Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
What enquiries did you make when you left care?
Have you asked to see your file?
When did you get them and what justification was given for the Redaction?
Was there any evidence that anyone had been told that you were adopted?
I am so very sorry but unless it is clear from the file that this is what they were told then there is no action that you can take.
Thirty years ago it was not routine to share information with Children leaving care so the fact that you were not given any information was normal for the time (whatever my personal views might be on that)
If there is independent evidence that an enquiry was made and incorrect information given out then it is just a matter of their word and sadly in these circumstances that will not suffice
It is a wonderful thing that your brother has found you but saldy there is no action you can take regarding the failings of the past
Please ask if I can help in any other way
I wish I could have done more
I am sorry to have to ask but could you please rate my answer as without a positive rating I do not get paid for my time
