Adopted Aunt

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


rolypoly Report 31 Aug 2017 11:41

I have been researching my wifes auntie for years on other sites but with no success. Her aunt was adopted at an early age and had lost touch with her family network. My wife is 47 and she had little knowledge of her aunt and had never met her.
After sending a message to who I thought maybe her aunts husband, I hit the jackpot, we are now in contact and have shared stories,memories and photos. My wife and sister in law have two cousins who have their own family , although we haven't met as yet it's great to be in touch. We are also in contact with other family members thanks to genes reunited.

Thanks from a very happy family. :-) <3
