Just meant to be - part 2

You are here

About 30 years ago Sarah had tried to obtain information to commence a search which went nowhere because the information wasn’t available and although she was agreeable to me searching, warned me of possible disappointment.

It isn’t easy to explain why I wanted to know what had become of our child, a mixture of reasons and emotions come to mind. All I can say is that the anguish and regrets of those days 50 years ago did not sit easily with me and were beginning to haunt me. From time to time thoughts along those lines would come to my mind and became more and more dominant until I felt something had to be done towards locating her or at least finding out what had become of her before the subject could be put to rest. The child had never been forgotten and unlike a death followed by ceremonies and a grieving process to assist healing there was no finality, the hurt just went on and on. Perhaps the catalyst was the exposure given by news media to a couple of Federal politicians whose lives were touched in the past by adoption and abortion. Who knows? I don’t wish to dwell upon that or try to analyse why, it was just a strong feeling I had of wanting to know. Wanting to know things like has she been looked after, is she in good health, is she even alive?
