An 81 – year – old woman has discover that her 103 -year – old mother is still alive after she had spent 61 years trying to find her .Born in the Bethany Home and moved to Kirwan House at age two , Eileen Macken was given someone else’ s birth certificate at 16 and lived under that identity for 60 years , Yahoo Style UK has reported .
Mrs . Macken first started trying to find her biological mother when she was 19 , but was beginning to lose all hope of finding her after searching for more than six decades .
But with the help of a genealogist who offered to assist when she opened up about her story on a radio show last year , Mrs . Macken was able to track down her elderly mum earlier this month .
“ I can ’ t believe it , when I got the word that she was alive, all I want to do is to meet her , ” Mrs . Macken said .
She said she found her mother after taking a DNA test .
The 61 – year – old who grew up in an orphanage in Dublin hasn ’ t yet met her mother , but has spoken to her on the phone and is hoping to make the trip “ across the water, ” when she recovers from a recent eye operation .
“ I spoke to her on the phone but she couldn ’ t hear me , ” she said . “ She ’ s a bit like myself , I ’ ve only one good ear . “ She kept saying , “ I can ’ t hear you , I can ’ t hear you .
“ All I want is to see her . ”
Mrs . Macken also found out she had two half – brothers who were still alive and were in their 70 s .
Speaking about how the years of searching had affected her , Mrs . Macken continued : “ The sadness that goes with being alone , even to this day , different things would set me off , I ’ d say , ‘ if only I had a brother , if only I had a sister . ’
“ I think it ’ s just within you that you have no blood relatives . But I have now . ”
