I would say that it is definitely possible and keep at it. However I am wondering if it is actually easier to find an ancestor on the level of say a great grandparent. If you are looking for a birth parent, the pool of people who need to test to show that person as a MRCA is much smaller than if you are looking at a MRCA a few generations back. At least that is the way I see it. I wonder if people who have been into genetic genealogy for a while agree with me on that. Still finding common ancestors further back may provide useful clues, but you have to be careful that they are not taking you down the path of a more distant relationship.

Some luck is involved with whatever you are looking for, but perseverance will create luck. Hoping that you are successful in your search.
