In November 2020, i was contacted by a DNA match - a second cousin, who put me in contact with my biological family..
At 58yrs old, I thought I would never find them: born in UK to a Sri Lankan mother, she returned there 8 years later.
I am a Psychiatrist, and have never come across a case of reunions before - neither had my colleagues. It is early days, and am still getting used to all the new information.
I have a brother who is a Buddhist monk who grew up with my mother - she suffered with mental health issues up until her death.
I speak to him most days.
What is sad, is that both adoptive parents remained tight-lipped, and hid her whereabouts. More out of malice, than attachment issues.
Anyway here i am.
