Found My birth family

A very big thank you to everyone, who have enabled me to locate my birth family, purely by accident, I was on here looking for a friend of my mothers, when I came across a message from a lady looking for her half sister, ME..!!!!... after some trepidation, I replied to the message left by her, and within weeks had spoken to, and met my birth mother and my half sister, and also found out I had a half brother too, who I have yet to meet. A complete and wonderful surprise..!!!

thank you. :-D
