Hi everyone, it’s Paul.

Happy Mother’s Day! I’d like to thank all the moms out there who have supported me throughout my journey—you have shown me a level of compassion and concern and affirmation that only a mother can show, and I send you my very best wishes today.

I’d...

Hi everyone, it’s Paul.

In this strange and difficult time I’m wishing that all of you are staying safe and healthy, and managing this crisis with kindness and grace. As for me, I’ve been staying indoors and spending more time with my daughter Emma, which has been a ble...

Hello everyone, this is Paul.

Today is my 56th birthday. But it’s just the fourth time I’ve been able to celebrate the actual date of my birth.

Before that, I celebrated a birthday that belongs to someone else—the real Paul Fronczak. It was only after I discovered my tru...

Hello everyone, it’s Paul.

Firstly, I’m sorry I haven’t posted on the site in a while. I’ve had to change jobs and things have been a bit hectic, but now I’ll be posting much more regularly. I want to keep everyone as up-to- date on my search as I can. Your input and su...

Hey everyone, it’s Paul. Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday, which on it’s own is nothing remarkable. But it was only the fourth time I celebrated on the actual date of my birth—October 27. Before that, I was always given cake and presents on someone else’s birthday—t...

Hi everyone, this is Paul. Every once in a while I’ll see a spike in the number of emails I receive on my website. It’s always great to hear from anyone who has come across my story, and it’s especially great when lots of people write at the same time—it makes me feel...

When I started the search for the real Paul Fronczak, and for my own identity, one of my guiding principles was that I would leave no stone unturned. No matter how crazy something sounded, I would go anywhere and do anything if it might lead me closer to the truth.

Sure...

Hey everyone, it’s Paul. Today—April 26—marks a very special birthday in my life. It’s special because it used to be my birthday, but it no longer is.

To be more precise, April 26, 1964, is the day the real Paul Joseph Fronczak was born in Michael Reese Hospital in Chic...

I recently got a note from someone who asked me a simple question. “What is your actual goal when you put posts on Facebook?” she wrote. “There are many people out there who follow you. What do you actually need?”

Her note made me think about the real reason for keeping...
