Dear Chris and Staff,
Thank you, thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!I I ca not even begin to tell you how happy I am that you have found my brother. You are an angel sent from heaven to me. Now my 15 year mystery is nearly over. I hope that my contact with him goes as well as the case went for you and your staff. Please know that what you have done will make me grateful forever.
Again I ca not say thank you enough,
Not sure if you remember me, you found my biomom for me late in 2008.
I was not able to make contact with her right away, and then did not want to call over the Christmas holidays, and then she was screening her calls, but I guess finally curiosity got the better of her and she answered my call today.
I ca not even describe how great the moment was when I realized that she was as excited as I was. Everyone already knew about me, she shared with her husband right away and was crying and shaking. But she composed herself quickly (more than I can say for myself!) and we talked for a good while. She is going to put me in touch with my half sisters, since she does not have email herself, and I am excited for that, too! And I am going to send her photos... she was not 100% sure who my biofather was, maybe that will clear things up, I do not know.
Anyway it went really well, I think, and again thank you so much for not just finding her but all of your guidance about how to make this contact! Please let me know if there is more that I should be aware of or should make sure I do - your insights when we talked were really helpful and there was a ton I had not considered.
Best of everything to you, Audrey.................ND
Keep up the good work. As long as records remain closed and adoptees are treated as 2nd class citizens, services like yours may be the only means for adoptees to actually get what is their birthright. God bless you and Chris and all the staff of Kinsolving.
Well, that is it then. you guys were awesome, I really appreciate it. I am envious of the fact that your job has the capacity to bring so much meaningful joy into peoples lives. If I can not send you wine or some silly stereotypical California touristy item, hopefully I will at least get a chance to pass some referrals your way if I encounter anyone searching!

Just wanted to give you an update.....I have made contact with my birthfamily in a very positive way! We have been emailing, sending pics and talking on the phone since April. I have spoken to all remaining siblings except for one. I am flying to SC (Charolotte and onto Florence) next Thursday. If everything goes according to plan I will be able to meet them all! It should be interesting. I am so glad you were able to get me the information! The regret is that I did not do it sooner!
Take care, Dee (not sure if you keep records ect and do not see a reference number to tell you who I am........)

I spoke with my daughter today. All went perfect. She was calm, sweet, understanding, and very kind to me. She did not know that she was adopted but wondered because her parents were older.
Thank you for such wonderful guidance!!! We are going to get to know each other. Our conversation went wonderfully! I am so thankful and happy!
I will let you know how things go.
I can never say thank you enough!
Sincerely, Linda ...WA
I do want to thank Kinsolving for finding my son. I started searching when he turned 18. You were the third company I had hired and I really did not have any expectations about him being found. When I received the information I was shocked. Matthew lives 5 min. from my house. Even though he was not told he was adopted he had some doubt and we talked for 30 min. the first night I called him. Within a week we went together for a DNA test and that confirmed it. It was a great feeling finally knowing who he is. Thank you and everyone involved that helped with my case.
Christine, Thank you so much for this. I will send you a progress update on what happens from this point forward.
I would like to personally thank you for closing a huge door that was open in my life. While I know there are many other challenges that I might face meeting my family, you have given me for the first time in my life information on who I am as a person and the hope I can finally see other people who I resemble and understand who and what I am.
God bless you
I have intended to write before now, but have been in such a happy fog, I did not get to it. My daughter and I have communicated briefly since Dec. 23 and I hope to meet her soon.The holidays, etc. have prevented that from happening, as yet. She, her husband and my son did meet for lunch and had a wonderful, fun time. He said they just kept staring at each other...was a bit like looking into a mirror. She is almost identical in looks and personality to my youngest daughter. Both my other two daughters have sent her lots of pictures and they are slowly getting to know each other. We are trying to take this by baby steps...not wanting to completely overwhelm her or ourselves, but I can hardly wait to spend some time with her in person. I am amazed that we have practically lived in each others back yards for most of these years, she and my son were at the same college at the same time (they both breathed a sigh of relief that they did not date each other!!!).....on and on it goes.
So..........now I have 4 children and 8 grandchildren...how wonderful. I can not thank you enough for having the know-how to get this done. Keep doing it ...you are changing lives for the better.
There is no way that I can ever thank you enough for the search. You have made my life complete
Hello Chris, I thought you would be happy to hear that my birthdaughter called me last night.
She told me that any of her personal friends that know her best would tell me that one of her worst fears was after her adoptive mom passed away that she would be alone in the world.
Now she is so happy to know that she has another mom and family. We had a wonderful talk. I think that I can be quite sure that all will fall into place. We have so much in common.
Thank you for what you do too. I will be forever grateful!
Bye for now, Linda
