Hello. 
My name is Mihaela Ionescu, and i'm a reporter from Romania, from Antena 1, the biggest television in my contry. Recently I found a impressionant story of a adopted girl.
When she was two years and a half, in 1990, her natural mother gave her up for adoption to a family in Texas. Her adoptive mother name is Violetas Kilis. She named this girl CRISTINA Violetas Kilis.
For two years, the familly from Romania received photos from the Kilis familly, and a newspaper in which was told the story of Kilis family who adopted a girl, and a boy of color (this later).
I hope we can colaborate and maybe we can help this poor woman to find her girl again. She is very sorry and the only thing this woman wants is to see again her girl in her arms, one more time in this life. I am waiting for a response if anyone can help me with some informations. Thank you.
