    So wonderful to hear Sharon’s story again. Sharon is such a special person and has helped so many, including me. I read her book, I am in her adoption group in Springfield and saw how she worked so hard to give all Missouri adoptees the right to our original birth certificates.

      Thanks, Sis. I am so glad you enjoyed it, as I revealed more than I had previously. Yvonne was a great interviewer, as I felt just like I was sitting down and visiting with my long-time friend instead of a new friend.

    So, I finally made time to listen to this particular podcast. I am so very proud to have both you and Jeanette as my friends. It’s emotional to me because I love you both so much. I am so pleased that Jeanette met her son. There are not enough hugs in the world to let you know how much I love you both. No way that I can understand what you went through.

    • Sharon Fieker Cummins on 08/12/2022 at 9:28 PM

      Thanks so much, Nina, for your comments. Jeanette and I have always felt so thankful to have you as our friend. You have been a strong supporter. Sharon

    I gave my son up for adoption in August of 1987,I was one of 7 kids so when I became pregnant. It scared me and me and the birth father ran away,he actually wanted to keep our baby.but I was only 15 from a Christian family so I went home and my family set up the adoption,it was a closed adoption.my son recently found me and we met face to face I march.
