WHILE a white Christmas and skydiving are typical bucket list events, all Maryborough's Kelly Igglesden wants to do is meet her birth mum before she dies.  

The mother of one was adopted when she was just 10 hours old because her own mother was too young to look after her.

While her parents have always told her she's adopted, it wasn't until a few years ago Kelly was going through a rough time in her life that she felt a strong urge to get to know her birth mum.

"I felt out of place, like a piece of me was missing," Kelly said.

After finding her birth mum through social media, the pair skyped and while she touches base from time to time, meeting her mum in Malaysia is at the top of Kelly's bucket list.

"My dad told me if he was to win big he would take me to Malaysia," Kelly said. 

Believe it or not, Kelly's dad won big, but he died before they had a chance to go to Malaysia and the money he won was spent on funeral costs. 

Kelly said she hopes to visit her mum some day and just can't wait to give her a hug and get to know her.
