Got my letter this morning from Scotland.
I now have quite a lot of details about my birth mother and her family, It would seem I have a half brother born 5 years after me.
The letter included all sorts of documents including birth certificates of other relatives, marriage certificates, death information etc.
There is no information regarding my birth father.
The latest info they have on my birth mother is from 2010 and no record in Scotland of death or a remarriage so that would suggest she is still alive.
The searching agency has recommended I don’t attempt to make any contact until after Christmas as this can already be an emotional time of year for people, and there is no way of knowing if me contacting would open a big can of worms as family members may not even know of my existence.
Anyway all the searching is done.
Hopefully I’ll be off to Scotland sometime to actually meet these people but my birth mother also has the right to refuse contact. So This may be the end of the journey…who knows.
