My estranged mum died before I could track her down – but who I found instead changed my life forever | The Sun

A WOMAN was in floods of tears after she discovered her biological mother had died before meeting her – and she had a brother and a sister she never knew about.

Farmer Sian Jones, 57, was adopted in her teens and raised on the island of Guernsey.

She had been trying to find her mother for 20 years when she appeared on the ITV show.

Her biological mother, Sylvia Humphreys, was forced to give up Sian for adoption in Clynnog-Fawr, when she was 16.

Her family were convinced Sylvia was too young to raise a child and pressured her to give her away.

Three years later, Sylvia, then 18, had another child called Sharon and fought to keep her.

A few years later, she had a third child, a boy named Stewart.

But her parents pressured her to give the baby up, fearing she'd be unable to cope as a single mother-of-two. 

Sian said: “To any young mum, it must have been frightening to be told that you can’t keep your unborn child.” 

The Long Lost Family team discovered that Sylvia had moved to Staffordshire, but unfortunately she had passed away in 2007.

But the team were able to find Sian's brother Stewart and her sister Sharon. 

Host Nicky Campbell met with Sharon, whom he hoped would reveal why Sian was put up for adoption.

Sharon surprised Nicky with a third sibling called Stuart, who was also adopted.

He had reconnected with her four years ago but had also never met his birth mother.

Sharon said: “Mum would have been 16 when she had Sian and the authorities felt that she wouldn’t have been able to cope with a baby.”

She then revealed that when Sylvia was 18, she fell pregnant with her and “didn’t want the same thing to happen” and she therefore kept her second child.

Three years later, Sylvia was forced to give up a third child, Stuart, as she was “unable to afford" to keep him.

Sharon explained that Sylvia didn’t talk about Sian or Stuart a lot with Sharon because it was "too painful".

But said that Sylvia would be “so pleased" to know that the siblings had reunited.

Host Davina McCall shared the discovery with Sian, who admitted "It’s something I’ve always wanted.”

Stuart and Sharon travelled to Wales from Staffordshire to meet their sister for the first time.

Sharon said the day was “hugely momentous” for her.
