Surname(s):

LAVIOLETTE : MACKIE : RENWICK : SWAN  

Query Text:

I am searching for the truth about why I was adopted, & who my birth parents are. I was born LUCY LAVIOLETTE in Scotland (Edinburgh, I believe) in 1962 & was placed for adoption at birth with Dr Barnardo's in Edinburgh. I have been told that my birth mother was Scottish, & that her name was MORAG LAVIOLETTE nee MACKIE, but this may not be the case. The surname - LAVIOLETTE - is an unusual one, & came from the gentleman to whom my birth mother was married - a BELGIAN guy - who, apparently, was NOT my birth father. Again, thus story may not be true, but it is what I was told by my adopted mother growing up. My birth mother met & quickly married a Belgian guy. However, she wasn't very happy with him, & when she met an old boyfriend in Blackpool in 1961, she had a brief liaison with him, from which came me ! Her husband, & both his & her parents & family put pressure on her to have me adopted, which she did... Thus is what I have been told all my life, although my adopted father said he is doubtful about the veracity if the story. It does sound rather romantic, & the sort of thing one might tell an adopted child to make her feel less unwanted... I was very lucky, having the best adopted parents in the world... They are both deceased now, & I am curious. Can anyone provide any information, I wonder ?
