Angela Glosser, PhD candidate in sociology, always knew she was adopted, but it wasn’t until a few health scares in 1994 that made her look up her biological mother and grandparents.
All she had was a birth certificate with the delivering doctor’s name on it. Taking a deep breath and crossing her fingers, Angela gave him a call. At first the doctor did not recall delivering her, but after a few questions and a trip down memory lane, he remembered.
“I know your grandparents. I had coffee with them today.” he said. “I could call them and see if they would like to talk to you.”
Without hesitation Angela said yes. Later that night she was able to have the first of many conversations with her grandparents.
Although Angela maintained limited communication with her biological mother she kept in contact with her biological grandparents. It took about a year and a few more phone conversations before Angela was able to meet them in person. Once she finally met H. Maurice and Lois Beaver she instantly knew they were great people.
