i had a phone call today from my cousin steven i had wrote him a letter on thursday thinking to myself he would not reply to me.but he did we had a long chat on the phone it was lucky he contacted me as he is moving in a few days time. i was crying with shock but ok now we will be meeting soon after he has moved house in about 2 weeks we have a lot to talk about he will meet my husband and our two kids i said to him you have a new familynow i have family photos to show him when we meet.he remembers me when i was born and that was a long time ago and that he knew about my dad passing away so now we are going to keep in touch we seem close even when we spoke on the phone so thanks to genes reunited this has happened so if anyone needs to find that long lost relation there is hope out there from Linda
