Square One

Today we heard from the State of Arizona. My wife got the letter when she got home from work. When she opened it up the news was disheartening to say the least. There was no record of my adoption in Maricopa County in Phoenix. We did not expect this. The thought had never crossed our minds. The letter said that we should try another county. The end. I can't believe they can't take my reissued birth certificate, which has a unique number, and look behind it to see where my life changes took place. We don't have the resources to try endless counties.

All my life I was under the impression that my adoption had taken place in Phoenix because I was born there. It never occurred to me that it might have happened in a different county. I was born in Phoenix and raised in Tucson. Pima County. Tomorrow we are going to have to get another petition notarized and send it off to another courthouse. There is one more person left that might be able to help me find some answers. I have been thinking about my dad's best friend while growing up and how to contact him. We are crossing our fingers, but we are back at square one.

That is disappointing, but try not to get discouraged just yet. I would definitely see what you can find out through your dad's friend. That is one good thing about everyone being on social networking now; You can just about locate anybody.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that it gets worked out soon for you.

How very frustrating. I am new to your blog and story but this must be a difficult quest you are on. I wish you the best of luck.

Man, that really sucks. But, it couldn't have been that easy, right? No worries, you will make this happen.

Thank you all so much for your support. Lois and I really appreciate it. I have much faith that this will all turn out okay. It is the time factor that we are worried about. We are truly blessed. And thanks again Theresa.

Oh Beaux I am sorry but I am sure you are so close. Your father's friend sounds like a good start to get the answer you need. I will pray that he will be the answer and that you will find him easily. Sending best wishes to you and your lovely wife!

I am SO SORRY Beaux! I know how much that sucks for you.

Don't think I'm silly-but you should have Lo contact The Locator. Do you know this show? Your story is really compelling, and it couldn't hurt to try! He says he takes cases for free all the time.

Thinking of you all.
