After taking amarylis bulbs out of storage and adding soil and moisture so they will bloom, new bulbs and leaves started from the mature bulbs. Will these bloom after first year if separated and allowed to grow?

You can separate the offsets and pot them up on their own, but don't expect them to flower their first season. They'll need a few year's growth before they're mature enough to produce flowers. (The industry standard is 2 years or 4 leaves before they're ready to flower.) Provide them with the same care as your parent plant and your new little offsets will bloom as soon as they're able.
