Anne gets her happy ending.

Whenever Anne Brown is asked how long the journey took to fly to Australia to finally meet her sister, she says it took her 46 years.

From the moment a school bully first blurted out to Anne that she was adopted, she longed to find a blood relative who she would feel was part of her family.

She dreamed of finding not only her birth mother but her biological father and any siblings or half-siblings she may have.

But her search ended in repeated heartache and disappointment.

Anne, 58, of Carron, Falkirk, was rejected by her birth mother.

She found and then lost contact with a half-sister.

And she only discovered where her real father lived the day after he had died.

But finally, she got a call from a woman in Australia who broke the news that she was her half-sister as they shared the same dad.

Now more than 12 years on, Anne and her sister Senga O'Connor are not only delighted to have found each other but are now close friends as well.

Here is Anne's story, complete with real-life happy ending.
