Write and Read a Record containing a bitmap into a stream

Good day I have this problem and need a solution I have a records like follows:

MyBitmapRecord = Record
Name: String[100];
MyBitmap : TBitmap;
Age : Integer;
End;

I require a record like above to be saved into a streamfile...

my Code is currently like this

Procedure writeToFile(Fname: String;Rec: MyBitmapRecord);
Var
Stream: TStream;
bStream: TMemoryStream;
Len : LongInt;
Begin

stream := TFileStream.Create(Fname,fmCreate);
bStream := TMemoryStream.Create;
try
bstream.Clear;
Len := Length(Rec.Name);
stream.WriteBuffer(len,sizeof(len));
stream.WriteBuffer(Rec.Name[1],sizeof(Rec.Name));
stream.WriteBuffer(Rec.Age,sizeof(Menu1.Age));
Rec.Mybitmap.savetoStream(bstream);
aStream.Position := 0;
len := bstream.Size;
stream.WriteBuffer(len,sizeof(len));
stream.Copyfrom(bstream,0);
finally
stream.Free;
bStream.Free;

End;

Procedure Readfromfile(FName: String;Var Rec: Mybitmaprecord);
Var
Len : LongInt;
Stream: TStream;
bStream: TMemoryStream;
Begin
stream := TFileStream.Create(Fname,fmopenRead);
bstream := TMemoryStream.Create;
try
stream.ReadBuffer(len,sizeof(len));
SetLength(Rec.Name,len);
stream.ReadBuffer(Rec.Name[1],len);
stream.ReadBuffer(Rec.Age,sizeof(Rec.age));
Rec.MyBitmap := TBitmap.Create;
stream.ReadBuffer(len,sizeof(len));
bstream.size := 0;
bstream.CopyFrom(stream,len);
bstream.position := 0;
Rec.MyBitmap.LoadFromStream(bStream);
Finally
Stream.free;
bStream.free;
End;

The writetofile procedure appears to work... However when I call the readfromfile procedure I get an error stating no a valid bitmap file... Can someone help me URGENTLY plz
