Normally I can find just about anything online, but I can't right now and I really need to! I found out with a quick Google search yesterday that my daughter's bio dad is dead. I found a partial obituary with only his full name and date of birth and death. When you click on it to the funeral home site that hosts it, it indicates that the family is keeping the obituary private. Long story, but I need to find *some* kind of info myself. My daughter was adopted by my current husband, so she doesn't have any legal right to information, even when she's turning 18 this July because she's not "family". You can see why I would like to get the information on my own. I have to tell her about this at some point and although I can only share what I know and that's fair enough, I am wanting to get as many answers for her as I can. It's emotional for me as she's never understood how he could sign away his parental rights and although I've always just said we just couldn't work it out (ultimately the truth), in the back of my mind, I was fully expecting her to ask him these questions herself of her own adult volition. Now she can't. I can PM name, dates details to anyone who knows specifically how to and wants to actively help, but I can tell you that it's San Diego County, CA and the death was Dec 2012. We're living across the country on the east coast now. We no longer have mutual friends. Thanks in advance!
