Dear J. Graham:
Sat Siri Akal Ji:
If you believe you are a Sikh, and follow the basic teachings of a Sikh, you are a Sikh. Moreover, there are MANY people around the world who believe as Sikhs and call themselves Sikh and have not taken Amrit. Amrit is something that is a choice, not a compulsion, in the Sikh faith.
That said, it is my prayer that you find a way/place to take Amrit, since it is clear your soul longs for this. You might try this for starters: http://www.sikhnet.com/Directory It is a directory on Sikhnet for Sikhs to find other Sikhs.
I cannot tell where you live, but there are many Sikh communities who would consider it a priviledge to baptise you (you'd have to arrange it ahead of time).
Good luck. Guru bless you always,
