughter. I have tried to ask my birth mother about him, but she will not tell me anything. I do know his last name but that is all. There is no information about him in my adoption records.

    Could anyone give me any ideas on how to find him? Any and all help would surely be appreciated! Thank you! :-)

    Try to get a copy of your birth certificate from Germany.

    German adoption on Yahoo.
