Teresa Brown is a retired Paralegal, a reunited birth mother, and the sister to an adoptee. She has been around adoption most of her life and is familiar with all sides of the adoption triad. She located her birth daughter when her daughter was 21, and several years later when Teresa's sister asked her to locate her birth family, she was able to do so as well. She believes that all birth family members have a right to discover their answers, regardless of the final outcome. It gives a birth family member closure and peace in knowing. It can either close one door or open another, but either way, answers can finally be found.Review:
