Has it really been 33 weeks since I updated my live journal? I am in a great relationship, got kicked out of therapy since I was doing well. Nothing new is going on, I am selling Mona Vie now since I started drinking it I have had remarkable changes! If anyone is wanting to be healthy and wealthy let me know by visiting me at eek40@aol.com and asking for a link!

Ok...So I have to get this letter emailed to Mike. Even though its been years since we have talked I have to have a release, and that means him actually reading it! Not me just writting it out and letting it sit in my live journal to rot. Sooooooooo maybe I can write it out here and then email it:)

Hey Mike,

So last night I had a dream about you and thought to myself that its time I wrote to you. Its been a long time since we have spoken and while things have changed in both our lives I think of you and hope and pray that you are doing ok. I am sure we have both changed a bunch in the past few years, I know I have.

I will never pretend to understand what could have happened that you would have ended our friendship without even discussing it with me or telling me, even giving me a clue. But had you given me a clue I know I would have been the first to run away. I have a hard time letting people into my life and always have, I would prefer to always be the one to walk away, it hurts a hell of a lot less that way. LOL! So you walking out of my life hurt like hell! I have gone thru just about every emotion possible. Anger, denial....etc etc. And bottom line is what happened happened. Nothing can change that. I would love to understand what happened. I know a lot of stuff was going thru your life with your Mom's death, I can not ever express how sad I was when she left this world, she was a truely amazing woman and a wonderful Mother. I know you loved her deeply! I am sure that I could have been there more for you during that time, and for that I apologize. No excuses just my apology from the heart. Beyond that I can only say if I ever hurt you again I am sorry.

I owe you thanks for a lot of things. I appreciated how you made me feel, you helped wake up my confidence levels, and got me realize that I had a lot of good to give to the world. You stuck by me through all my bad times and for that there can be nothing greater than the most amazing friend ever, I was not easy to deal with at all! Thank you for standing by me when I was such a nightmare!!! We were always there for each other, we went thru hell and back together. I hope you remember how much I care for you and always will!

Mike you are a truely amazing person, and often I dont think you saw that, I hope that now you have come to a place in your life where you do see all the good inside you. I hope that you have found a wonderful companion in life. I was sad when it didnt work out for you and Greg, he never did give me a lot of details and I respected that. I just always wished it could have worked for the both of you is all. I hope that you most of all are loved and respected in the way you deserve to be.

I am always a work in progress, finding Cyndi changed a lot of my thinking and closed a lot of open questions and concerns for me, helped me find out that who I am is who I am in part because of my nature and in part because of nuture. I am settling down in Stillwater and enjoy it here. I love my new house and I love my dog:) I work out at the gym 5 days a week, and have been working on changing the way I eat. My health isnt always great so I am working on doing what I can to be responsible for myself and only me:) I have become a bit selfish with my time and engery! I say no a whole lot more. And nothing interfers with my workout time.

Anyways Mike, this was important for me to send to you because I want you to know that I wish you nothing but the best in life. If you wish to respond great, but if you do not wish to I totally respect that.
Love you

forever since last update
Guess its been a long time. Shrug..not sure I have anything positive to say which in general would mean for me to stop this entry before I begin it! My house that I hate anyways was vandalized "Mark of Death" written on the doors, plus a window screen broken. I am totally freaked and upset. I have a sty in my left eye the size of a walnut, and my granny is in the hospital. See what I mean. Life goes on, can I vote myself off the island yet? LOL

This is a post that maybe wont make a lot of sense at all. Plus I hate the computer I am on right now so it may make even less sense with the spelling errors.

How is it possible to fit somewhere and with somepeople that you only met a year ago. That you only have honestly known for 1 year total. People that have your blood in them.....yet in a way strangers. How is it possible that when I am here I am home? I have spent a grand total of 10 days since my birth with my Birthmom, yet when I am with her I know that she is my Mom and she knows I am her daughter and that others around us know this also. My half sister is so much like me that it is scary. My Mom and I have the same laugh, the same smile...when looking at a recent photo we took at the aquarium I Have to think hard at first glance to remember which person I am. Strange VERY VERY Strange. But wonderful. For the last few weeks / months maybe I have felt like I dont fit in anyplace at all. Not with my Mom(adoptive) , stepmom and Dad(adoptive) that I am just kind of this appendage that is there to do what is asked of me and to be a slave to Karen and Karas needs. Not while I am here. This is MY family , I dont feel left out. I do have a pang now and again of WHY couldnt have this been my life kinda deal..but that being said I know that the grass is always greener on the other side. My nephew calls me Aunt Aimee without a thought. O'neill doesnt call me that and I have known him most all his life and taken care of him. He knows I am his Aunt but doesnt call me one. With Sirmawn there is NO question I am Aunt Aimee. Why is that little AUNT word important to me? I dont know other than it stands for being part of the family. Where I am not truely yet or may never be with Karens side. These are all positive thoughts in a way. But I do question often what my purpose is in life...if I am meant to stay where I am....move? This is where I fit..but would that be the case if I lived here full time?

Annual birthday letter
Ok bare with me on this one folks
Every year for a long time, other than this year and last I have always taken time about now to write Mike one of these long really thoughful birthday letters, they were always special to me, and I thought Mike, I am not so sure anymore on that. However I havent really thought about it until today for some reason. Alot of this has to do with the fact that I am pms, and the fact that I had not eatten all day, not on purpose, just by accident:) Anyways, its not really a big deal or anything, its just weird that I remembered that his birthday is on Sunday and thought about the letter.
Oh well

What a day
Work wasnt so bad, other than I am sick of it and could use some positive reinforcement.

Flash my Dad and Karens cat was horribly sick this weekend, he was at the vets until yesterday we(read I) brought him home, I felt this weekend we should have put him down then, but Karen wasnt home so she wanted to wait until she got home to make a decision. So yesterday was horrible hes lost so much weight, cant breathe, etc. Today was horrible tried to give him his medicine and he bit me badly, then this afternoon he got the other hand and bit it. He was just so horrible, took him into the vet because karen decided that if the vet said he wouldnt get better he would be put down. So I wait at the vet, for what seemed like forever with this cat making gasping noises, his eyes filling up to the point of tears with each breathe he takes, I walk into the vet the vet comes in and he takes a big breathe and just dies in my arms!
IT was horrible, I am a basket case, and I really dont even like that cat..lol.

Ok I get this email from an orphanage about 1 time a month. Normally I read them, feel bad, move on. Wish I could help, think about adopting 20 orphans...etc. I just wish someone could help this little one so bad!

Yesterday, we received Kacie/Casey who was 11 hours old. Kacie/Casey was born with undetermined sex. We don’t know if the baby is a girl or a boy. I said the baby is too beautiful to be a boy, but some of the people here don’t agree with me! They say some of our cutest babies are boys! ☺

The baby also is abnormal in that the opening for urine elimination is through the intestine. We were concerned when the baby came yesterday that it would die because we could not see any opening for urine to be eliminated but fortunately, for the baby, it can eliminate urine through the rectum.

Kacie/Casey did very well during the night. The baby is taking milk well and is (as we say in the States) cute as a button!

I know there is a family somewhere who will receive this email and step forward to adopt this baby. There is nothing we can do for the baby here in Haiti.

1 year
Well this weekend marks one year since I last saw Mike and actually spoke with him. I am adjusting, better now, somedays are harder than others. I still dont understand what happened last year, and most likely I never will, I will learn to accept that with time.

I know that my life is ten thousand times easier without having to worry about Mike day in and day out. I watch his aol profile on occasion, and it switches from single/ to "seeing a WONDERFUL Man" on a pretty regular basis, which makes me happy(which I know is wrong). But you know Karma does happen, and he will never be happy as long as he treats people the way he does, not my problem anymore. O'neill asked me about him today, which was odd, but O'neill really looked up to Mike, and without a Father in his life any man was really "cool" to him. Its sad. So I guess if I have lived a whole year I can live another without Mike:) LOL I sure hope that he never has the nerve to try and "mend fences" with me, because I refuse this time. No more doormat!

Day in Court day of sadness
I am really looking forward to being in CASA. Today I witnessed soooo much sadness in some of the cases. This needs to be my volunteer work, I feel it stronger than ever. Sometimes its hard to watch the torture that these families are going through but if I can help ONE just one person it will be worth it all. Today in Court many tears were shed by many different people. This one boy stuck out more than anything but he was a juvie case so we dont get them. I just wanted to hug this poor kid. He was so upset, praying to God in court and everything, when the judge released him to his Mom until the trial I wanted to cheer for him. I believe him , not many seem to. Sometimes I get gut feelings and have to go with them. I am anxious to get my first case, which will be in about 2 weeks:) I get sworn in tomorrow at 5pm...that should be interesting.

I am still in a bad mood. But life goes on as it always does.

An update
Hi! Its been awhile since I updated my journal, so I figured I would take some time and jot down some feelings or something.

Life has been going pretty well. Finding my birthmom was definately the dream come true. Whats weird is struggling afterwards. What I mean by that is the fact that I found her , now my search is over, I find myself oddly missing the searching? Weird I know, but I still want to be looking for her in an odd way. I guess after searching for 16 plus years its like I know nothing else but searching. I am entertaining thoughts of searching for my birthfather now.

Life after searching.
Hum...is there any words that could possibly explain what the past 7 days have been like for me? In a word NO! This journey has taken...oh lets see... at the least physically searching for 14 years. Mentally I think since the moment I was born. We talk frequently via emails, instant messages, and the occasional phone call. Its extremly comfortable, we act as though we have talked everyday all my life. I fly out to Columbus Ohio(where I was born) on Feb 19th, which is just a few days away now. I will be face to face with the woman that gave me life! Wow!

The end...of the begining
I cant say or do much right now but paste what I got in an email tonite. To say I am overwhelmed with emotion is an understatement.

Dearest Aimee; I received a letter tonight when I got home from work. That letter was from you!!! I have thought many many times over the years to try to find you, but did not want to hurt you in any way, did not know if you knew you were adopted, what problems might arise if I contacted you, so I thought if it was meant to be that if you wanted to find me that you would find a way and you DID!!! I don't want to go into a lot of detail but wanted to contact you as soon as possible, even tried calling the 1-800 # you left for work but I guess you had left for the day. I am VERY much interested in staying in contact with you and would like to talk to you very much. Aimee, I want to make something very clear from the get go, I very much wanted you and was devasated when I had to give you up, I never ever let March 4th go by without wishing you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I tell you I love you when I do. I am going to give you my work number and my home number we are on eastern time here. I work from 7:45 am to 4:30 pm that number is and my home phone number is . You will now have my e-mail address when you get this letter, and I will answer you back. I also want you to know that you have a half sister, her name is Jennifer and she is 27 years old and her birthday is March 26, 1978. I am sure that it was an emotional time for you writing to me, as it was very emotional for me reading your letter and writing to you. But it was a great kind of emotional. Aimee I hope to hear from you soon. We will talk more and I would love to get to know you better. Much LOVE as always. And I am so glad you found me. Aimee please know that if I could have done things differently I would not have had to do what I did so many years ago, and it was very difficult. When I left you at the hospital I cried and kissed you goodbye and called you my little angel. Again much LOVE Cyndi

Catching up
I havent posted much lately other than pasting search information on my birthmom search. Still no word yet from her, the letter has been sent, hasnt come back to me as undeliverable, so I have to asume she has it and doesnt want contact or is not sure how to reply. Everyday is a waiting game, its frustrating to be so close, yet so far away. I just need to be patient.

My ankle has really been bothering me, up to a 8 on pain scale which it shouldnt be doing at this stage of recovery. I am frustrated with that also. I just wish it would stop hurting, I am under 5,000 on medical bills, and dont want to start over again:(

Mike...still not speaking to each other. But he asks all my friends how I am when ever he sees them..what an idiot.

Apparently this is contact an old friend you havnt talked to in more than 4 years week. I have heard from a good friend in Philadelphia, we havent talked in about 4 years, not because we are fighting, just because of distance. My ex-boyfriend(AND ONLY BOYFRIEND) wrote me a totally random email saying he searched all over the internet for me. Then when I replyed sent me a current picture of him and told me he married Misty, the girl he cheated on me with. And that they have a one year old daughter. Why he wrote me is beyond me, I havent spoken with him in over 8 years. And when I asked why he wrote he hasnt replyed???? WEIRD! At any rate I was glad to hear from my Phily friend, not so glad to hear from Don my ex. Wont he just die when I say after him I realized I was a lesbian! lol.

Family life is ok, still drama all over the place but oh well.
Thats all for now.

Jennifer L. Long - b. 3/26/76
4949 Dunlap Road
Columbus OH 43229

Cynthia A. Long
4580 Lakeside St., # B
Columbus OH 43232

(both Jennifer and Cynthia had previous addresses at:

5940 Parliament Dr.
Columbus OH 43213.

Now this is supposedly the best database out there, very expensive, used by lawyers. Note they both list Parliament as previous address. BUT I do know according to the state of OH they used Parliament in August/2003.

Here is what I would do, write your letter and send it to Grimmell and Lakeside. Send it priority or even overnight, see which one gets kicked back if either.

Another thought, call Donald back, ask him for info on Cynthia's mom and who she married. Maybe I can trace her. Jaymie

**********Okay, first results coming in, some will take longer:
As of 10-2003 Jennifer L Long, still using maiden name, shows no aliases so she must not have ever married.
Address 391 Grinnell Dr Pickerington OH 43147 and this
As of 9-2003 using
5940 Grinnell St Pickerington OH 43147, now note the next one coming in
As of 8-2003, (which is when Cynthia's state id was listed) Jennifer was using
5940 Parliament Dr Columbus 43213

Note the numbers of Parliment and Grinnell, same street numbers, except for the October 2003 which was 391.

Running other checks but for now it looks like Grinnell. Going to run some address checks on that address. Jaymie


Okay, the only Donald A Long in the area I can find in the right age range is
Donald Allen Long in London OH 740-857-1798.

I ran updates and got nada, but checked another database I have and the address I got is the Archmere one and then one zip code over one I hadn't seen before on this base
Cynthia A Long 1309 W St. James Luthern Way Columbus 43228, call directory assistance and see if there is a C or Cynthia listed number at either of these addresses. Make sure you give them the addresses.


That letter is absolutely one of the best I have ever read. I mean that, and I have read alot of them! I can't imagine her not answering.

I will look into info on the brothers and such and get back with you asap. Jaymie

The letter
For those that dont know, I have mailed a letter to my birthmom. I still have no response, and I am still working on figuring out if it was sent to the right address or not. But my searcher sent me a nice email about it.

Dear Cindy,

It has taken me awhile to figure out the best way to write a letter to you , and I guess I figure just to go for it and quit worrying about it. First and foremost I do not wish to cause you any problems by my contacting you. I respect any of your wishes as far as further contact may go.

I was born on March 4th 1971 and I am fairly certain that after years and years of searching for my Birth Mother that you would be her. I was born in Columbus Ohio and placed in foster care as soon as I left the hospital. I have since learned that I was named Elizabeth Ann Sanford at birth , however my foster parents called me Cindy. I was adopted on March 30th 1971 by Bob and Kay McCracken. And renamed Aimee Leigh McCracken. My Dad was in the Air Force and we moved a lot during my childhood. Even to England! I always excelled in reading and began to read at age three. It is still a lifelong passion of mine to sit down with a good book and read. I also love the arts, I attend as many plays and musicals as I can.

I would love to know more about you. I have very limited information about you and the family. I did try to contact you via classmates.com but it still shows that you have not read that email. What kind of work do you do? What are your hobbies?

Here is my contact information if you would like to reach me.

Like I said at first I really do not wish to cause you any pain by contacting you. I would love to get to know you and learn about you. I would really appreciate any medical information you may have and would love to have a current photo of you. I did find your 73 picture on Mt Gilead's website and boy do we look a lot alike in a lot of ways. I have pictures of me I would love to share with you also. Please take as much time as you need to process this information. To put my mind at ease I would like to know if this letter reached you ok. Any of the above contact places would work for that.

Thank you so much for loving me. Thank you for all the difficult choices you had to make regarding my birth.


Heres the searchers response.
