Disturbing Survivor emails this week contained a terrifying photo (below) along with a desperate plea for help:
“Seth I recently found this photo in an old box that was sent to me by a stranger on my birthday. Do you think it has anything to do with my real mom? What is going on? Please help – JD.”
I wrote back to JD asking for more info and she wrote me back as follows:
“I am adopted. About a year ago, I put a notice on this website that hooks up adopted kids with their birth parents. My parents only knew her first name, “Lucy,” so I knew it was a long shot. Then on my birthday I got this strange present in the mail-this photo, wrapped in a very old-fashioned box. I don’t know what it means. There was no note, no card, nobody signed it. What does it mean?”
Of course I implored “JD” to show this photo to her adoptive parents immediately and together they could decide what to do. She wrote back.
“Seth when I showed the photo to my adoptive mom SHE FREAKED OUT! She wanted to burn it. She tried to take it from me I had to run out of the house and hide it. Now I’m really freaked out. Can you ask people what does it mean?”
