I will introduce myself. My name is Amy. I was born in Indianapolis Indiana in 1965. I was adopted from the Suemma Coleman Home for Unwed Mothers. I began this roadtrip about two years ago. I have been inactively searching for about ten years. I began my search with St. Elizabeth Coleman in January 2004. I was working on the floor when I got the call that she supposedly refused contact. I began to search feverishly. It very nearly ran me and my family into the ground. I realized that I had to let it go. At this point I began to get more politically involved. It was a better way for me to redirect my anger at the system.

It was about six months ago that I realized that this agency was just as bad as all the rest. I was raised believing this agency was above the rest. Sadly this isn't true. I met a natural mother from that maternity home. I now know how my own natural mother was treated during her stay at the maternity home. It just angers me beyond belief. I feel that the State of Indiana and all the former maternity homes owe her, me and all our family members an apology.

I have been writing the state legislature of Indiana. I have become actively involved in several organizations that believe in an adoptee right to access. As we all write on this, we will provide information, our thoughts, our feelings and things we see needing change. You will see links to other blogs and webistes providing solid quality information.
