We were 5 and 9 when the CAS took us into custody, we were not at fault but we paid the price of seperation for over 35 years. The CAS was not at all helpfull in the reunion and I think they should have been. I am now continuing my search for the rest of my siblings and hope someday to at least find a few.
If I may make a suggestion: If you decide to adopt and adopt an older child and if that older child has siblings I beseach you to allow contact if at all possible.

I agree with our letter as well. I was adopted through Halton region CAS. Luckily for me though, My (half)sister and I had to be adopted by the same family. That was the one strict condition placed on the adoption. as it is, I am having a very hard time finding any information about my adoption, that it would have been worse if we had been separated. I beg you, if you consider adopting a child with another sibling, PLEASE look into your heart, and let them stay together. The transition for them may be easier. I know it was for my sister and I.

She would have been around 6 years of age when she was permently a ward of CAS.Her birth mother was Helen Fowler. I believe she was born at an unwed mothers home called Bethesta(I don't think it exists now.) My mother Anna Gertrude Boyle(married name at the time,was the one who signed the papers for CAS. Helen Fowler was mentally unfit at this time. This all took place in the 50's. I wouls kindly appreciate any info that can be found
