Dear Joan, (dated Thursday, January 24, 2002)
I can't thank you enough for finding my birth family. I'm still in shock. When my Nan phoned me I thought I was going to faint at first. I am over the moon, it was sad to hear that my natural mother died though. It would have been nice to see her and get to know her. Hopefully I should be going to see my Nan soon, can't wait!!!
Thankyou again

Roma TALBOT
Syed Z AHMED
Adoptee Joy, now living in Canada, asked me to search for her mother first. The only information she had was that Roma came from a good Lancashire family so had nowhere to start really. I did search for the birth of Roma and her brother and sister and found nothing at all so still had no leads. Once she had her birth certificate on early May Bank Holiday 2001 weekend I really got stuck in. I traced her mum that day and then wrote to her. Roma rang me in tears she was so happy. Roma came to the UK in July to meet her family. A couple of weeks later she emailed me and asked me to find her dad - I did that within the hour and spoke to him too. They will be meeting very soon.

Kimberley Rose OAKLEY (maiden name)
Olivia (adoptee) wanted to find her natural family. I was very cautious about helping as she was only 18 and I hadn't dealt with anyone of such a tender age that was searching. Dave her husband was totally supportive of her search and was there every step of the way. I made contact first with Kimberley's mother as Kim would only be 34 years old and could still be footloose and fancy free. Mrs Oakley was great about it and helped bridge the gap. Kim married the year after Olivia was born and had twins (boy and girl) and 2 other girls. Olivia met her mum and grandmother 2 days later. Kim told of her natural father and that he has a son too. Everything turned out wonderful for all concerned.

Mary Margaret Watson (birthmother)
Thomas William Pierrepont (birthfather)
Mother and father married each other in the December quarter 1964
I was born on 9th June 1964 at Lewisham Hospital. I was called Tina Maria Watson by my birth mother, and put up for adoption via the Phylis Holman Richards Adoption Society who were in West Hill, London. I believe my mother stayed at West Hill whilst pregnant and for a short time after my birth. My mother's name was Margaret Watson, although on my birth certificate she appears as Mary Margaret Watson. She was 18 at the time of my birth, although I do not have a dob for her. My father's name was William Pierrepont, although again on my birth certificate he is shown as Thomas William Pierrepont. He was 17 at the time of my birth. He was a plumber by trade. My mother's address was Tooting - I believe this was a home/hostel and is no longer in existence. Apparently, unusually, my father had lodged a note with Chertsey Court, where my adoption was processed, naming himself as my father.

My adoptive mother, who unfortunately died in 1985, did tell me that she thought my birth mother's origins were from Ireland. She was brought up by an aunt and uncle for a while as her own parents were killed in wartime when she was 5 years old, together with a brother. This, however, did not work out and she spent most of her childhood in The Catholic Children's Society home in London. I have not been able to trace any records from her childhood, other than the address of the home she was at when she had me.

Shaun Patrick PLUNKETT (birthname)
Farida, natural mother to Shaun, contacted me after hearing me on BBC Radio Bristol in March. She asked me for help in tracing her son who was adopted at around one year old. I told her I didn't do adoptee searches. Farida had a court that the adoption went through and an area she believed he was now living. I had my first attempt at seeing if I could do anything with the information I had. I checked the electoral roll for the area he probably still lived the year he became 18 in the hope I could match a date of birth. I managed to find a match and the first and middle names were the same as I expected. Now I was torn as to who to approach, the adoptee of the adoptive parents. What if the adoptee was not aware of being adopted I though then decided I should contact the adoptive parents - I didn't want to cause any friction within the adoptive family. His adoptive mother was very questioning about "why now" and I said she had always been looking but had never had the means to be able to search until now. At this stage the adoptee didn't want contact but Farida is happy to know all about him from the information from his adoptive mum. He is alive, well and happy and that will do for the time being for Farida. One day he may change his mind and he knows where I am if he does.

Jessica Kay NEIL now STILES
Full birth sister, Amanda, seeking Jessica on behalf of Mum, Dad, 2 brothers and another sister. The best part of this search was that they knew who had adopted Jessica and had a last address for Jessica when she was 15. I could find no trace of the adoptive mum and Jessica living with the adoptive dad. I tried ringing the dad but it was a fax. I eventually faxed him asking if he knew where Jessica was. He rang me half an hour later to say she was with her mother in Australia. I then set about the task of getting a phone number - I rang and rang until I eventually got to her. She will be coming to the UK for her sister's 21st in 2002.

Evelyn Maud JONES (nee Britton)
Adoptee Margaret (previously Patricia Watson) asked me to carry out a search for her natural mother Evelyn. Because it was a Bristol based search I put a message in my column. Evelyn's sister contacted me to let me know that she had died 5 years ago. I asked if she wanted to know who the searcher was and when I told her it was Evelyn's daughter she was so pleased. Evelyn had been searching for Patricia (Margaret) and had never stopped loving and talking about her. I spoke to Margaret and told her that her mother was one of 11 children and also that she had 8 brothers and sisters. She was totally amazed and overwhelmed - she had gone from her little family - husband and 2 daughters, one cousin and suddenly had this massive new family in front of her.

Dear Joan,
Just to thankyou for your help and understanding in tracing my birth mother.you were very kind and reassuring which i am sure is what makes you so successful in what you do. I am still unsure as what to do next. I had wondered whether to send a final letter back assuring her that i would respect her wishes in not contacting her again but i dont want to cause any upset. I shall be in touch but in the meantime i hope you keep well and carry on with the good work.
Kind regards

John and Clinton had been adopted by their paternal grandparents and were believed to be in Aberdeen. Their younger half-sister Louise (that they were not aware of) was looking for them. I made contact with Clinton first via his Gran. He was well chuffed and spoke to his sister and mum within days. As a result of theior reunion I have reunited Louise's aunt with her parents, Clinton's partner with her parents, hot on the trail of Uncle Hughie's estranged children and supporting Clint's friend John in his search for his siblings. Clint calls me Big Mum and John calls me Mum - it is a lovely feeling to have an extended 'family' that look upon me as part of their family.

Grace SULLIVAN (birthmother)
They say you should not suffer through the past. You should be able to wear it like a loose garment, take it off and let it drop. Our sincere thanks go out to Joan Allan, if not for her my husband, Christopher John would be still suffering the past. A very special THANK YOU goes out to Karen Dawson from Winnipeg, MB, Canada. If not for her we would never of known there was a very kind, caring individual out there that was so willing to give so much of themselves to help others. It took all of ten (10) days for Joan Allan to locate my husband's birth mother and family. We placed a message on a website, a message that was read by Karen Dawson in Winnipeg, MB who out of the kindness of her heart made the decision to e-mail us to offer her assistance in our search. It was Karen Dawson who made us aware of Joan Allan. An exchange of e-mails and then on Saturday, October 28, 2000 we received a call from Karen Dawson advising us that Joan Allan was trying to contact us. My husband's birth family was found!! Through out the whole process Joan Allan kept us up to date every step of the way. Individuals such as Joan Allan and Karen Dawson  come along few and far between. During the whole process both Joan Allan and Karen Dawson made themselves available, no matter the time to help us through the ups and downs that is experienced going through the search of finding someone's birth mother and family. Never taking sides, both Joan and Karen were able to help all parties concerned in dealing with the many different emotions that were felt during the whole process. What is so very special about both Joan and Karen is their heart is in the right place and they do what they do for all the right reasons. They both have a caring heart and concern for others. Joan truly understands the importance of ensuring all parties involved are receiving all the emotional support during the whole process. Christopher John and I were especially blessed as we also had Karen Dawson available to assist us whenever our emotions were in turmoil, and given the time difference this was extremely appreciated. It was my intention to hopefully locate my husband's birth mother and family as a Christmas present to my husband. At same time I thought there was no chance of that happening since deep down I thought there is no way they could be found this fast. Then came the call, I was in total shock since I never expected it to happen for Christmas let alone before Christmas and within a ten (10) day period. Since that call on Saturday, October 28, 2000 there has been an exchange of telephone calls, letters and pictures in the process of being exchanged, and a trip over to England in September, 2001. Within this short period of time I have seen a tremendous change in my husband. Our friends have even noticed that he is finally smiling. Something they haven't seen him do until now. Joan Allan has excellent human relations, inter-personal and counseling skills that has played a major role in her being so successful in her searches and putting families together after years of separation. My husband is 49 years old and for the first time in his life he has someone he could call his mother, brother, sister and step-father. It doesn't take long to realize that individuals such as Joan Allan and Karen Dawson are not doing this to put themselves in the lime light but do it because they truly believe in the importance of knowing one's roots. AMAZING is a word I used to discribe Joan Allan and her reponse was that "she was just a house wife". I would like it known that Joan Allan is far more than just a housewife, she's a guardian angel who thinks of others before she thinks of herself. In closing, I would like to express our deepest thanks and appreciation, if not for her we would of never located my husband's birth mother and family. At the same time special thanks need to be said for Karen Dawson who is so willingly extended herself and made contact with us to offer her assistance. Having gone through the search process herself she was willing to assist a stranger who was going through the same process. THANK YOU THANK YOU. Joan Allan, we can't wait for September to arrive and we are able to finally meet you in person also. To Karen Dawson I would like to say let's get together over a cup of coffee. SUCCESS comes when you do what you are doing for all the right reasons. Joan Allan, who has been most successful has proven this over and over, there is no doubt in my mind that she will continue to be most successful.
Love Maggie & Christopher

Rita Elizabeth EVANS
Jonathan the adoptee and his daughter Jenni were looking for Rita, Jonathan's mother. Jonathan and Jenni (in New Zealand) sent me all the possible marriages for Rita but somehow I didn't have the feel for any of them. Something told me ot to do anything for a while. Eventually I knew I should write to all of the names on the list and half way through the first letter my brain pinged. I rang Ealing Records Office and ask for a checkon the electoral roll archives for the address on his birth certificate for the year Jonathan was born. I had six family names to work on. I located a possible male family member from my disc and rang. It was Rita's brother. I was given Rita's telephone number and rang her immediately. She was dumbstruck but overjoyed. She had never married but had changed her name and had not had any further children. Jonathan, Jenni and Rita spoke within 2 hours of my phone call. To this day I don't know why I took the path of checking the electoral roll but I now know I would never have found her if I had sent the letters.

On the 26 September, after having no success in finding my birthparents on my own I decided to contact the professionals, Joan Allan. Joan phoned me a couple of days later and told me that my b/mother had got re-married twice, and that she was searching for her latest name. On the 17 October, Joan phoned me again with the good news that she had found my b/mother and that she wanted to meet me.

An additional surprise was that I had 5 sisters and one brother! (What a shock!). I never even thought that I might have other siblings, and I wasn't the only one adopted out, there was one other who still hasn't been found, but Joan is sorting that one out for my b/mother. I phoned my b/mother on the 24 October and we talked for hours. I even spoke to one of my younger sisters, and another sister (who is dying to speak to me) is going to phone me later. Many thanks to Joan; I couldn't have done it without you! Anna.

Jason (born Jason Mark Crosby) Haden decided he would try to find his natural parents. He found Eddie, his father, first who gave him the background information about Carol, paid for him to go on the contact registers and then put Jason in touch with me. I found a marriage for Carol but she didn't appear to still be with her husband. I got in touch with a gentleman I believed to be the husband and was correct. He informed me that Carol had died in 1998 from liver failure. He agreed to talk to Jason about Carol too. It transpired that Carol was grieving all her days for the son she gave up and had drowned her sorrows in drink, hence the liver failure. He is in touch with his mother's family and they have provided him with photographs and memories. Poor Jason, he must be thinking he could have saved her if he had started the search earlier. My heart goes out to him.

A big thank you to Joan Allan for finding my birth father. When I first contacted Joan, I expected it to take years to find him as he has a fairly common name. But much to my amazement, she found him on the second phone call and within 2 weeks!! And now I've discovered I have 2 half brothers too. I spoke to my father, his wife and one of my brothers yesterday for the first time. I still can't believe how easily Joan made contact with them.

Angela RIMMINGTON
Michael (adopted name) from Denmark was searching for his natural mother Angela. I traced her via her brother by using the "I am doing a family tree" introduction. Contact was made with Angela and we agreed a day and time that I would download to her all the correspondence between myself and Michael and the photos I had asked him to send in readiness of me getting in touch with her. Angela's brother had already told me she was on the internet. What Angela couldn't understand was the lack of emotion in his voice but he had become a true Dane after living there so long and had lost the intonation in his speech. He made up for that in his writing to her. Michael was overwhelmed to find he had a brother and a sister - he had always wanted brothers or sisters.

From Michael 25 August 2000
Dear Joan
I really hope you are well, and I think you are proberbly, connecting other people round the world. I must say that you have had a huge impact on my life, and I mean that in a possitive way. From the first day you emailed me, everything wen't very fast. I have had my ups and downs, because it was quite big emotions we got started doing this. I am now avery happy man, who are getting to know my UK roots.

I didn't in my wildest imagination think that my mother would be such a nice persion. She is such a lovely person to speak and write letters with. We have contact nearly every day. She is always in my thoughts. I have at this moment, found out what a huge impact DNA have on people. I look like her, and I think our minds are quite similar.

I can't tell you enough how happy I am about your work. You are truly the greatest!

Thanks Joan

Thank you Lookupuk, Family Circle and thank you most of all Joan (Allan). A week ago all I had were 5 names which I believed belonged to my birth mother and her family and no real idea how to find them. Last Saturday I was sent an email by Joan offering help and I eventually managed to avoid the constant busy tone on her phoneline on Sunday afternoon and by Monday night Joan had managed to find Myra my birth mother and I had found a whole family. By Wednesday morning I had Joan telling me that Myra did want to meet me, and now I have had two phone conversations with Myra and we will meet for the first time on Monday. I may have found Myra eventually on my own, but Joan made it happen NOW. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Lynne Norma BROWNE (birthmum)
Catherine (previously Ginette) was searching for her mother and father. We went all around the houses but got there in the end. At one stage I told Catherine I wasn't going to look in England for her mum - I don't even know why I said it but for some reason thought of Canada. Catherine had managed to trace a last address for her grandparents and upon speaking with the current owners was only told that they had gone to the Welsh Borders. I looked at all the Peter Browne's in the UK and picked on an address in Wrexham. When Catherine received Peter's death certificate she rang me up and called me a witch. The address was the one I had said - spooky or what!! The person who registered the death was another relative - Lynne's sister. I rang her and asked if she knew where Lynne was and she said she would contact her later in the day because of time difference. When Catherine contacted her aunt she was told she was in Canada - where I had predicted!! Don't ask me to explain it because I can't.
