As such, I thought that I would write a little something about the healthy "mentality" to have when starting a "search." So, this may not be what most people want to hear, however having the truth in these situations has an enormous amount of value; to keep you prepared, your feet on the ground and ready for anything, etc. (All things that are most necessary).
It is quite possible that people you are searching for may have at one time or another searched for you. The flip side to that is that many biological fathers have no idea that they even have a child out there. There are also biological mothers that have spent the rest of their lives trying to forgive themselves due to the pain, shame and guilt they have been carrying around. The "making contact" is truly the easy part. It's the "what happens next" that is most difficult.
It is fair to say that many people need to process this new found reality of the opportunity to know you - something they most likely never thought would happen in their lifetime. "How" they are going to handle that is truly a mystery. It is different for every single person. What is also different is what you are going to find. There is always the potential for the fairy tale ending, but that is just not realistic taking all things into consideration. Most people end up on some version of middle ground. They try and create something that works which is comfortable to both sides, respectfully.
I am going to suggest you have compassion and empathy for those you are seeking and when it comes to your "existence" do not ever feel that you do not deserve to have the answers you are looking for. You always deserve to try and get your answers (respectfully and with grace, of course). Please have patience and faith knowing that things turn out the way that they are supposed to whether we understand them or not. This journey for any person is like nothing else you will ever experience in your lifetime and not for the faint of heart. Be prepared and give any other being the respect that you wish for yourself.
