Anthony (tony) Parry Swansea, UK Apr 19, 2002
I am trying to trace my natural mother who abandoned me in 1969 in Cardiff.
According to the birth certificate given to me by the then South Glamorgan local authority, I was born on March 21st 1969 at St Davids hospital, Cardiff and named Nicolas Morgan Ali. however, according to the Social Services I was in fact registered a few days later as Anthony Martin Ali.
The name of my mother on the birth certificate is Jesse Joyce Ali, born in London, England.
The story I have been told is that my mother and father named as Mojhid Ali, a cafe proprieter from the Butetown area of the City of Cardiff split up before I was born. My mother apparently left me in the care of an elderley gentleman in the first week of my life and never returned, and I was subsequently handed in to the Police and then Social services care at around a week old.
I was put into the care of 4 different families in my first year before being subsequently fostered at a year old by what I know as my family today.
At 18 years of age I officially changed my name by deed poll to Anthony Martin Parry (known as Tony Parry) and I now live in Swansea.
I would like to fill in the missing parts of my life and learn if I have any natural brothers or sisters as I am and have for some years been estranged from my foster family.
I have never been happy with the lack of knowledge the Old Social Services Department seemed to have about my first year of life and the contradictions in the story they told me about my natural parents and it seems only fair to learn the truth about my real family and the circumstances of my start in life.
It is not that I want to intrude on my natural parents life now, but I do want to know who I really am and what the circumstances of my abandonment were no matter how painful or horrible they might be.
I have my own family now, a beautiful wife,and 3 great kids, and I did not turn out to be a mass murderer or arch criminal, so I am not looking for someone to blame for any failures in my life. I just want to know the truth.
I would be grateful for any information, advice or help anyone would be willing to give.
Many Thanks.
