The elderly guy searched for his father, but he gave up hope too soon…

David Sutherland set out ten years ago to identify his biological father. The man was born in 1943 and spent his youth in an orphanage, where his mother had taken him shortly after his birth during the war.

She returned for him ten years later, but she refused to tell him about her father for the rest of her life.

However, his own children offered to help him with the hunt. The family purchased a DNA test for David three years ago, which indicated a match with another guy — his father. He died, though, in 1999.

Disappointed, David walked 400 miles to his tomb in Scotland, expecting to die without learning anything about himself or his ancestors.

True, when David’s story went public, he discovered new relatives about whom he had no idea.

After reading an article about a man, his niece reached out to him and helped provide more information about his family tree. According to her, it turned out to be very unexpected – to meet a new relative.

It was a complete surprise, but a pleasant one. I really felt sorry for David because he found his father too late. Although he managed to find his grave, this could be the end of his story, and he would not be able to find out more. I was glad that I was able to contact him, tell him a little more, and help fill in some of the gaps, – said the niece.

The girl also added that she was thinking of meeting a man in the spring, after the restrictions. David himself admitted that it took him time to realize everything that was happening.

All the years that my family and I spent just trying to find the name of one person … And now I have a half-brother, sister and niece. We think it couldn’t get any better,” Sutherland said
