There comes a time in many people's lives where they are put in the unfortunate situation of having to put a child up for adoption. When this happens, the child moves in with an adoptive family and is given a brand new life. More often than not, adopted children become curious about their biological parents as they get older, but not this man. It wasn't until his adoptive mother brought up his Facebook page that he realized something strange was going on in his life.
27-year-old Nathan Boos of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin had no complaints about his quiet life. In fact, he was more than happy with the way things were going for him. After he studied welding at Chippewa Valley Technical College and did some professional soul searching, Nathan started his very own trucking company.

Nathan may have been doing well with his career, but he was having a whole lot of luck and happiness with his personal life, as well. Not only did Nathan finish school and start his own successful company, but he also met the love of his life, Nicole Marie Hein. Realizing they were meant to be, the couple got engaged.

Nathan was too focused on the present to worry about what happened in his past. You see, Nathan was given up for adoption when he was just a newborn. Despite the missing pieces of his past, Nathan never even asked what his birth parents' names were or where they had come from.
Like so many other adopted children, it took Nathan some time to truly feel like he was a part of his adoptive family while he was growing up. It wasn't until he got into junior high school that Nathan finally felt accepted and comfortable with his adoptive family, and after that point, he never felt the need to ask about his birth parents again.

Well, that lasted until about a decade later when Nathan started to discover some things about his past that he had no intentions of ever knowing. And it all began when Nathan’s adoptive father joined him on a work trip from Georgia to Illinois several years ago.
