Paul was born to Kathy in Chelsea in April, 1964.He was adopted,much against our wishes,and because we were so young we weren't allowed a voice.You were adopted by a couple in Surrey,it's believed.We have tried to find you but were informed that they won't permit it,but that you are doing well.Fingers crossed that you somehow see this,as there's an ache deep inside your other family.

Barbara, have you put your details on the National Adoption Register? If he goes looking for you he may well register on there.
If you haven't already, contact NORCAP for advice (just google).
It might be possible to put your contact details on his adoption file for him should he access it - check with the agency involved in the adoption.
Good luck with your search.

Welcome to the boards Barbara

It is unlikely Paul will see this, have you looked to see if he has a tree on here in his birth name and have you added your name to the adoption contact register incase he is also looking for you?
