Should my story give another searcher the ambition to never lose faith in searching, even when much time passes with no answers, then my purpose for writing will be fulfilled

In her memoir “Out There Somewhere: The True Story of an Adoptee’s Search for Her Biological Heritage” (published by AuthorHouse), author Jane Edith Park shares her story of looking into her past to uncover details about her origins.

Jane’s life as an adopted child was always good, and she never felt abandoned by her birth parents who she never knew. Her adoptive mother explained to her that Jane’s biological mother was only 13 when she gave birth. This raised many questions for Jane, such as who her biological parents were, health issues, and if she had any brothers or sisters.

When Jane married and had two children of her own, she began to wonder if she should find out more about her children’s biological heritage. “Out There Somewhere” chronicles her journey to discover the answers to her long-held questions about her biological parents.

An excerpt from “Out There Somewhere”:

“Four years later, after much correspondence, the investigator admitted he was about to give up. He would supply me with a computer readout of all the people in Ohio by the last name of my birth mother that was written on my original birth certificate. His feeling, and that of my husband, was that most, if not all, of the information on this certificate was fictitious. After ten years, was I searching for the wrong people? Was I celebrating a birth date that wasn’t really mine?”

Jane uncovered misinformation related to her birth, and she ran into dead-end after dead-end in a search that would span over 11 years. Finally Jane learned her biological parents’ identities, meeting them along with her 10 siblings, birth mother’s five and biological father’s five.

Jane says, “Should my story give another searcher the ambition to never lose faith in searching, even when much time passes with no answers, then my purpose for writing will be fulfilled.”
