Reading all the posts makes me want to cry.  We can all relate to one another in some way.  If anyone knows of my BM or who the father could possibly have been, please let me know.  My mother told me the wrong person was my BF.

When I went to my follow up after 6 weeks I asked Dr. Hutchinson if he knew her name and I think he said her name was Betsy, but I was still medicated on tranquilizers so I am not absolute on the name. If you are out there searching you need to know that you have two sisters now, and you are thought about every day from me and your two sisters who want to meet you very much. The attorney who represented the adoption was a complete jerk and he controlled everything about this adoption including keeping me doped up at the time of the signing of adoption papers. I only remember his first name as being John. But he practiced family law
