i wish you well on your quest to find info, but I can say from personal experience, still hold them (parents) in your heart with love. info will be hard to find, and many dead ends await
DO NOT get dispondent, obsessive or angry, as this then pushes you away from those that are living that do love you

as a personal note, I will be making a trip this year to pick up stuff that may help me in my quest

but the most important, understand, if you are "unique" your task at hand may not have anything to do with the past history, more your influence on the future

and, seriously, connect with god, as this IMHO has to do with good and evil

Re: My parents secretive past...
Wow someone has an Ego. "I'm adopted so I'm a GOD! Even my genius daughter thinks so! Since I'm so special and godlike I'm going to go post about it on GLP!"

Here is the truth. Your nothing special. Your real parents either couldn't care for you or didn't want you. Your not an alien. Your not a God. Your not special.

If anything I think your very troubled and looking for attention with this post. Do you expect people to come to this thread and worship your supremacy or something?

I hope this is a bad attempt at trolling or OP really is in a sad state and in desperate need of attention.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10729761



I tend to agree.

Also, skip the "psychic" bullshit, OP. "Psychics" are nothing but ripoffs. VERY RARELY a real psychic comes along, but statistically you probably aren't dealing with one.
 Quoting: AZGal 1486221


They aren't REAL!!! RIPOFFS!!!??? oh noes! How will I ever cope? Joking...I actually never put creed to it except that things started adding up. The psychic thing was in the late eighties...so it wasn't on my radar, just another piece.

funny thing is...I NEVER put the word "SPECIAL" into this....the others who didn't like my post did. like yourself. I only want normalcy. Doesn't seem possible though even in the negative vernacular. Try a moment in my shoes...bet you can't because a life without these things can never be imagined as you've never been there.

If I ever get back to the east coast i'm going to hire a PI. I think it may be the only way. But he's going to have to be a specialist who can go quite deep i think. Even when I contact the State directly, they tell me there is no info even non-identifying. I think tptb might need to start letting a few details out because dead ends make you even more curious.

Re: My parents secretive past...
I know something about all these subjects from personal experience. just a couple of things --

1) The baby market idea, while possible, is a stretch. Adoptive parents have a thousand and one reasons to keep things secret.

2) That being said, your unusual characteristics and experiences might indicate something else, such as MK ultra / Monarch experimentation.

3) Have you had DNA testing? I did, and I have these odd mutations I don't even want to talk about or know more about.

In any case, I think the more you put this stuff behind you and realize that you are your own person, regardless of the circumstances that brought you into existence, the better. It's your life now, claim it, renounce the past and whatever sick people influenced it, and take what is yours, which is your life and your own identity.

My gut says you should let it go. But so easy for me to say that not being in your shoes. What do your adoptive parents tell you about your circumstances?
 Quoting: Sloane


They are both passed away now... they never said anything to me at all. I always knew because I found the adoption finalization when I was really young and they had to tell me something. So they just told me I was adopted...period.

Sounds good. You know, the DNA tests might tell you something, yet, does it matter now? I think of that movie Gattaca, what does the sequence really matter? What matters is you and your own choices.

That being said, checking your DNA for any predisposition to certain diseases is not a bad idea. You could get treatment ahead of time if (God forbid) there are any troubles, and you might be able to take steps to prevent it from being transmitted to your own children if you have any.

Re: My parents secretive past...
So recently I've been doing the "Ancestry.com" thing. It's super interesting and fun but I've run into a stumbling block. I can't find find anything beyond my dads dad and hes only there because of a census in which my dad listed his dad. It would'nt bother me at all except that he's supposed to be a III'rd and the trail just stops cold. I've gotten my maternal side all the way across the pond to practically year 1000. I worry because so many things lately kind of are leading me to believe there is a conspiracy going on within my own family tree.

1) I'm adopted and no matter what path I try I get zero cooperation in finding birth parents.

*small addition to the above... a reporter said he thought maybe this was a black market baby thing. hmmmm

2) My parents adopted me when they were really older. (49ish)

3) I have literally NO extended family at all the line ends with me

4) I already told you about my dad and I find out he was 32nd degree in the freemasons.

5) I was told many years ago by a psycic considered to be extremely good that my birth was centered around something that might be a "pandoras box".

6) because of some of the threads here, I've learned I'm supposedly Annunaki/Reptilian/God....whatever... I really didn't subscribe to this but these things are starting to pile up!

Too many strange and unanswered mysteries

My one literally genious daughter says she thinks I was some kind of science experiment and my parents were to care for me.

My Daddy taught me to always write everything down and when the scale seems to lean all in one direction, you probably have hit on something obvious.

When I add up all the things that put me into a smaller percentage of the population... I just don't think this many anomalies can exist within one person.

I am:

Tall
Redheaded
left handed
negative blood with immunities to the plague and aids
160 IQ
Adopted
abductee...(yeah I don;t like admiting this either)


What say you? What would be your next step? Anybody with a similar story here?

First off I should say I am an adoptive parent, so understand if your parents wanted to keep secrets. My child's birth parents were drug addicts and alcohol dependant. I'd rather my child hate me for keeping her birth parents a secret rather than ever have her get tangled up with them. Just a mother's feelings here.

Also, I have tried tracing my mother's roots and come up blank at my grandfather. I found out two years ago this is because my grandfather changed his name and was not truthful about his place of birth.

This was all learned from my grandfather's - brother's daughter in law. Her husband had just passed away and she purged the secrets his father told to him and he to her. She produced a family bible that has been kept out of the site of everyone for a very long time. My grandfather and his brother took it with them when they ran away a long time ago.

One of the reasons he was not truthful was that his mother was a full blooded Iroquois. Back in their time it was an embarassment to have Native American Ancestery back then - such a shame. The other was because he and his brother ran away from home. My grandfather was only 10 or so. His brother was 15.

As well, when my grandfather and then my grandmother passed away, my mother found my grandfather's birth certificate that was most likely a copy of the original. His Mother's name was a single Native American name. Father was unknown. His birthplace was listed as unknown also or something related. My mother believes he had his name legally changed when he became an adult, to the name he had been using since he had run away and this was a replacement birth certificate.

The truth is, it is very possible, your families history does not exist because it is fabricated. Even though I know my grandfather's original name is now known, I still cannot trace him. Some people's information was never recorded and it is that simple.

Re: My parents secretive past...
Hi Op
I kinda know what your going through, as my dad was also adopted, and always felt very out of place.

He searched for years to find his biological family, and coincidently one year he came across someone who thought they knew who his mother was. I was just a kid so I don't know the details of how that came to be at all, since he had no details or names to go on.

The man that adopted him was sorta a mafia type dude. Wealthy man who ended up literally betting the farm in one of his dealings, and lost it. Shortly after, he died.
Since he was the one that brought my dad home, once he died, my dad had no one else that cared. His "mom" shipped him off to New York to stay with "relatives" he'd never met.

He ended up finding out he was a black market baby. We found his real mother, but she wouldn't give us any information on his real father. They didn't stay together.

My dad died recently, never knowing who his parents really were. I'm sure he knows now, but it created alot of problems for our family because of health issues for one.
Epilepsy runs through his mother's side very strongly, and continues even to my own daughter.

I can remember several phone calls where my dad just felt lost out in this big world alone, and seemed as if it just instantly hit him, each time he'd call.

He had no "place", and couldn't find it within the family he created because he didn't feel as if he was a whole person to begin with.

So, Op...I hope you find what you're looking for, and feel satisfied in the end with your results.
Everyone deserves to know from where they come.

Re: My parents secretive past...
I know something about all these subjects from personal experience. just a couple of things --

1) The baby market idea, while possible, is a stretch. Adoptive parents have a thousand and one reasons to keep things secret.

2) That being said, your unusual characteristics and experiences might indicate something else, such as MK ultra / Monarch experimentation.

3) Have you had DNA testing? I did, and I have these odd mutations I don't even want to talk about or know more about.

In any case, I think the more you put this stuff behind you and realize that you are your own person, regardless of the circumstances that brought you into existence, the better. It's your life now, claim it, renounce the past and whatever sick people influenced it, and take what is yours, which is your life and your own identity.

that's a nice thought...still it gives pause when my children/grandchildren eventually turn up with problems we never saw coming but could have. Going to the doctors these days your history is all important. I have none. Oh well..

I do live it to the fullest...every day. I am a successful business person, with many friends who are like a family to me. Still no story is as good with out all of it.

i think ill do the dna tests.

Yes, having the family medical history ready might give an indication as to what to look out for. But... whatever is coming is coming.

Just play it safe: life as healthy as you can. And don´t worry about it. This will help more than knowing the family´s med history.

Re: My parents secretive past...
I would find a good lawyer in the state where you were born or adopted. (They may well be separate states.) Make sure the lawyer has contacts with a top notch Private Detective. It will cost you a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. They'll pry the records open even if it takes a court order to do so. Finding your bio-parents won't be difficult. At least in term of "WHO" they are. Where the are now may take a bit longer.

Prepare yourself for seriously painful possibilities. Maybe you were the product of a rape, or incest? Maybe a run-away marriage that was annulled by the parents after their daughter was pregnant. (Used to happen - you didn't state your age...but that kind of thing was common in the 50's and 60's.)

You could be a black market baby. Bought and sold. I was! And it really didn't matter to me. But I've known other adoptees that were devastated by the fact that their birth mother or father sold them one way or another.

Find a good lawyer and get the records opened legally. It can be done. Then a private detective can probably find you mother (and maybe father if known) providing they're both living, in a matter of days or even less if they're both in the US and legal citizens, etc.

Don't put too much stock into the psychics. They're usually expert at reading what you feel and exploring those issues. Could you be a "hybrid" or "star-child?" Maybe. But it's a long shot. Don't let that high IQ take you down improbable paths until you've eliminated the more possible paths.

There is clearly something your adoptive parents are hiding or don't want to know. It could be anything. Remember, having a baby outside of a marriage was a huge shameful thing for any woman to go thru. Most didn't dare show their faces in public during a pregnancy and often moved and changed their names and became an "imaginary" respectable Widow after the baby was born if they were keeping it.

Adoption was common back in the 1950's and 60's and 70's. Abortions were not easily available - illegal in may states, and many women could not or would not terminate a pregnancy even if it meant shame and disgrace on them for many years!

Get a good lawyer and force the issue. But be prepared for whatever you find. You may have nothing in common with the birth parents except some DNA. Do not expect to feel anything in particular. Love, parental affection, etc., would have formed years ago but never had a chance to do so. So you may be quite non-plussed when you do meet your birth parents. Go into meeting them with NO expectations for anything other than knowing the truth. If a friendship or a relationship develops - then great. And it does not, that's okay, too. You've done well so far without them and you will continue to do so.

I'll say a prayer for you. The doors will open when you are ready and wiling to have them open. Pray about it, too. It couldn't hurt!

Re: My parents secretive past...
I'll have to say, no, she's not attention seeking, just seeking. I'm in the same boat myself, adopted with no access to my birth records. It's difficult when you know nothing of your heritage... those with known parents can't even begin to fathom what they take for granted.
