trying to find Ruby

Joy Report 10 Aug 2010 16:25

My mum & siblings were brought up in anorphanage as their mother left them taking the youngest daughter with her who was at that time a baby, Having got her birth certificate I found out that she had been adopted , it has taken me six years to find out what happened to my Grandmother only to find that she later had another son, who I am now in touch with & was astounded to find out that his mother had five children previously all of whom she put into homes, the baby, Ruby I have found was adopted, married & eventually went to Australia where she sadly died in 1968, but, she had a daughter who I am now in touch with & she lives in New Zealand, it's fantastic to have found her, I now feel that my mission is comlete, I just wish my Mum & her siblings were alive to know all this.
