Wow, that's great!!!
I didn't meet (or even know about) my half-brother and 3 half-sisters until I was 16.

How lovely to hear something so positive after such a sad Between Ourselves on R4 yesterday morning. All best wishes for a good reunion.

nice to hear good news for you indiasmum.

My friedn who is adopted has no interest in tracing his birth mother but is desparately curious about his birth brother whom she kept. Tracing one would therefore mean in effect tracing both so he hasn't decided what to do yet. I hope your eventual meeting goes really well

sorry that should say my friedn who was adopted
