~~Gina~~

I'm a day late on the get to know you poll, but I saw your interesting thing!  Were you adopted?  I am/was and met my birth mom when i was 21 too.  So i'm always interested to talk to other people in similar situations.

    I actually wasn't adopted. My parents got divorced when I was two, and my dad won custody of me about a year later. My mom is half Chinese half Laos and apparently where she comes from they don't really care about the daughters, so we basically just lost touch especially since I was so young. My older sister actually found me on the internet (before Facebook and Myspace), called me up and bought me a plane ticket out to Vegas where they lived to meet them. Definitely could have been a Maury show episode. I still don't talk to my mom - just a little weird after 21 years of never having a mom, but I'm close w/ my sisters :) there's actually one more of us that no one's been able to find yet. How was your experience meeting your Mom? Do you still talk to her?

    Gina, So crazy, but that's awesome you have a relationship with your sisters.  I was adopted at birth, but reunited with my birth mom.  No other siblings from her, and my birth father didn't want to be found.  But I do have a nice relationship with my birth mom.  It can be awkward at times, but it's nice to know where I came from.
