Adopted - Found Birth family

I was adopted but not till after I had been with my mother till I was 3. I applied for my birth record from Social services which gave me my mother's and grandparents details. From that I started to create a family tree. Have added as much as I can. I have since found and spoken to my birth mother (This week). I have found out I have three sisters and have just met my Uncle and Aunt. My Uncle used to look after me when I was little so it was really good to see him as he had been lookimg for me and my mum so we are all reunited Amazing xxx we had a great weekend. I have found out I have such a large family now. For those of u in similar situations looking for birth relatives don't give up hope you will get there and good luck. Without this site I would not have the family I have now. Thank you Genes reunited! ! <3
