Hi Norma.  The link for Porter-11856 now takes you to the profile for Gary Porter (Porter-11460), so it appears that a merge has already been done there and a connection was inadvertently dropped.  I think what you want to do now is open the edit screen on your own profile, Yuille-27, go to the section on the right to Edit Family and add children, and then just enter your son's WikiTree ID, Porter-11460, and save.  That should connect the two profiles.  Please post again if I'm misinterpreting your question.

Hello Dennis, sorted it out eventually, I have managed to do what you said and kept at it until it sorted itself out. Thank you.
