Rose was able to trace back her birth information to 1945 after years of living in the USA

An adopted adult who was born in 1945 (now aged 78 years old) and adopted through our agency in Leeds contacted our agency earlier this year for access to her birth records.

She moved from England to the USA when she was 25 years old, her adoptive parents remained in England. She was visiting England in May 2023 to visit her Aunt, and wanted access to her birth records. She had previously met her birth mother, who at the time said she suffered memory loss and was not able to provide her with the information she needed regarding the circumstances around her adoption.

On her visit to England we provided her with all her birth information and she thanked the agency in her words “Thank you for filling the gaps in my life I can now really feel at peace with my adoption”.
