Wordless Wedensday

My Dad is a very wise man who can read a book and years later tell you all about it. He was born in Hills, MN in 1932 and was adopted by Ruth Gwendola Converse and her husband Frederick William Kubberness. In 1990 or so I started to look for his biological family and found his sister's and an Aunt. They had been looking for him ever since their mother's death in 1989. Since then they have had a reunion and keep in touch. It was something I had always wanted to do for my dad.
Knowing how important your roots are made me realize that not everyone knows there's, which is sad. But good things can always come from searching and finding the treasure chest you have been looking for. It did in this case, so never give up on those road block you encounter, just go around them an keep your adventure alive. You'll find what your looking for, or maybe it will even find you.
