  • This is a photograph of my mother with my younger brother and sister,taken in 1940.Why am I missing?
    I am missing because I was born before marriage and in 1933 that was a disgrace and I had to be put out of sight.My coming into the world created problems,my mother was the breadwinner of a family of seven,so my coming could not be allowed to interfere with this.
    The result,I was put into a foundling institution,where I was cared for and had a very good education before being let loose into the world
    It is now 78+years and I have found my family,they have opened their arms to receive me.
    One day this will become more than just a lost family but a story of true love from a "love" baby
