I saw my sister's birthmother yesterday and did not identify myself out of respect for my sister. Was this the right move?

My sister is adopted and neither she nor the birthmother have ever known each other or sought each other out. So I figured it would be an invasion of privacy if I identified myself. I had never seen the person before but knew the name. Sister was adopted at 2 months old from a teenage birthmother. It is 23 years... show more My sister is adopted and neither she nor the birthmother have ever known each other or sought each other out.
