Family Reunited By Facebook

 

Updated : Aug 26, 2009

A teenager managed to track down fifteen members of her family thanks to facebook.

Sophie Featherstone was left devastated when her grandmother died after she had raised Sophie since she was 18 months old.

She told the Daily Mirror: "Nan and I were a real double act, I never felt I was missing out on family life as long as I had her.

"I occasionally asked about my parents and Nan would tell me what happened with my mum, but she didn't know who my dad was.

"My mum left me with a babysitter when I was 18 months old and, whether rightly or wrongly, the babysitter was worried about me and took me to Nan's."

While visiting a friend in Liverpool, she logged on to facebook and got a shocking email.

It was from a woman called Sarah Prescott, and the message read:

"Your dad would love to get in touch with you."

She began chatting online to Sarah, who revealed that Paul, her partner, had always been convinced she was his daughter but had been assured by members of the family that he wasn't.

Sophie arranged to meet her dad but also met her half-brother, Jessee, 19 months, and Sarah's children Kerry-Ann, 16, and Scott, 12, from a previous relationship.

She also discovered that she had five half-brothers and half-sisters from Paul's previous relationships.

Sophie now lives with the family and has discovered she has a large extended family.

"It was wonderful to have a family - I was so lonely and lost. I had good friends, but nothing compensates for a family you can depend on."
