My incredible husband was able to track down his whereabouts (or lack thereof) and we met Valerie who shared all sorts of details about my Dad. 3 years ago

Hey my name is Emily Potter I am 16 years of age and I want to find out who my biological father is. I have three younger brothers and a younger sister. My brothers Hunter and Michael and my sister FeDessa have the same father, my brother John lives with his father. I on the other hand don’t know who my father is. I grew up thinking that Hunter, Michael, and FeDessa’s dad was my real dad til I was like oh about 9 years old. The sad thing is that I have three or more guys that could possibly be my dad. My mom told the guy she thought was my dad that she was pregnant with me and he moved away and that was that. I always wonder if that guy has ever thought that he has a daughter out there in the world and if he ever wanted or does want anything to do with me. I always wounder if i ever cross his mind! I want to know him before I graduate but if he denys me I suppose I’ll pull through.I hate going through life not knowing who he is. There are a lot of things that I get from my mother whom is Amanda Potter but I would like to know what I get from my dad also. Well that’s my story so I guess if you have anything that might be able to help me please lemme know! PLEASE!!!!! 3 years ago
Its always been in the back of my mind, and now that I’m 18, I can legally have contact with him if I choose to. I would like him to make the first effort, but if it doesn’t happen soon, I think I’m going to send him a letter and let him know that I turned out pretty good, and I’m still here. 5 years ago
At this moment, I want to meet my biological father at some point in my life.
I am not expecting to discover a prince of a man who has spent the past 28 years trying to find me.
But it would be nice to meet him once. At least, I hope it would be nice, and not end in tears. 5 years ago
My parents had me when my mom was 16 and my dad was 19. I never knew my dad and at some point in my life I put it in my head that they were too you and I never had the courage to ask my mother any questions about him. In reality I knew nothing about him.
On July 20th my aunt received a call from my sister. A sister(1/2 sister) that I never knew I head. While I will admit that I was shocked when I heard all this, for me it was one of the best days of my life. About a week after talking with my sister through email and meeting her, I began talking to my real father. There were so many things that I learned about myself and who I was. At some point in my life I felt it seemed as though I was opposite in many respects to that of my mother. In reality I was just like my father.
The only thing I would say is that attempting to meet your father and being the one doing the reaching out is that you need to proceed with caution. You really don’t know what you will find but as long as it is done in an open, honest, and caring manner then hopefully the gift you receive in return is the best gift that you will ever receive.
For me it was one of the best experiences in my life. There is a lot of pain associated with the experience and for the most part that is do to the question of what could have been if this happened 10 or 20 years ago. But I do have to say that any pain associated with it is so miniscule to the happiness that I have found. 5 years ago
I know I’ll never have the courage to ask my birth mother about him and when I do get the courage it might be too late. I wouldnt want to know my birth father when I’m 30, I think it’s too late and 19 years has gone by and I still haven’t met him. I’m happy having one parent lol 6 years ago
I know nothing bout my birth father, I’m adopted and I’m not comfortable speaking bout this subject to my birth mother. 6 years ago
Last month I had the honor of meeting my birth mother and her family. I love them all dearly! They were so great to welcome me as a part of their family.
My birth mother has since searched out my birth father (for my medical history). I am currently getting to know him through e-mail and instant messaging. Things are going good, and I hope that one day soon this goal will be checked off my list of things. 7 years ago
