I've accepted her for what she was, a very caring person, and... it's given me, having met the-- her children apart from the one that lives in Spain, a girl... they welcome me with open arms once they-- they realised that I had proved that I was who I said I was... and it's given me a family that I never knew existed, and this is wonderful, even at this late stage in the proceedings.  Quite amazing.
