I would like to say a big thank you to all the people helped me find a cousin, who was adopted in 1960, at six weeks old.
Some may have seen us on TV news on Monday the 15th December 2014 at our reunion in Burham -on - Sea,
It was lovely to meet Elaine Wright ( Angela Lillian Pitcher ) after 54 years.
Elaine came all the way from Southport where she lives with her family.
We have know about her since April this year when I found her on Facebook after doing all the research on Genes Reunited.
Elaine contacted me three weeks before as her laptop had not been working and had only just received my message.
We were all so happy that we have at last found our family member.
Once again it a big Thank You to all the viewers that helped us find each other.
