I think I have come to the end of my search, what is my best course of action here. This relates to finding my mother, how best to broach the subject without fear of rejection.I know a letter is the way forward, do I get straight to the point, or, use an intermediatry, or not let on who I am. Advice please. Any ideas or experiences would be welcomed. All searches stop at this lady & address.
