New Adventures!!!

As some of you know, I have been searching for my birth family for quite along time. I have put so many hours on the computer and even enlisted my best friend Sandi. Actually she has been the one to push me!!!
In the past year I have had people come up to me and ask if I was related to the Davis'. (I have always known my birth mothers name, she is a Davis). I think this was my wake up call to really start looking. Sandi has been there to make calls for me (I'm a chicken) and pushes me to get out of my comfort zone!!! After months of brick walls, Sandi found a site called Search Angels. I actually went on there a couple of years ago, but didn't think they could help me. I went on last Tuesday and put my information in thinking that this would be just another road block, and that I wouldn't hear from them.
My family had planned a reunion in Oro Valley a few months ago. So we went there on Thursday. What an amazing time we had! My dad looked so good and we were able to get professional pictures done. On Saturday we were on our way to Kartchner Caverns, I got a call from Sharon, my search angel. She found my birth mother!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sharon had to e-mail her and confirm everything. On Monday my family was at the studio picking out our pictures, Sharon called and said that she had just spoken to my birth mother! I can't tell you how excited I was. She said that my birthmom was so surprised that I was looking for her! My mom started crying and gave me a huge hug! She has been so supportive in me finding my birth family. I LOVE YOU MOM:)
When I got home on Tuesday, I started talking to her on face book. I have 3 half sister's and 5 nieces and nephews! They have really accepted me. My birth mother told me that she never wanted to give me up, but she was so young and had no family support. She is finally at peace and feels that a heavy burden has been lifted!
I haven't told her I was going to blog this, so I don't want to use her or my sister's names until she is ok with it. I am so blessed, I have been putting her name in the temple prayer rolls. I have two wonderful families now!
The kicker to all of this is that she and my sisters are only 5'2! I have no idea where the height comes in. I can see some resemblances every time I look at their pictures. I'm not sure when we will get to meet in person, I hope soon:)
This probably sounds all jumbled but it has truly been a whirlwind for all of us. A special thanks goes out to Sandi for always being there for me and making me do things I didn't want to do! Love you girl:)
On another note-- Skyler is doing a little better, still has eye pain, but as always he's a real trooper.
