Finding Myself

On August 11, 1994 i arrived in Rutherford County TN. In 1999, i became a U.S. Citizen as my adoption was finalized. 16 years later, a youtube video was posted by a lady by the name of Delilah; featuring a woman named Ann Marie Shah, sharing her story of survival. In this video, Ann Marie tells the story of how she was allegedly bamboozled out of her baby, Kalisha. She claims a deal was made, but the execution went sour, and her baby was kidnapped.
I am that baby.
I dont know what to think, how to feel, who to believe or where to start. But what i do know, is everything happens for a reason. And after 25+ years.... through Facebook and youtube, a family of 10 i never knew existed, is claiming their search is over, they found me.
I need to know....
I need to try...
I want a chance to know my biological family....
To see if these people claiming to be my blood, claiming they've missed me and longed for me and searched for me for over two decades? Claiming theyve celebrated my BIRTHDAY every year, not knowing where i was, if i was even alive, or if theyd ever get the chance to see or speak to or know me. What are the odds? A baby goes missing in Trinidad and Tobago in 1994 and in September of 2015, through social media, this baby, now an adult with children of her own, is located and contacted.....
I will forever be regret it if i dont at least try to find out what happened, who isnt telling the truth, and who i really am.
Anything helps.
You can't make this up.

*Id also like to add, anyone in or associated with my family in Tn, please dont be offended or feel attacked. This isnt about you. It isnt a shot at you, your reputation, your character, your morals, or any of that. Its about me. And my own personal discontentment that only an adopted child can relate to. You cant say if you were me, you wouldnt have questions....
Mom&Dad...thank you. For every opportunity you provided me with. I genuinely am grateful for you both.
Brandon,Brian,&Blake:: I swear, yall three put the sun in the damn sky. Thats how i always felt about you guys. I felt like the coolest kid in the world growing up with yall. I never imagined any of this being something that could transpire. And i hate how distant we are. I think about each of you daily and pray for you and your families often. Im so proud of how successful you guys are. Seriously. I wish i could be more like you. No matter what....please always know i love all of you more than youll ever know. And none of this pursuit im on, is to offend or disrespect, or slander any of you intentionally. ~xo~ash
