On the day Jeffrey Hannasch’s daughter was born, a nurse came to him with a long questionnaire on his family’s medical history.
“I won’t waste any time or any trees,” he said, handing her back the paperwork. “I’m an adoptee.”
“Oh, you’re one of those,” the nurse said.
One of those.
Encounters like that hospital conversation six years ago have always left Hannasch, who lives in Falcon northeast of Colorado Springs, wondering about his origins.
Two years ago, he set out to do something about it. He went in search of his birth parents. His search produced more than he expected.
