Board Name: England (Adoption Related)
Victoria Ann Margaret Robinson Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada Feb 11, 2006
Hello, Just discovered this website and was overwhelmed to read of so many people searching for family members. Each search touches your heart. I would like to add my details, even at my age, I have so missed not knowing my birth Mother or Father. I was adopted at age 2 years from an orphanage in Wigan, England. My name then was Victoria Ann Phoebe...My adoptive parents, Margaret and John Connolly changed my name to Victoria Ann Margaret Connolly. I discovered at age 16 my adoption papers. It is the only old and fragile worn out sheet of paper I have stating my birth Mother's name as Marceline Antonio Murphy Maguire. Was born either in Blackburn or Birmingham. A Sunday school teacher named Phoebe, who was in the WRENS and home on leave, was chosen as my Godmother. There may have been a Brother named Christopher who was two years older than I. Charles Percival Gihon might have been my Father? I, like so many of you may never ever have the chance of meeting our birth parents. I do know that I would have made a wonderful daughter, I would have spoiled my Mother and showered her with flowers for Mother's Day, and would have welcomed any opportunity to honour her as my Mother. To the Father I have never met, I would have so enjoyed being the Daughter you boasted about to your friends. I would have made you both proud. I suspect I will never meet you. My best wishes to all of the people that I have just read your sincere search requests. I wish you success in your journey. Victoria Robinson, Canada.
