Waiting! It’s the hardest part for me. I’ve shouted for years and this is what has it come to — waiting? Yet, what is it that I wait for? It is now up to an adopted boy [or young man] to find his biological half sister and his biological father. Maybe he won’t even feel the need for such introductions. I cannot myself force this proposed meeting. I must now cease and desist with my seven year quest to make contact with the adoptive parents. The reason of course is to prevent a now impressionable boy from stumbling into something that he cannot understand.
Granted, such contact is a lot to ask for, but then they have taken a lot themselves. I am 100% positive that they knew and have known about me since the hand written extortion letter that the BM sent them. My son was over two years old when I found out about him; never at this age would have I torn him from his mom and dad. Yet, maybe taking that fork in the road was the only way to know who he is, of his life, of his wants and dreams. His parents could have relayed these things to me. However, they would not and as of today have not done so yet. Only by being adjudicated as BF thru an overturning of the adoption would’ve forced them to such an agreement of conditions. The only thing they had to do was call me; I had previously proclaimed of the “window of time” had expired for me to raise him. With these things considered, it is my faulty way of thinking that has caused some of my own grief. Therefore with my last published writings out soon, it will be the morning thereafter that I never mention again Veronica Serio, a once-upon-a-time Executive Director of the now extinct Children of the World Adoption Agency out of Verona, New Jersey, a “Jersey Rules” Adoption Attorney Steven I. Sklar out of Kendall Park, New Jersey, or a corrupt and self-serving New Jersey Department of Human Services. That day, I will silently offer this quest to Joseph my adopted son. And hopeful will I remain, that one day he will begin his own search. — The waiting…, it’s the hardest part.
