Alright, I apologize for this, but I’m asking for all of your help.
So, about 10 years before I was born, my parents had a baby. Unfortunately, neither of my parents were prepared to have a baby at that time. They both were still in college and had no income. So instead of trying to raise a baby they were not at all prepared for, they gave him up for adoption, using the Catholic church. Since they were in New York, they had to get a closed adoption (Meaning they had no knowledge of who adopted him.) They were, however, supposed to get pictures and information about him, but after the first picture, they got nothing. And the Catholic church did nothing to help them find out what happened to him.
Now, my mom never wanted to give my brother up for adoption. It broke her heart to do it, but my grandparents thought it was the best course of action at the time. And honestly, it probably was. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt my mother or father every time they thinks of my long lost brother, nor does it mean that they wouldn’t kill to see him again.
Now this brings me to the picture. If you know of anyone who was born in Albany, New York, at Albany Medical Center on August 3rd, 1988 who is or thinks they might be adopted, please please contact me. Even if their name isn’t Mathew anymore. I know that this probably won’t help and it’s a long shot, but I need to try and do something… it hurts my mom and my dad, and even my other brother. As for me… I don’t know what to feel. I never knew my eldest brother, but honestly? I think I’d like to. So please, if you know of anyone that matches this description, please contact me via messages/Ask. And even if you don’t know of someone like this, could you Reblog this picture? Please.
I added a picture of my family along with my brother’s information since we don’t have a picture of Mathew. Chances are that he might look like either my mom, dad, or even my brother or I. So… please, reblog this, if you can. And yes, I know how unlikely it is that we’ll find him this way, but… It’s a better chance than doing nothing. So thank you for taking the time to read this.
If there is any additional information you might need, just ask. I’ll be happy to supply it, if I know it of course…
