I've been to sleep for a few hours and there are more posts, thanks you all so much, especially PB, Sandra, bbart, RK and anyone else I missed (sounds like an award speech), seriously though the effort is very much appreciated. Just need to work out my next steps regarding current family, and the Holy grail of actually speaking to a current Wilding. Richard
