Dear Sir / Madam,

As already advised, the fact that the father has written a Will implies that he is only keen to transfer his property after his demise and not during his lifetime. Circumstances then may have compelled the father to give his girl for adoption, but that does not absolve the girl's right to claim a share in her father's property. She was already deprived of family bonding and ties when she was given for adoption, so I see no way that she is going to give up and surrender her rightful claim to a share in her father's property.
