Have you been a GR member for long. Ive been on since August but only started reading the gen and chat boards recently (when I got my own laptop). Feel a bit strange reading other peoples conversations and not showing myself but never know how to start.

Im glad you found your aunt and sorry about your mum. My mum hasnt spoken to her brother for about 18 years since my wedding, ive thought about trying to reunite them but its a sore subject and i think a lot of stuff went on that i dont know about. My mum is a lovely caring woman and i dont want to hurt her i just think its so sad. He is her only sibling.
