adoption

English is not my language but I'll try to write my best. My husband was told at the age 31 he was adopted, he is now 38. He was born in San Francisco at the San Francis Memorial Hosp. 

  

Several years ago we started looking for information and in the way we have discovered that his adoption was not done very normal since there is no registration at the court of SF. Anyway, with the few info that his adoptive mother gave us we found a birth certificate in which states the name of his biological mother and father, their age and their birthplace. We hired a detective through the internet and he gave us useless info that leads nowhere. We have also use other internet resourses and always end up whith nothing.  

  

My husband is tired and hopeless of spending money without getting any feasible clue and I dont want him to give up. My husband was raised in Mexico, he's adoptive father died when he was 10 years old and his adoptive mother doesnt remember much of the process (or at least she doesnt want to remmember) . We live now in the Netherlands since 2 years ago, from here there are not many tools to continue but the internet. 

  

I really wish that some day any of his biological family read this post. He only wants to tell them that he is ok, and that his b.mother has 3 beautiful grandchildren.

Looking for my biological family

My name is Mallory. I live with my parents, Margret and Steve.  I am 19 years old. I was told i was adopted when i was little. Ever since then I've wondered about my family. This year when I turned 19 I was told I had two sisters by the names od Chrissy and Barbie.  My reaction was to start crying.  

  

I don't know what to think when it comes to my biological family. My parents told me that Lisa, my biological mother, was very abusive to me and my sisters when we lived with her. So naturally the feelings that come when the subject is on her aren't the greatest. But there are times when i find myself thinking of her and wanting to hear the whole story striaght from Lisa.   

  

There are times when I want so bad to find my biological familey that I would do anything.  The only thing stopping me is that i don't have a clue as to how to find them.  I don't have any last names. All I know is that my parents adopted me through Charter... in Saint Louis.  

  

I don't really feel comfortable asking my parents about my biological family because i feel like it upsets them. And I don't mean to because I'm greatful for where I am today and I love them very much... b ut at the same time I would like to meet Lisa and my sisters, Chrissy and Barbie.  

  

If anyone has any information as to hwo I could find them... please let me know. 

  

Mallory

It's me again..I would like to share more information that  I miss in my previous post. My husband was born in San Francisco, Ca. at the San Francis Memorial Hospital in May 04, 1967, His biological mother was 16 at the time of birth,  her last name is Ely and she was from Massachussets, his biolgical father was 18 and last name is Alvarez.  My husband was adopted together with another babygirl, they were told that they were twins, but they are no blood related, she was born in June.  

I have heard that are people called ANGELS who help adoptees to find their relatives....Does anyone could advise me in how to find a reliable source to search for my husband family?...How do I find and ANGEL?...I wish to help my husband to meet his bmother some day. Thank you Dr. Phil.

Looking for biological parents - IL

Hello!  

   

I am currently starting a search with the Children's Home and Aid Society of Illinois for my biological parents.  I was told about my adoption when I was in 2nd grade.  I've been wondering about my biological parents for many years now (I am currently 34 years old).  I've finally gotten the courage up to search for them.  I do not know whatwho I will find but I would like to know where I came from.  Here is the information I currently have:  

   

Born: 01-24-1971  

Hospital: St. Luke's in Chicago  

Birth Name: Biological Mother wanted to name me Norma Christine.  I have not seen my original    

  birth certificate so I do not know what is on there.  

   

If you know of anyone who can help, I would greatly apprciate it.  

   

Wendy
