hi i have three siblings that i am trying to find unfortunatly its complicated as they were all adopted out as small children if not babies.

i have the names but not sure if there surnames have been changed but have dates of birth and adoption dates.
I just dont know how to find them of course ive used every web site i could and paid fees etc but just have no joy ive contacted social services who helped arrange there adoptions but they do not hold any details other than what they have given me, i was told to contact the adoption agencey but they wanted money for my name to sit on a list for years on end nothing again im really stuck now and its getting up setting for both me and my wife as ive recently married i have children .
Its just so sad that its made so difficult for every one all roud no matter what situation your in adoption is so difficult :-(
