On Monday, January 1, 1973, you delivered a baby boy in Fort Worth, Texas. It appears a young pregnant woman who most-likely didn’t have many choices at the time for her tough predicament. For over 20 years my friend, Jack has been searching for you—his mother. If you have wondered if life has been good to your son, you have probably run into the same frustrating dead-ends in being able to locate him as well.
19-year old Patricia Gayle Johnson from Idaho typed on his original birth certificate as his birth mother appears to be fictitious. Was it a decision you made to remain anonymous or perhaps part of a more disturbing story you knew nothing about? Apparently, the politician/lawyer handling Jack’s adoption found vulnerable mothers in a bind and conveniently offered to help them place their babies for adoption. I am sure the lawyer forgot to mention to you that he had an interstate adoption scam going on and your baby born in Texas along with many others would be handed off to new parents in the State of New York. No home studies, no placing agencies, and neither the State of Texas or the State of New York seem to have had any knowledge that a legal professional was illegally profiting from new mother’s losses with no paper trail. Sadly, I believe Jack’s heartache in not being able to locate you is because of the lawyer’s deception.
By chance if you are reading this letter and are Jack’s birth mother or somebody that might have knowledge of any information, no matter how small, that could help in this matter, please let me know. I will understand if you choose to remain anonymous. Sometimes there are no easy answers for where we are at in our lives at particular time or place. However, all I am praying for as a New Year’s Miracle is for birth mothers and more adoptees to come forward with the the truth to put an end to one lawyer’s cruel, selfish motives. I have enclosed a PO Box in case you want to pass on any pertinent facts without identifying yourself. It would mean all the difference in the world as a way of finding healing and closure.
