Thank you to ALL of those who helped me in my search for my mother's birth mother - unfortunately Violet died at the age of 40 but my Mum can celebrate her 60th birthday without that missing jigsaw piece of her life - we have now made contact with her brother and sister and looking forward to getting to know them. :-D
