A young Fijian man, who was adopted by a couple from Ilinois in the United States of America has recently expressed his desire to know more about his biological family in Fiji.

Known as Rory by the adoptive family, the 21-year- old ,who carried the Fijian name Ronial Krishna Kumar was born in 1996 and is in search of his Fijian family.

His adoptive mother, Margaret Carlile informed Sun News that they had adopted Rory because they were unable to have children.

“We deeply desired to have a family and adopted our son from St Christopher’s Home on November 1st, 1997,” Ms Carlile said.

“He was born as Ronial Krishna Kumar on September 8th, 1996 and we are so blessed to have been able to adopt our precious son who also needed a family.”

Ms Carlile said they took Rory to their home in Queensland, Australia in early November 1997 before they moved to Ilinois.

“Rory has expressed his desire to know more about his birth family, especially his mother Rajeshni and his older brother whom we don’t know his birth date or name.

“We hope and pray that our beloved son might have his questions answered, find a happy and peaceful resolution to his feelings about his birth family,” she said.

According to Mohammed Yusuf who is currently helping Ms Carlile and Rory find the biological family, the family were from Tuvavatu in Rakiraki.

He said Rory had an older brother who was one or two years older than him.

“Ronial is a wonderful young man of 21 now and has many questions about his birth family,” Mr Yusuf said.

If anyone has any information in regard to Rory they may contact Mr Yusuf on Facebook who would be advising Rory and Ms Carlile with the information.
