    Thanks!

    He's a really great kid --- his siblings are too.

    His mom and I are first cousins and are really close.

    Great family.

    This is amazing and I hope you get contacted!

    My mom did ancestry and ended up finding a number of relatives on my grandfather's side of the family (he too, was adopted). It gave her a lot of information she had been seeking specifically around our Native American heritage. We know what tribe and where they originated but the documents we needed to prove everything were destroyed in a fire years ago.

    Second interview went well and I should know more by the end of the week or early next week. It looks like they will work with me on a transition date so I feel so much better than I did last night.

    So back on the food topic. ..I hate potatoes. I don't like them fried, baked not any. I also don't eat squash, beets , lima beans or zucchini.

    When I was a kid (a LONG time ago) we had to sit at the table until we ate what was on our plate. EVERY night the table would be cleared and I would be there with whatever the potato of the night was . I also hate beef stew, meatloaf and mac and cheese.

    I love green beans broccoli, raw carrots, cukes, tomatoes, asparagus and others though.

    My wife gave me an Ancestry account for my birthday 2 years ago. My dad grew up in orphanages in the 19120's because his father died of complications of injuries sustained in WWI. My grandmother was a nurse and back then there were no child services etc so from 3 years old he was put in the orphanage so that she could work. So because of that we didn't know much of that side of the family history until now. Once we joined I had cousins come out of the woodwork. Two of which came to my 6th birthday party (last time I saw them). I thought that I would never find out their names. I got all kinds of newspaper articles, family history etc. My wife researched and found out the name and location of the 500+ year old church in the Azores that my great grandparents were baptized, and received first communion in. We went there on tour in June and I took pictures of everything. The biggest thrill was that over the alter there was our family crest with our family name. I was almost brought to tears! There are a bunch of other stories that I have because of the work that Ancestry.com did...

    My adoption background is similar to yours. Always known I was adopted, no issues with it, limited info on birth parents/family and medical issues. I've been thinking about researching in order to find medical history. Maryland's records are still closed but it looks like you can ask them to do some digging.

    I hope you find what you are looking for!

    :heart: a fellow adoptee :)

    I'm a potato girl- mashed, baked, fried it doesn't matter I love 'em. Unfortunately there are too many carbs in potatoes and on the advice of my doctor I am cutting way back on them. Rice too.

    Beef stew is another favorite. Odd, I don't mind vegetables in soups or stews. Probably because I can't taste/smell them.

    Curious about your opinion. I think Pat's and Geno's are both overrated. Steve's Prince of Steaks and Jim's are both better (at least the Jim's I had). And Abner's never disappointed, though often it was after a night out in college, so taste buds may have been "altered". I did go to Abner's a couple times in the past few years, and it was as good as I remember.

    Don't mess with the Feng Shui!
    Related to job: The east-facing front door suggests that the sun rises in the east, symbolizing vitality.
    In general: The east-facing front door facilitates good family life, thus suitable for big families seeking harmonious and happy life.

    I don't mind potatoes, but they're only on my plate if they come with the meal - and if I can find someone whose plate needs fries, mashed potatoes, or whatever potato product I have...I'll gladly donate. The only potatoes I really like are sweet potatoes - fried or baked is fine, and no need for all that brown sugar/marshmallow stuff. Plain works for me. Honestly, I'd rather have a small salad with my burger than fries.

    My big culinary Achilles heel is mushrooms. Ugh. They're in everything, too. They taste like metal to me....although I'd probably rather lick a car door than eat a mushroom. I honestly don't see how some hominid years ago was walking in the forest, saw a fungus growing on the ground, and thought, "Hey, you know what? This should go in my mouth!" Also a miracle that the hominid didn't die from eating a poison mushroom.

    How are we not enjoying potatoes?!

    I will eat all of your potatoes. Whatever kind. However you make them.

    As I posted earlier, I am a potato girl all the way. However I have to reduce my carbohydrate intake so I won't be eating as much of them from now on. Bummer.

    I don't like Oreos. I prefer home made cookies. The only store bought ones I love are the windmill cookies that are great for dipping in tea.
