I joined Genes reunited on behalf of my mum a couple of years ago to search for her Dad
We never used it until this year. The same night that I posted a message on here I got so many helpful messages which seemed too good to be true!

We found out the names of possible half brothers to my mum and eventually realised it had to be the right family. We messaged over facebook but didnt get a reply for about 6 weeks or more and it turns out we had the right family and my Mum has just found out tonight off her half brother that her Dad is still alive and cant wait to contact her!

Thank you to everyone that helped :-)
