[b]Kia ora to all the Whanau out there,
My name is Gloria Topia, my father was James (Jim) Topia, he was born in Panguru, Hokianga. He used to live in Ponsonby Auckland, he used to hang out down at the Maori Community Centre in Ak Central.
I believe that he had a daughter and her name is Helen, last name unknown. She would be about 50 now and last I heard, she was living in Ngaruawahia.
I feel like there is something missing in my life and I know she wanted to meet our Dad a few years ago, but it never eventuated. I'm sorry to say that our Dad has passed. I am the youngest of 5 and if anyone knows anything, please contact me.
Helen, if your out there, I would love to meet you. Its a shame that it has taken this long for me to write this but I am glad that I have had the courage to do it.
Nga mihi kia koutou katoa:D
