Looking for my birthbrother Peter Brewer born Oct.21/53 in
Blackburn, Lancs. Just recently found out that his adoption
was 'legalized' on April 5, 1954 in Liverpool, England.
I am an adoptee myself and live in Canada. I have found our
birthmother and 6 siblings. Our birthmother had 8 children and gave
6 of us up for adoption at birth. Peter is the only one of us born
in England that I am aware of. It is possible that there are more
of us. Our birthmother was not very open regarding that fact that
we all existed and I had to find out about and locate all of the
others on my own. Our bmother passed away in Feb./01 and so the
rest of her secrets went with her.
I have had wonderful support from members of the UK
adoptee/birthparent community. I know that some day I will find
Peter too. :o)
I have one of my birthcousins checking a few things out for me in
the Liverpool area. I asked her to check out the newspapers around
the time of Peter's 18th, 21st and 40th birthday, to see if there
are any notices.
Of course in this day and age of having to move to where you can
find employment, Peter could be anywhere in the country or in the
world for that matter.
It is my hope that he may want to find his birthfamily and be
looking too some day.
Best of luck to all of you searching.
