Our first story begins in San Antonio, TX, with Kari Spencer, her husband, Dean, and their two little boys. For years Kari's adopted parents tried to conceive before finally deciding to adopt; they adopted her when she was just 11 days old. Unbeknownst to them, they were actually pregnant with Kari's sister, who was born just eight months later. Kari never doubted she was loved, but constantly struggled with acceptance issues. After 38 years of feeling like an outsider, she decided to seek out her birth parents to get answers to a multitude of questions that had plagued her for years. Her individual search uncovered devastating records, revealing that her birth mother had apparently abandoned her. With little else to go on, will the "Find My Family" investigative team be able to track down her birth parents so that Kari can find the closure she needs to start a new chapter in her life?
Next the "Find My Family" team travels to Asotin, WA to meet 36-year-old Jennifer Curtis, her fiance, Brett, and her two children. Having always known she was adopted, Jennifer has been searching for her biological family since she was 14. All she knows is that her birth mother was 16 when Jennifer was born, and that her birth mother's neighbor adopted Jennifer right away. The neighbor had four children, all boys, and desperately wanted to add a girl to the mix. Jennifer also knows that she has an older brother who was given up for adoption as well. Throughout her years of searching, Jennifer even hired a private investigator, but even with the added help it has been one dead end after another. Now it's up to Tim, Lisa and our search team to help Jennifer find her family - and what they discover will change Jennifer's life forever.
