In 1994, Sally completed a successful search for her biological "roots", through the Adoption Identity Movement (AIM) in Grand Rapids.  Although Sally's bio mother was already deceased, Sally met her bio father and one of her bio brothers later in 1994 (both bio brothers are full brothers, having the same bio parents as Sally).
