Here's what people are saying about Oz Reunion.

Brilliant result

After several years of trying to find info of an old school friends where abouts i came across Oz Reunion. I thought same old, same old, but how wrong can you be.I asked two simple questions and within half an hour i was sent a phone number and the rest is history. Thank you so much to the staff of Oz Reunion. Brilliant result.

Such a great asset

I placed a notice on Oz Reunion quite a few years ago and since then I have found a Sister, cousins and an uncle. Low and behold, a couple of weeks ago I got an email reply from Oz Reunion and it was from my Brother. Wow, we are going to meet each other for the first time this week. I'm so excited. Thank you Oz Reunion for being such a great asset.

David Bush

God bless you for this

There is no way I could ever thank you enough!! Had it not been for Oz Reunion, chances are that my 'brother' would have remained dead, as I thought he was. Instead, because of Oz Reunion, I have been able to embrace my brother, to look him in the eye, and to know after 34 years that he's alive, and we can be together again, forever!! There may be miles, but there will never again be distance! God bless you for this. It would have never happened without your website. Watch the video: Click here

I had a listing on your adoption website. My son and I have just (last night) reunited successfully thanks to your reunion site. My listing in the ‘Adoption’ section of Oz Reunion was posted for a very short 5 months. What a fantastic website. Thank you Oz Reunion. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Ciao and thanks forever Trisha & Mark. Read their story: click here

Reunited with my birth mother after 54 years

Thank you Mike. Through registering on your site I was approached by the team from Find My Family which led to me being reunited with my birth mother after 54 years. We were reunited on April 4/5 2009 (April 5 being my birthday) I also now have a sister and brother and 7 new nephews. To those of you who are still searching please don't give up it is worth it in the end.

A big thank you to Oz Reunion

Through the TV show, Find My Family, who got my details from your website, I was able to be re-united with my Birth Mother and family. A big thank you to Oz Reunion, I now know where I come from, which is very important. Thank you.

Tracy Stephens

Thank you for this great website

When I was little my birth mother disappeared from my sisters and my life this was 1963 .. my dad had remarried and we all moved on. We have both been on a long and exhaustive search trying to piece together the puzzle Kept coming up empty, until Kim stumbled across an entry on Oz Reunion in the Adoption Register. She found a name & looked it up, and low and behold all the information that we have SO DOES POSSIBLY ONE OF OUR LONG LOST SIBLINGS who we know nothing about. This is the first real breakthrough in nearly 40 years and the first small piece of info that has come across our paths. Thank you to the website hopefully we can get the rest of the puzzle solved and move on. This has given us plenty of hope and has made us all a family again ..it has changed all of our lives.

This is better than winning lotto!

Thank you so much , today I spoke to my son for the very first time, oh joy to finally get my one wish i.e. to learn that he was and is and always will be part of a beautiful and very loving family , into which he was welcomed with so much love and joy ,since I had to let him go in February 1969. This is better than winning the lotto!!. Thank you so, so much for your marvellous site, my son Jamie and I met for the first time in thirty eight and half years, on 17th August at Adelaide airport, oh what a wonderful moment, we hugged immediately and I truly thought my heart would burst with love and pride, that this fine young man was actually my son. The pure joy of that meeting will remain with me always. Watch the video: click here

Phyllis Roycroft

How can I ever thank you enough

It was a simple post on your website which led to my adoption reunion through a programme on TV .... like many others here I had nearly given up hope of ever "knowing". I now have my birth mother & 4 siblings in my life and there is plenty of love for all! Finding out about my mother, wonderful brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews & close indigenous family ties are just the beginning. How can I ever thank you enough Mike, for making the phone call that gave me a fairy tale ending.

Jeny OHara

Thanks again for making my dream come true

Thankyou for your website. it is the best thing ever. Well i have found my dad. He is alive and very healthy. thanks to all those people that emailed me and rang me with information. I now have a very large family. My dad has five other children and my mum has two and I'm the oldest of 3 sisters and four brothers. My dad is Douglas John Uerbergang. I'm very happy and my life is complete. I met my dad in July 2007 and the best thing was my mum {Mary} came with me. They hadn't seen each other since i was born. That was 47 yrs ago. It was the proudest day of my life. Not many other people would have the luck as i did to have both birth parents at the meeting.

Vikki Godden

Amazing! Thank you once again

I just wanted you to know that we have been successful in finding Ellen (birth mother) & other family members thanks to your site. As a result of your site, a half-brother that we didn't know even existed. So thank you VERY VERY much!! We felt like we had hit the final brick wall in ever finding anyone else, & then everything just snowballed over a period of 2 weeks. Amazing! Thank you once again for all that you've been instrumental in achieving for us.

Robyn & John Holloway

Thank You Thank You.

John Remington

No words can express my gratitude

It was my add on your site that brought not only my biological Mother and I together but also my biological Father. I am now surrounded by all these wonderful people, who have so much love and joy at finding me after 41 years of wondering if I was safe and happy. It is an amazing experience and they are beautiful people. I'm still in the process of meeting their families and have 7 half brothers and sisters to meet as well. Not a day goes by that I don't smile at all that has happened in such a short time. Thank you again for providing Australia with such an easy way to reunite people.

Lucy

You have changed my life

I would like to thank Mike and the team at Oz Reunion for helping me find my family after 27 years, I was reunited with my birth mum and siblings. On the 4th of May 2014 we were all together reunited as was. Thank you Mike for all your help. You have changed my life, and from overnight being an only child I have gained so much.

Domenic

Oz Reunion changed our lives

After twelve and a half years of searching for our older sister, I found her two years ago thanks to my very small post that had been sitting on Mike's website for a few years. I had found my birth family in the mid 80s, and a chance comment in 2000 started this search. Even though we'd all met up two years ago, it was only three weeks ago at our youngest sister's surprise 60th birthday lunch that we were all together for the very first time in our lives. Words cannot express our thanks enough - Mike, without you and your website, our lives would not be filled with the happiness we now have.

Fiona

A million thanks for the incredible service

Very pleased to say that my brother saw the entry I posted in Oz Reunion on March 7 and emailed me last week. All we knew was his birth name and that he was born a few years after me. We are now in contact - after 49.5 years. A million thanks for the incredible service you offer!

Gary

There is a type of friend that sticks closer than a brother and without them there is a large hole in your sole. Mike, you have given and are still giving a lot of people hope. If you have nothing else but hope, its a base to work from and then faith will spring forth. Thank you for being so faithful and administrating this website, especially for Australians. Your mates and those who know you owe you big time. Thanks Mike from all of us who you've blessed and about to bless.
Just for being there and doing what you do.

David Chancellor

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the work you are doing, if only some of the Govt agencies would be as concerned for the welfare of others, when I read some of the other listings I realise I'm not that badly off, it just breaks your heart ! It is only when you learn that you have been adopted that you can understand what feelings people have, and the pain and anguish of those who have been looking for years without success. I can only say to my fellow adoptees don't give up the search, sometimes the smallest thing can prove to be the key that opens the door, so read and re-read the things you can get your hands on and do a reverse search of family names through the on-line facilities of Births Deaths & Marriages in your state (check Deaths in particular to get parent's names, mother's maiden names and work backwards into family histories), I know that cleared up a few problems I had. Keep up the good work Mike, for you have helped so many in the time Oz Reunion has been active. Your site literally puts people's broken lives back together again, not many people can claim to have achieved that in their own lifetime.

Brian Morris

So once i get to meet my sisters in the flesh i will send mike some photos mike  can use on the website. If you are searching for a lost loved one, please don't give up, look how long it took me, and now that i have found my sisters, the missing parts of my heart have been restored, once again a huge thankyou. Denise Higginson.

Well I cant say enough about this site ... I posted here nearly six years ago and finally I found my family being my birth mum and two older sisters , distance is a problem to be reunited BUT the internet is a great thing and makes distance not seem so great.

Your site is most appreciated Regards Suzanne Maiden  (Sth.Australian Public Trustee Office)
