A new kid in town

This happened today

I met my eldest half sister Wong Yin Ling, or Daisy. Huge hugs and lots of tears.

I woke up related by blood to 3 people, Tom and Lucy and Phoebe, and I ended the day with 2 photo albums full of half siblings, nieces and nephews and the children of my nephews, whatever they would be called (cousins to Phoebe???). I don’t think that’s right, but it will do for now.

So I have five half siblings.

A big brother, two big sisters and a little sister. And a big brother who was given away, who the Red Cross are now going to try and trace.

My Mother was born in 1919, and had 8 children, I was number 7. The first two died in infancy.

Before I came, I thought I was the forth child of four.

And this just on my Mother’s side.

And I saw pictures of my Mother for the first time ever. Here she is

Possibly aged 45

My Mother had a very hard life. But she died aged 78, loved by many friends and her children and grandchildren. Her life did get better after my adoption and four of her children are very close. I meet with more tomorrow for a celebration dinner. Here are my four half siblings

Looking for my long lost family in Hong Kong And previously.... Fell in love with coastal living 5 years ago. And moved to stunning St Ives. A place to create and grow and flourish. Got me a home and a job. And never looked back. Everyone talks and writes about the famous dead people of St Ives. Virginia and Alfred and Ben and Barbara and Peter and Wilhelmina. Well I thought I’d introduce you to some very nice folk, and they’re all very much alive and make St Ives a much the better town for it.
