I can not thank you enough for paying such a tribute to my first mom, Dottye, on this the 38th anniversary of her death. I know she is looking down and smiling. She liked to be seen, she loved to be noticed. Thank you Mr. Blundo!

I truly hope that someone has the missing piece to Wendy's puzzle. She deserves to to have the complete picture. Please contact her if anyone has ANY information. No matter how small you may think it is, it may be just what she needs to find her answers. Great article and best of luck in your continued journey, Wendy.

I hope this article gets Wendy some more info on Dottye and maybe even on her birthfather. I have that info for my kids and it doesn't seem fair that not all adoptees can get that once they turn 18 y/o. Dottye was beautiful.

After reading this story I hope that Someone will know something and be gracious enough to share it with Ms. Barkett. Sounds like she deserves a break here

Terrific piece which demonstrates Wendy's courage.
It's a no-brainer that adoptees should have access to their history and this article is a step forward to that possibility.

Hello, When I was a little girl, which I am 91yrs young now, I had several conversations with your Mom at the school house in Reynoldsburg she would hold my hand and we talked about when a girl becomes a women and what nature brings to a women once a month, back in those days parents did not discuss mother nature. She was a very nice lady. We had many talks, you may contact me at [email protected]

The day Wendy called me was the most surprising day of my life, and has culminated in one of the greatest relationships I never knew I was missing. We both feel sorry that we missed out on a childhood together, and that those who would be most likely to know and tell the truth about things have passed on, but every day I feel so lucky that we have each other now. If you know anything at all about our mom, please pass it along.

Wonderful article about the courage and determination to find the truth. I am sure this will bring inspiration to others looking for their birth parents as well. Best of luck Wendy in your search.
