I've wondered about him everyday since the day of his birth, 9.22.69, ft. worth, TX

We were high school sweethearts, and very much in love for almost two years. We were going to get married, then his mother changed her mind and wouldn't sign the papers, because we were 17 yrs old. My parents wouldn't allow me to bring a newborn into our home, because we had a 4 year old baby sister. We were living in a very small 1,000 sq ft 3 bdrm home. 6 kids, 2 adults, 1 bathroom. It was hard for all of us, but the more I talked to the people and the nuns at the Catholic Charities of Dallas, I realized that my dreams of being a mother and us two kids who were both 17 yrs of age, was never going to become a reality. I was just being selfish and because the baby was very much loved the entire time that I carried him, I had to be the bigger person, and give my child the life that he deserved. I wanted to die, the day that i had to say goodbye. I thought that it was the worse thing to ever happen to me. But the reality wasn't about me at all. It was about me, making the right decision for my son. I never wanted him to want for anything at all, and I wanted for him to be loved and cared for by some parents who were not able to have children of their own. My wish was for my son to be loved unconditionally, for him to have the sweetest mother and father, for him to be nurtured from a baby to an intelligent young man. With me being so young to become a mother myself,and I had no financial means to give this baby everything he deserved. Of course I didn't see all of this at the beginning. I just knew that I was doing the best thing, that I ever could, by giving my little boy up for adoption. The day that I had to say goodbye,I got to hold him for over an hour. Just staring down at his beautiful little face. Well letting him go was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. I just want to say to him, that I still do and forever will love you. I'm very sorry that things turned out like this for you, me and your father. I know because of the love that I felt for you, is the only reason that I could hand your over to the nurses that day, and saw you for the last time, that you were going to have the best life ever. All of my family and Rickey's family have always wanted to meet you one day. I totally understand if you never want to meet me. Just please understand that I did the best thing for you, and you will always have my unconditional love.

both birth parents are of white descent
