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

Wow that's amazing

So pleased for you.

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

Kewcumber · 18/07/2007 20:14

sorry that should say my friedn who was adopted
