Hi, I just need some advice....My Grt Aunt ( Who passed away a couple of years ago ) put some children up for adopotion. I know she brought up one daughter herself but it looks like she may have put up four other children for adoption ( I'm not sure myself how many she did put up for adoption ). My mother would love to make contact with these people but I'm not sure if it's my place to start doing this. As much as I would like to try and make contact , I keep thinking these people firstly might not want contact or not know that they have been adopted. How do you go about this in the right way?????? Maria.
