I had been looking for my half brother Gregory Tolman for years, he was born in 1956 in somerset, I put it on this website years ago updated the lot my brother will be 60 this October.
I opened my messenger on July 6 this year and found a message from a woman who said her partner has this name at birth, she was looking for her dad got nowhere so plugged in gregory Tolman and it came up with me, when I text her omg it was my brother, she told me that he was adopted by a local couple and it took months to go through as my mum did not want to have him sat crying as I was reading her text then asked her his birthdate 18th October I knew then he was definitely my brother,
Anyhow they live in Spain and was out that night Michelle and I text a lol night she had not told him then she found me. The next night gregory now roger phoned me hours we talked our mum had passed on a few years ago but roger has two other sisters and another brother our youngest brother passed yearsvago. But we have all talked to roger he is on Facebook with us and our children and we have two neices now and 4 great neices. So through genes reunited iwe have our brother so it paid putting it one here thank for genes reunited for existing xxx
