LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
HELP TO FIND GRADMOTHERS PARENTS
I wonder if any of your readers can help?
My 68 year-old grandmother was adopted when she was a baby. She was brought over to England from Cork and given to a family in Southport.
All her life she has kept quiet her true feelings. She has hardly mentioned the adoption or its effect on her life, instead she has devoted herself to fostering dozens of children since she left her adopted home.
Now, as she reaches her later years, she has come out about the fact that she would dearly love to find out about her parents, and would particularly like to discover if she has any brothers or sisters. It seems that since retiring from fostering only a few years ago, the unanswered questions about her own life have emotionally come to the fore.
As her grandson I would love to unite her with her natural family. All I have is a birth certificate to go on. It says that her father was Edward Hayes, a commercial traveller of Knockrea Gardens, Cork, and her mother was Eileen Hayes (formerly Bolton). She was born in October 1931. I also have a letter from her father to her adopted parents sent from Douglas.
If you and your readers can help in any way I would be very grateful.

This is just a letter to thank you and to keep you up to date on the subject of Chorus and me. They have honoured their contract with me, since you published my letter in the Douglas Weekly. The Douglas Weekly gets the message across.
