- While she is still searching for her daughter, the South African woman could not be happier to have finally found her son
A Durban woman has finally been reunited with her son after looking for him and his sister for over 34 long years. According to reports, her children were taken by the Pinetown based child welfare system when they were only babies.
In a recent interview, 56-year-old Kogie Perumal explained that she had left her then Motala Farm home for her job as a machine operator at a local carpet factory. When she returned she was met with the terrible news that the children had been taking by the welfare service who had allegedly received a tip-off that the children were being abused.
After trying desperately to locate her kids, Kogie reluctantly gave up, remarried, and had two other children. Deciding to try again, Kogie reached out to news publications with her story - and this worked out in her favour.
After spotting the article, her son decided to make contact with his birth mom, explaining to her that he and his sister were adopted by a Chatsworth family. On the 29th of November, Kogie visited him for the first time and says she knew immediately that he was her boy, IOL reports.
