You started this thread saying your mum and her sister wanted some answers. I assume to try to understand why they were adopted, was it a legal adoption? If so, has your mother applied for her adoption records?

If she hasn't already got it, she can apply for free the application form is available on this link - application for birth records:

What the files hold can vary, but there is usually some background information as to why the child was adopted etc. They arrange to retrieve the file and your mother would need to attend an interview (formality, nothing to worry about) which would be arranged near to where she now lives.
