The Moneyologist: My mother abandoned my brother and me — am I entitled to know what’s in her will?

Dear Moneyologist,

I have somewhat of a strange tale. My mother abandoned my brother and I when we were very young, aged five and three respectively. We never heard or saw her again from that day to this. In January, I located her, some 46 years later, with the help of a private investigator. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the hugs and kisses reunion I had pictured all my life.

We never knew anything about her other than her name on our birth certificates. Her age was not correct. She lied about her age because she was two weeks shy of her 18th birthday and feared that her child would be taken away.
