I didn't know my birth family growing up, I was adopted just after my first birthday so I had no memory of them but I got in contact with my birth mum 8 years ago. I'm not sure if this will be useful or interesting to others but I thought I would give it a go

I hope it worked out for you and you got the answers to the questions you must have had for your birth mother.

Are you cross with them?

How long did it take you to work up the courage to first make contact? Did you have counselling before you reached out? How did your parents feel about you being in touch with your birth mother?

Can I please ask what is the reason given for the adoption having taken place, and do you have any new siblings and did they know about you?
