If you think you know me, the hospital is Glendale Adventist Community Hospital, dr. Whittaker delivered me Sept. 1 1966, in the afternoon. your family lives somewhere in Orange County California and Los Angeles area. you are of the mormon religion, i was told, i have 3 or 4 older siblings with blonde hair. The last name was either KISCHNER, KISNER, or KIRSCHNER.

Adoptee

I was born on 3/10/69 and was adopted from The Cradle Society in Evanston, Illinois. I am interested in finding my birth mother and/or father. I do not want to invade anyone's life, even a picture and some medical information would be wonderful.

 

Thank you kindly.

Have you e-mailed show or Dr. Phil. I'd love to see you reunited with your birth mom. I mean this in a respectful and loving way straight from the heart. I'll add your finding your mom to my prayers. You might write into Oprah, Maury Povich and Montel Williams as all discreetly unite people with loved ones. Dr. Phil would be the best way (as far as on TV) as he is so skilled with all the emotional aspects of reuniting. I am going to send an e-mail to Dr. Phil and ask him to help you even if you don't want to be on TV. God Bless You A LOT for you ARE a blessing to MANY here and I'm certain there where you are too...

I don't think it will hurt to post this because without your name or birth mother's name not much anyone else except you could do with below. I was hoping when I searched for your birthdate that I'd find your birth mom yet I did not. Likely, you have tried the same thing and have all the below. If not, I hope something below helps you find your birth mom. As special as you are I imagine your birth mother's heart has been hurting every day since she lost you. I'll pray for y'all's reunion to be SOON. I saw on Cradle FAQ's once you sign papers that's it. I just have this deep ache in my heart for all the mom's who signed then regretted signing or wanted to keep child yet felt unworthy to do so gave up child hoping and praying for a better life than birth mother felt she could provide. I'd be hoping and praying my birth daughter would find me and not hate me for loving her SO much that I wanted her to have more than I felt I could give her. Well, I have tears in my eyes so I'll stop. I hope everything works out the best possible way for you. You deserve that for all you have done for others. God Bless You and all those dear to you A LOT. Best of luck on your journey to your birth mom. How proud I'd be to have a daughter as gifted and poised as you so I know she will be too. (((HUGs)))

Illinois Searcher

I am helping my husband search for his birth parents.  He was born in Chicago, IL on 5/27/79.  We are desperately seeking to find them. He had some health problems growing up and we now have a  2 yr old daughter that we want to know if she is reluctant to have the  same problems.  We have contacted the adoption agency and they have his file but can not share info unless we pay.  We can not afford to pay seeing that we are a one income family.  We have searched many websites and registered with the state of Illinois.  What else can we do?  We need and angel to help!  or a miracle!!

STILL IN SEARCH

 

 

HELLO! MY NAME IS CHERE LYONS-ROBERTS, I AM 33 YEARS OLD WITH SIX BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN AND A WONDERFUL HUSBAND. I HAVE SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT MY BIRTH PARENTS, THAT LEAVES A BLANK SPOT IN MY HEART.

WHEN I WAS 10 YEARS OLD MY ADOPTED FATHER SAT ME DOWN AT MY GRANDMOTHERS HOUSE AND TOLD ME THAT I WAS ADOPTED, IN WHICH AT THAT TIME REALLY CONFUSED ME.

HOWEVER WHEN HE TOOK ME AND MY BOTHER HOME TO OUR MOTHER I ASKED HER IF I WAS AND SHE STATED "NO, WHERE WOULD YOU GET THAT?" SO I THEN TOLD HER THAT MY FATHER TOLD ME THAT, SHE THEN WENT CRAZY. SHE WAS SO UPSET WITH MY FATHER. YET SHE TOLD ME THAT IT WAS NOT SURE. THAT REALLY CONFUSED ME BECAUSE I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY MY FATHER WOULD TELL ME SOMETHING LIKE THAT. HOWEVER I LET IT GO, BECAUSE I SAW THE HURT IN MY MOTHER'S FACE.

KNOW IMAGE BEEN TOLD SOMETHING LIKE THAT FROM ONE PARENT YET THE OTHER TELLS YOU THAT IT IS UNSURE. I WAS SO FAR GONE ABOUT THIS SITUATION.

IT WAS WHEN I WAS ABOUT 16 YEARS OLD, ABOUT TO GET MY FIRST JOB AND I NEEDED MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE. WELL WHEN I WENT TO PURCHASE IT, THE COURT HOUSE HAD NO RECORDS. I THEN WENT TO MY MOTHER AND ASKED HER ABOUT AND SHE TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY ABOUT AND SHE WILL GET FOR ME. THAT WAS ALSO CONFUSING YET I LEFT IT ALONE BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT HER TO HURT.

AS YEARS WENT BY I WAS TOLD BY A COUPLE OF MY MOTHER'S FRIENDS AND MY AUNT THAT I WAS A SPEACIAL CHILD BECAUSE I WAS ADOPT. NOW THE PRESSURE IS HEAVY AND I'VE GOT TO ASK AGAIN, SO I DID, ONLY THIS TIME I GOT A DIFFERENT ANSWER. MY MOTHER FINALLY ADMITTED THAT I WAS ADOPTED. I WAS 31YEARS OLD AND PUZZLED, BECAUSE I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SHE DID NOT WANT TO TELL ME. I TOLD MY MOTHER, NO MATTER WHAT SHE IS THE ONLY MOTHER I KNOW THEREFORE SHE IS THE ONLY MOTHER I HAVE, YET I STILL HAVE THAT RIGHT TO KNOW WHO MY BIRTH PARENTS ARE.

WELL THAT DID NOT GO VERY FAR BECAUSE SHE ONLY GAVE ME, NOT EVEN A HAND FULL OF INFORMATION. SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING AND COULD NOT REMEBER WHAT ADOPTION AGENCY THEY WENT THROUGH. I FOUND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE, EVEN MY OWN FATHER WOULD NOT GIVE ME ANY INFORMATION.

I HAVE CALLED DIFFERENT AGENCY, WROTE, LOOKED ON THE INTERNET AND STILL NO ANSWERS. WHEN I FIRST STARTED LOOKING I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE THIS HARD. ALSO WITH THE LITTLE INFORMATION I'VE GOTTEN FROM MY MOTHER, FATHER AND AUNTS, REALLY WASN'T MUCH TO GO BY YET ALL OF THERE STORIES WERE THE SAME.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN THIS SITUATION? I HAVE HEALTH ISSUES THAT ARE UNABLE TO BE ANSWERED IN WHICH I FELL IS VERY SELFISH.

I LOVE MY CHILDHOOD AND WOULD NOT CHANGE IT FOR NOTHING IN THE WORLD, ALSO I LOVE MY MOTHER AND FATHER WHOM TOOK ME IN WHEN THEY DID NOT HAVE TO AND RAISED ME VERY WELL , AGAIN WOULD NOT CHANGE IT FOR NOTHING IN THIS WORLD.

IF I HAVE BROTHERS OR SISTERS IN WHICH I WAS TOLD THAT I HAVE SEVEN BROTHERS OR SISTERS OR BOTH, I WANT TO MEET THEM.

I WILL KEEP SEARCHING UNTIL I FIND SOME TYPE OF INFORMATION.

searching for my birth parents

I found out from my father that adopted me that Virginia Huff (Not sure on spelling - dad thought it could be Hough) was my birth mother.  She was a waitress in the Kansas City MO area and privately gave my brother (born in 1965) and me up for adoption (we were very blessed that the same couple adopted both of us each at the time of birth).  I know that she was born in 1941 or 1942 and that she had a 4 year old son when I was born in 1967.  I know that she was divorced for more than 4 years when I was born.  She was taken by ambulance to Wetzel Osteopathic Hospital for both births. 

I need some information as I am a cancer survivor and need the medical background for my kids.  I would like to meet my birth parents and my older brother.

If anyone knows or suspects anything, please let me know.  Thank you.
