Hello Readers. My case worker got back to me the other day. There is no new method in searching with KAS, but holy crap did she figure out something major!! She told me when the KAS laws were put in place my case slipped through their fingers. This means I got very lucky and my search was processed by the old way of the police searching for a missing person. My search was *never* processed through KAS, making me eligible to search through them now. I have a new chance at finding her!!
Tonight I'm filling out the forms to petition KAS to take me case, and I'm updating what I've put in my file. This means new pictures and I'm even writing a new letter to my birthmother. I can't wait to tell her about trip home to Korea and how much I could feel her and felt at home! I hope it makes her so happy to know I've felt home. I feel like a kid coming home from an awesome day at school.. I can't wait to tell my mother all the wonderful things that I've been up to since I started searching for her.
I'm so full of joy in telling her all this news I'm shaking. It almost makes me forget that she may never hear the news. Even if she never makes contact and they can only read my letters over the phone, I think she'd be really happy for me. I think she'd be really proud that despite everything we've been through, her little girl is grown up and making it. So tonight I'm filling out forms and writing my mother. I'm making collages of myself, and will decompress with some adoptee books.
Tonight I start my 2 year search again. My hope, heart, and world has been revitalized!
