"I would just like to thank Mike for this site. Through Oz Reunion I have found my 2 sisters who I have been searching for over 30 years. Prior to finding this site, I had hit a dead end in my search. 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 to Oz Reunion." Denise Higginson

After only 2 weeks on OZ Reunion, I found my mother, 2 sisters, a brother, 2 nephews & 3 nieces and an aunt & so far, things are going really well. To others who are still searching for their families, please don't give up hope, have faith that you will find your loved ones, they could be looking for you too.
