Finding Home

My birth search began in the early 80s when I turned 18, a journey

that has taken me from phone calls, pre-internet research, knocking

on doors and meeting in back parking lots at night, to DNA matches

and a blackmarket business run by a small town doctor that sold

approximately 200+ babies with their history erased. In 1997, after

13+ years of searching, I broke the story of the Hicks Clinic and

doctor Thomas Jugarthy Hicks, a baby seller.  

It continues today as I facilitate other adoptees and their families

throughout the searching and striving to find closure, peace of mind.

Hearts heal when truth is revealed and restored to those who have

lost medical and historical ties through illegal and legal adoption.


As an researcher and 'adoptee' searching my entire life for family, I

want you to know to keep digging and moving forward and you're

not alone. My life has been a continuous reminder that God is in

control and guides those that seek Him. Jesus loves you.

Your familial history and medical information is your right to know.  Embrace your life and what you share with others and know you're loved no matter what you find in your search. God has been there every step of the way for me and I want you to know you're not in this alone. 

If you are one of the Hicks Babies or connected to the Hicks Clinic and want assistance with your search or just want to find out more, visit the McCaysville Lost and Found page of this site. 


If there's one thing in life I'm sure of...its that God loves you and knows who you are and has known you from the beginning. If you have never heard the plan God has for your life it starts with this...

God so loved the world that he gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish but have everlasting life-John 3:16


The Son God sent was Jesus, Yeshua Hamashiach, who died a horrible death through crucifixion for our sins. We are all sinners and Jesus died for us. He took the fall for what he didn't do. Why? Because He loves us. 

God makes it easy for us to come to Him...through Jesus as our Savior, a personal relationship with Him.


We are all sinners and must repent, ask Jesus to come into your heart, start reading the Bible to learn about Him, and find a local community of believers where you can spend time and grow.

Until you find a local church community that teaches Gods Word, I recommend Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar, CA. Raul Ries and his wife Sharon are awesome leaders and teachers-you can stream the services and get support from CCGS at
