Adopted son found after 60 years!!

Thanks to Genes Reunited I have finally after over 40 years of searching found our half brother 60 years after he had been reluctantly adopted. Our mother is still alive and so ecstatically happy to be reunited with her son. Many times I wondered if Mum would ever see him again as she's in her 80's but thankfully she has.
I have just published a book about this incredible and very painful story and I hope it will help others feel motivated to keep on trying, never give up looking!
We can't thank you enough Genes Reunited, xxxx <3 :-D Annie x
