Long Lost Family Comments

laughable!
Davina mccall disowned her own mother, so to try and reunite others is hypocritical!

I love this show! I had a son @19 and my parents had me put him up for adoption. I reunited with him when he was 25. Please keep making these shows. Give people hope. Outstanding are the two who do the searching.

Long lost family
Real life drama about real people. Totally adore this programme! It seems to be well researched and the guests prepared for however their reality will change. It also gives an amazing insight into the reasons for people's decisions and the importance of life.

Happy reunion
As a result of watching long lost family's I decided to trace my birth mother, the whole process took less than a year. We met two years ago after 46 years apart and it's one of the best things that ever happened to me, I would encourage anyone considering to search to go for it .

Hi looked at the programme last night brilliant.
As we are trying as well to find my partners mother Carol Ann Fleet it will be amazing for Paul to find his biological mother the sadness in his face and eyes says it all his birthday Mother's Day and Christmas times is the most upsetting.I hope one day he can get united with his mother it will bring peace and closure for him he is lost his dad died in Nigera a fees years ago never had the opportunity to find out about his mum every time he asked his dad and step mum he was shouted down..Love the programme every Wednesday I cry my eyes out seeing people re united with their family.Thanks Nick and Devina love the show.

That's a lesson for all of us who do not keep in touch with those we were brought up with, me included. Best wishes to you and your siblings.

My happy ending
I found a paternal half-sister when I was 44 and my two maternal half-brothers when I was 50. The younger brother was kept and raised by our mother. The older brother and I were surrendered for adoption to different families. The love my older brother and I share was instantaneous from our first hug. We have an enormously strong bond that is unlike anything we had known before. Twelve years later we love each other even more; we are each other's best friend.

Aug 25th Programme "mystery"
Programme 25th August. Mother looking for daughter given away at 6 weeks. The Photo she carried of the baby was certainly not a 6 week old baby. More like 6 months, yet no contact was made after the 6 weeks give away. Could you please explain. Many thanks.

My lost Dad
Love the programme! I was born and my mum never knew she was pregnant she married the man I know as dad when I was 4 I'm not interested in rocking the boat so to speak but I am curious to who my natural father is unfortunately it's a secret my mum took to the grave so have no idea where to start!

Doesn't always work out
I watch the programme but it doesn't always work out. There are some interesting things that can happen as a result of tracing that perhaps are not discussed. I did it but due to differing expectations namely my birth mother feeling entitled to a relationship with me and and not in the least bit humble or able to let me set the pace. She also seemed to think I owed her gratitude for bearing me and not aborting me. ..unreal.

real life
luv the programme but think it unfair to show all the nice side of adoption , I contacted my birth mum and family and have been told to get lost , lets show the other side make it more real and not give everyone the idea that it all works out ok

Reality
Good program, but not at all realistic. We all like happy endings, but that is not real life. How about showing episodes where the birth mother doesn't want to get involved. Oh I forgot that doesn't make good viewing does it. I am a adoptee who traced my birth mother purely out of curiosity. She was OK, but not all the hearts and roses that the program portrays. Get real.

This is a fantastic program I was adopted and spent 27 years searching for my birth mum but sadly she did nit want to know me so it s lovely to see the reunions take place and all the better as Nicky Campbell was adopted him self.

Certificate
Can you tell me how they managed to produce a short birth cert with her fathers name on when he wasn't present. I heard them say she was christened in his name but then showed a birth cert with her fathers name on. I feel sure that he as to be present at registration for that to be possible

Relevant to people who went through it!
Hope x3. The programme isn't about today's adoptions. That's the whole point!!!

Found
I was adopted at 11mnths so I know my mum tried to keep me. I found her and my dad at the age of 30 but it wasn't a loving experience as on the show. I did not keep in touch with them as they were like strangers. Still like to see the ones on your show but as many have said it would be good to see follow ups and how they got on with time.

not always a happy ever after ending
I have watched this programme since it started and it is nice to see families being reunited and happy but not all cases are like this, I know from past experience. therefore I think that there should be a few episodes where it isn't a happy ending and if not this then going back to the families that have been reunited a year later if thing didn't turn out good in the end. I think this should be done because it would show reality and wouldn't give people especially young people the wrong impression of if I find my dad/mum/sister/brother or who ever then everything will be fine afterwards and it will be a big happy family as this isn't always the case.

sad endings
I can guarantee that my horror story of searching would make a programme all of it's own. Reunited as an adoptee at 17 followed by further deceit at 40 years old. Far too biased towards fantasy island

Episodes 6 and 7
When is the cancelled episode 6 going to be shown and in episode 7 did Sharon meet her second brother

Reunited
My son found me after 37 years, we only lived 5 miles apart!!! We have ups and downs. It as been difficult at times because after tracing his father, whom didn't want to know him. I think this programme should do another series to catch up with the people who have been reunited to see if the relationships have been a success.

Unlikely that you are one of a twin born in Hampstead. Love the prog but becoming a little repetitive

Unconvinced
The woman who walked out and left her child with the man she said abused her - sorry I don't buy it!
avid quizzer 10:06am Wed 17 Jul
 
   
Not so happy endings.
I agree with Dippi above, search and reunion doesn't always have a happy ending. The honeymoon period after reunion can be amazing but doesn't always work out long-term. The programme is a little biased towards the fantasy and not always the reality.

TV advert
We do feel that you giveto much away on your tv advert! More mistery would be better to make you watch the program.
