Seeking siblings after 51 years

LETTER

I live in Perth, Australia and am looking for siblings.

I was adopted as a baby in Gisborne, NZ. My birth date is 23/01/1967.

I have 10 siblings — apparently I was number 11.

The day I was adopted the lady gave my adoptive mum a medicine bottle on it that said Beverly Ornsby. Ring any bells?

I am nearly 51 and part-Maori. I would love to find siblings.

If anyone can help me, please email me at: leighannejuniormanava@gmail.com

Hi, it's me - I think it was spelt Ormsby.
A little more about me, I am married with four daughters. I have asthma and diabetes - apparently hereditary. I am a child educator. I love volunteer work and am always giving/helping others. I love dancing/singing, mostly old school lol.
I have no hate towards my biological whanau (family). Hard times, you had to make decisions that probably really made a massive impact on your life.
Photos available if wanted.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
