I am searching for my Grandson who was put up for adoption and was adopted by his foster parents. His name was and may still be Josiah Alan Spence,he was born on January 25,2008.I fought to get Josiah for 2 yrs but it was a losing battle since neither Michigan nor Kansas where I live were willing to accept responsibility of which state was in charge of my Homestudy,which made my Homestudy quite painful. I hope no one else has to go through what I went through only to lose my Grandson to strangers. I hope and pray I find him and I can make sure he was well taken care of and loved because I know with me he would have been wanted,loved and known where he came from and that we fought for him.We didn't want him to go anywhere but with us his Real Family who has loved him and still do with everything we have. #1
