Article on the search for siblings

I've put this on the FLR board also as it might be encouraging to those who have been searching a long time ( I'd be grateful if no one reported either as a duplicate, I felt it would be of interest on both boards). :-)

What an amazing story Rose.

It would be wonderful to think that in time, the eldest sister will have a change of heart.

Perhap's she feels guilty that she wasn't the one to go in search of the siblings she knew she had?

Perhaps a bit of guilt PricklyHolly, or feeling she would have to try and defend her mother's actions without perhaps knowing all the circumstances herself and would feel disloyal? .

Perhaps just like many she feels that 'family' is the people you grow up with or are living with now, whether birth or adopted, and doesn't want to disturb the status quo with the family she already has.
