The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

  September 2015, 54 years gone by, my sisters and I finally got to meet our brother Michael. So much to catch up on.

  Feelings of sadness/happiness all rolled into one.  Barnardos found Michael for us (Thank you so much Andrew).

  Michael  came and stayed in our hometown (cobh) for 9 days.  I am  so happy right now just thought I'd share with      

   you all.

Only Now Seen Your Message Here Rose!  I Hope Everything Has Turned Out Really Well!  I Tried Barnardos And They Were No Help At All (Worse Really). First My Letter To Barnardos Was Returned With Notice Which Said "Unknown Address". The Address Was Very Much Known!  A Solicitor Next Handed My Letter In To Make Sure They Got It! Weeks Later I Received A Response. Sorry Can Not Help As Your Parents Were Not Married At The Time Of Your Birth.
