Hi, don't know if I am who you are looking for... I was adopted in 1959, my birth parents were Eleanor Grimes and Leonard Parkinson. I only received my adoption file in the last few days. I would very much like to contact Eleanor so would appreciate it if you could let me know if this is a valid search. My name at time of adoption was Linda Parkinson, dob 17.3.58 (Baptized at Top o the Brow on 18.5.58). I have a very touching letter from Eleanor dated 30.11.59. Hope you will be in touch.

Wendy,

It is 4 years since Susan posted and she may no longer be looking for replies. Try clicking on her name to send a personal message. Genesreunited will inform her by email if she still has the same email address.

Good Luck.
