I've been searching for my biological family sine the mid 1990s. I had attempted to gain access to adoption records to no avail, they were terse, and uninformative.
I'd submitted my gene sample to 23andme.com some time ago and over the weekend, I was matched with my biological sister. I also have a brother, and my mother is still alive and living elsewhere.
The family history and the 23andme gene-matching appear to be quite convincing that this is the situation.
Right now the news is quite stunning, and I am proceeding slowly, this is very new emotional geography to me.
