Well, I got a letter from the Illinois Adoption Registry and Medical Information Exchange today, telling me that I had requested non-identifying information regarding my birth mother, birth father, or birth siblings. All they could tell me was that she was 19 years old, that I was born Nov 7th, and where I was born. I was confused, as I thought I had written explaining that I wanted IDENTIFYING information. So I called to ask.

Apparently, unless any of them register, I cant know any identifying information. On the plus side, this means that none of them have filed Do Not Contact papers. On the down side, I dont know what to do from here. I apparently cant get an original copy of my birth certificate unless she consents. Also, from the information I got today, it would appear that my birth father wasnt listed on my birth certificate.

I feel deflated. I dont know what to do, or where to go, or who to ask for help. I know that its been 22 years, and whats the difference of a few more days or weeks until I know...but I dont care. God damn it, its been 22 years. I want to know now. I just want to know.

Do you have the actual name of the hospital or just the town?

I know the name of the hospital, I just didnt want to say it on LJ, just in case there was some identity thefty type.

Gotcha. That's a definite lead then. Sure, you'll have to slog through a lot of footwork to make something of it but its something.

Honey, I know you want to know, but you may not ever. It sucks, but you have applied, and now you have to wait. I was lucky, when I applied to find my birth son, I only waited less than a year. Since I had applied first, he got to wait a week. We are both very lucky.

Hang in there and let me know if you want to talk in person. *hugs*

I know, it just hurts. I feel like there's this hole in me, and I just want to fix it. :(

Thanks for the offer, love!
