Has anyone really been united with long-lost "family" by only these forums? Directly within the forums?
Or have they found each other more through reunion registry searches, state registry searches, knowing a little info and searching public records, etc.?
I see countless "looking for" posts on these forums, and so few "found" posts. And all the found posts I've ever seen weren't a direct result of a forum of any site, but from state registries or knowing some info and finding public records.
I know "it's a start" and "post everywhere just in case" ... but I still wonder what the true odds are on any forum site when only using a forum.
idk i watched this last night i feel the same way i wish someone would help me

While I didn't find my son through a post I wrote on the forums, I did find him when I entered my information in the registry on Adoption.com. He had already registered and so I found a match. I don't know when he had registered because his information was all out of date. I did have a name and enough information to locate his parents who share my information with him. He was 31 at the time. We had our first contact on our joint birthday and have been in contact ever since.
Blessings,
