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……..
