Some deep questions at Link Up: John Westbury

When asked: “Will there ever be a time when everyone’s come home?” John Westbury replies: “No.” Vital records get lost, the people at “home” no longer recognise those who were taken away. He and other staff at Link-Up are currently helping more than 3,000 people to find their way home. Thousands more have been helped. John encourages those looking for their origins to be realistic about what they will find and to not disclaim the identity they already have, only to add to it.
