||The day and month are wrong, but year of birth is right. i\\\'m looking for my fathers birth mother, named kathleen clarke, was 21 when she gave him up at Sorrento maternity hospital in 1974. The adoption forms describe her as 5\\\'\\\'8ft, blue eyes, rosy complexion, well built, came from a large family, went to a secondary modern, then onto factory work, and enjoyed music and dancing. My father\\\'s father was named James was given no surname, was 6\\\'\\\'ft, well built, blue eyes, was a bar man and bailiff. The reason for adoption was that 'Kathleen knew the importance of having family around and realised she did not love James'. So i assume they did not stay together.
