    reply with a general reply not going into specifics about the children and their ages etc and see if she replies to it.
    you could just ask where she got your email address most people wouldn't be offended asking that
    also could your email be on the cumbrian children's information service details

    this is probably polite, surely when they got your email address they would of asked for your phone no too?
