A Public Appeal To Reunite A Son With His Biological Mother

Written 2 months ago by Angel Croitor


Aoife Glavin, a mother of five and wife to Yam, reached out to Midlands 103 to tell us a story of one man and his search for his biological mother.

Yam was born on the outskirts of County Dublin in a mother and baby home. His mother was living in the capital with himself at the time in 1978. He was born on April 30th and was adopted by a family in Dublin eight months later.

“Through the workers they exchanged two letters and they spoke on the phone once – it was all very positive, when he talked to me about it he was just so young and he didn’t know who he was so he just threw himself into his work.”

Now – 41 years later – he wants to reunite with his mother for good.

His mother was 22 years old at the time and has three sisters and one brother. A few of her passions would be singing, dancing, and crosswords.

When Yam was 18 years old he made contact with his mother but says that he felt he wasn’t mature enough to deal with the situation. They never met after that and the number he was given for her is no longer in service.

What the family do know is that she is open to contact due to a letter exchanged when he was 18.

His wife, Aoife, is urging the public to reach out if they know anything at all or even if you are his mother – to simply get in contact with Midlands 103 and we will pass on the details.
