WINEERA

Kia Ora,

I'm not sure if i am doing the right thing, but i have had a very strong urge to find my natural mother, and in reading the other panui's, i feel that this may be a good start, and very huge first step.

I've never let it be publicly known that i am adopted, not that i'm embarrased or anything, but it through fear of rejection.

I have been told my natural mother's full name, but at this point, i feel that i would be invading her privacy if i shared her full name, but her surname is Wineera. There was a point a few years ago, just after i gave birth to my eldest daughter, when i contacted a Wineera from out of the phone book, he asked me to ring back but i never did. I was scared he'd used that time to contact her, and i wasn't ready for what his reply to me might have been.

I have been looking on different websites to see if i can find any pictures from the Wineera family, just to see if there is any resemblence.

I am living in Auckland with my 3 beautiful children and i am also married. I have no knowledge of who my father is at all. At times I feel incomplete, like i'm half a person, because i don't know who/what the other half of me is. If she does not want to know of me then i will be ok with it, but for the sake of my children, i would like some info. If anyone could help me i would be very very grateful.

Wether you feel you are doing the right thing or not, only you will know. And if the urge is strong within you do to so, then follow your feelings and as you say the first step is always the hardest and the biggest, but for each step you take from there, will become the day that brings you closer to what you seek for yourself and your children.

The steps you take to fullfill the void, may be long or short, it may be promising or disheartening, but stay strong, be persistant, and look to the positive side of things,cause out of everything good comes.

There are a awesome bunch of members here on this site, who for some, a taking the first huge steps such as you, or have found, or are still searching for their whakapapa.

We are here to awhi each other, to listen, and to share, so I wish you all the best in your search and there may be other members here who may have some information, links etc for you to start at.

If you go to the 'Names Being Researched" at the top of this page, and then type in 'Wineera' in "the search list", you will find a posting for Wineera from nic31.

Kia kaha Jtek

Kia ora jtek

I just wanted to show my support, as you begin your journey, be strong, persistant, and acknowledge your feelings and do what you feel is right for you and your whanau.

Just some suggestions:

You could try doing a search in the google search engine.

www.familysearch.org has a few Wineera names there if you haven't already tried that one too.

You could possibly prepare yourself by having some questions ready to ask and practice an introduction for when you are calling these people from the white pages, prepare yourself with what you might say if you actually do happen to come across your mother, so that it doesn't seem so overwhelming and become fearful.

Take care and I wish you all the best on your journey, and just know that things will happen in their own time, if you want it to.

Kia kaha - be strong

Thank you both for your kind words and your wisdom. It's very encouraging to know that people who have no knowledge of me actually care.

Thank you for support

Kia ora
If you live in Auckland there are wineera families there. There is also alot in Taupo & Rotorua. But somehow i feel your best chance of locating your mother is Taupo because i know of someone there who adopted out a child many years ago. and i think if she is the right one she will only be too happy to meet you.
