Is the reward in the giving or getting?

Last week I went to my local bank to make a deposit.  When I entered the bank’s lobby,  it was quiet and there was only one teller, who greeted me in a very professional manner and with a smile.   Then she asked:  “Aren’t you the guy who helps people find people?”  I smiled and said “Yes, I am!”  The teller lowered her head ever so slightly as if she was pondering what to say.  Then she looked up quickly and asked:  “Do you think you could help me?”  “Perhaps.  What can you tell me?”  I replied.

Apparently, this woman gave birth to a baby girl some twenty eight years ago but gave up the baby for adoption.  The teller further explained that, at the time, giving up her baby seemed to be the right thing to do for several reasons.  Now, the woman feels as if something is missing or she needs to fill a persistent emptiness. Now she just wants to know if the little girl (who is now a woman) has any desire or need to meet or know her birth mother.

This story exemplifies exactly why we do what we do.   There are hundreds, if not thousands, of similar stories, like the New York girl who in 1969 gave up her twin boys and wants to know……..

Young and Lost

Monica went missing on the evening of October 1, 2003, she was 16 years old at the time, and police fear she may be in danger. She was last seen at her aunt and uncle’s home near Balmorhea, Texas and it is believed that she left the residence between 11:00 pm and 7:30am the following morning. Monica’s family is unsure on the reasoning behind her leaving, though she may have to meet someone, possibly whom she met through the internet. She was on anti-depressant medication and suffers from low blood sugar and may need medical attention. Monica lost over fifty pounds following the death of her father in 2000 and was hospitalized for anorexia nervosa. Monica was a junior at Alpine High school at the time of her disappearance but was known to be a very religious person. There is a lost girl out there, while her case is still unsolved.
