FW: Are you my mother?
When Bob from Exploring Winnipeg and beyond posted his search for his birth mother and the story behind it I gladly share this story so that it can reach more people who maybe know someone who knows someone who and so on.
plus also he bribed me “I’ll stuff you full of beer, women, and hotdogs if you come visit.”. I mean, free Winnipeg hot dogs, I just can’t say no… Oh yeah, women as well, almost forgot but to be honest, it’s the hot dogs that I’m after here…
Are you my mother?
To make a long story short I have tried everything but going through the Ottawa phone book and cold calling people who share my last name. Then I got to thinking I have a website that is seen by hundreds of people every day. Maybe one of them knows who I am? Maybe one of them has access to resources I do not have. Maybe one of them knows Oprah or Ellen? Long-shot I know but hey nothing ventured nothing gained.
Are YOU my mother?
My basic birth information is as follows, for obvious reasons I cannot disclose everything but someone out there has the other half of this puzzle maybe we can complete the picture together.
The story goes that in the late 1968 or very early 1969 my mother was a young twenty year old stenographer and typist working in the Ottawa/Hull region of Ontario possibly for the Police or Government Service. She may have had a tryst with someone working in the service and produced me in the process.
