Hi, I am trying to find my birth mother who had me in 1968 and was last known in Derby UK in 1968. I have no idea what happened after that!

Sorry, but not a tactful post, to say the least. Consider the lady's feelings, and the trouble you could cause if someone related sees this who didn't previously know about you.

I sincerely hope that you will think better of it

There seems to have been a huge surge in posts asking for help and advice where the OP never comes back.

So sad.
