Adoption,Long Lost Sibling.
« on: Saturday 14 May 22 09:53 BST (UK) »
A friend is asking for advice.She has recently found she was put up adoption at Birth some years ago.Through the advances of DNA research she has found she has a sibling with the same biological parents.Obviously I can't give any names on an open forum but she is after advice in her search for her brother please.

Regards

Do not try and use the internet (Facebook etc)  to try and make contact - she has no idea of the circumstances of the other individual, whether they know about the adoption or if they stayed with the parents.

She should contact an authorised adoption intermediary service and work through them She can also contact the adoption services team at her local council for advice ( and they will have a list of intermediaries).

It would have been an idea to state which Country but I'm guessing it's the UK?

You don't state at what level the DNA connection is, whether with her brother or further back?

Do you know if your friend already has her Adoption Papers?

If the connection is directly with her brother, he may know about her & may be the reason he done the test?

I think age would be a factor & whether the parents are still alive in whether to make contact or wait for her brother to contact her?

This is worth looking at...

Last week's episode of "Life Changing" in which Jane Garvey (former "Woman's Hour" presenter) "talks to a person about an extraordinary turning point in their life" was about a man who learned that he had a sister who was adopted. BBC Radio 4, Wednesday 11th May. Programme should be on BBC Sounds.
