Your comments:

- "A very touching and inspiring story. I'm sure this gives hope to people who are searching for lost loved ones and links with the past.

Good for Tracey."

- Jill B.Hirst, Stafford.

Lost and Found. By Tracey Thornton.

What's your story about?

Lost and Found is about finding my family on the internet. They had been in Zimbabwe for over 25 years and communication was broken.

Four weeks after finding them, my son and I flew out to Zimbabwe to met them.

Why did you choose to tell this particular story?

Growing up without a 'true family' affected me greatly. Finding them was one of the most amazing things to ever happen to me.

What was the experience of making your digital story like?

Digital story telling was one of the hardest but most rewarding things I have done.

It was fun, hard work and you learn skills you never thought you would require.

You meet new people, who then become great friends, and you get to meet the great story telling team.

Thank you for this wonderful experience all of you. I have really missed you.
