This page is dedicated to all those who are missing through adoption.
I am a birthfather whose girlfriend from high school relinquished her first child in 1970,
into the arms of adoption.
While I continue to believe that adoption was the best choice at the time,
I have come to realize, through the births of 4 other sons,
that a part of me went away with that child, a piece of my soul that I pray to recover some day.

UPDATE: My long search is over!!!

I was contacted on May 20 by Tara, who had
begun searching that same day for her husband's biological parents.
My web presence paid off as she found the match within minutes.
Weeks passed as we attempted to determine whether or not her husband and I were indeed son and father.
Eventually we decided to submit to DNA testing to find out for sure.
(We used GeneTree and were very pleased with their service.)
On July 8, the test results arrived and confirmed the match.
We met face-to-face the next day. (He lives about 100 miles from me.)
On July 27, Dusty and his family were welcomed into the family
at a picnic attended by one of my other sons, my parents, 6 of my siblings,
and a slew of cousins - and Dusty's only biological niece.
We are having a great reunion.
Thanks to all who offered advice, support, help, and encouragement over the past 9 years.

September 20, 2002 - Dusty spoke with his birthmother today on the telephone.
She was very receptive and wants to meet him. The circle is closed. God bless.


I am including on this page details about a few of my friends who are actively searching.
I will include information for others who request me to, as space allows.

WHO WANTS TO ADOPT BABY BOY?

From the Watertown Daily Times, May 8, 1923

Is there anyone in Watertown who would like to adopt a baby boy about four months old? A mother in this city came to the Salvation Army rooms a few days ago and told Commandant Wall that she had a baby boy in healthy condition that she would like to have placed in a good home. Since that time the Salvation Army officers have been trying to secure a good home for the youngster. Anyone who is desirous of adopting a child is asked to call at the Salvation Army. A person that cannot furnish good credentials will not be allowed to take the child.

Birth Mom Place of Birth: Watertown, NY

Birth Mom Birthdate: 1939

Comments: John 's Mother kept him till he was 10 mos old and than the SSI made her give him up for adoption. Because her father had passed away in 1947 and left our mother with 12 kids and on SSI and they told Marjorie no more, and she had to give John up. They told my mother if she took Marjorie and John in that they would cut off her social services. So my mom could not help her daughter in keeping John,. Mom Passed away in 1988 and she always wondered where he was and if he was safe and in good hands. I would realy love to find John to see if he would like to see and know about us. Thank you for any help you can give me in this matter. Thanks, Clifford W Parish

Christine - Birth Mother seeking Male Adoptee

Chris is seeking her son

Date of Birth: 23 November 1964
Place of Birth: Rochester NY

This is a letter I never thought I would be writing.

My son has found me. He called late Thursday night and I was a little on guard, as some of you know I had a scam at one time pulled on me.

I was afraid to believe it really was him. He faxed me some pictures on Friday. They didn't come out the greatest but when I got to the last one I knew it was him. He looks a lot like his BF and one of my other sons. The resemblance was amazing.

He is going send in the paperwork for NYSAR. He knew information that I had not publicized about medical records. I know it's him I have no doubts. Now we will do the paperwork to confirm it.

He wasn't adopted till he was 4 yrs old. And best of all he still is using his birth name except of course his birth last name, the AP decided he was too old to change it.

Thursday was one of the only times he had searched. He was afraid of interfering or causing problems with my life. He also lived less than 5 miles from me most of his life, he also worked in a grocery store I had frequent. He now lives in Vegas which is so far away. He is talking about moving back to Rochester.

They adopted him late in life. We'll be talking again soon I'm sure but for now it will be long distance relationship

Everyone don't give up like I was so close to doing, I had felt we wouldn't never meet. When you least expect it.......it happens. Don't ever give up hope!!!!!

Unknown where the birth took place.

Bonnie, female adoptee, seeking Biological Family

My amended birth certificate says I was born on 5/10/69 in Syracuse, NY

I was adopted in Watertown, NY
No hospital or doctor is listed on my amended birth certificate.

I was in foster care in Jefferson County (I think) from birth
until placed with my adoptive family in late November/early December of 1969.

My adoption was handled through Jefferson County DSS
My case worker was Jean Butterfield

My birth mother was 16, in 10th grade.
was short, had brown hair, green eyes,
was athletic and interested in art.
She was quick tempered but outgoing and well-liked.

My birth father was 18, in 11th grade.
He was 5'10", 130 lbs. blonde hair, blue eyes,
played/sang in a combo.

They wanted to get married and keep me
but their parents were against it due to their ages.

The non-identifying info states that my birth mother
only agreed to relinquish me with great reluctance and that
this was prior to the time that father's rights were recognized.

My nationality is French/English/Irish.

My adoptive parents lived in Black River, NY.
My afather was an Episcopal Priest in the area.
They had one biological son at that time.

They moved to Baltimore, MD prior to the adoption being finalized
and came back to Jefferson County for the finalization
of the adoption in June/July of 1970.

I found out that my bmom was sent to a maternity home in Syracuse, which is why I was born there. There was some speculation that she, as a minor, would have been from Jefferson County, NY since I was returned there for adoption through Jefferson County DSS.

I have also learned that she left school (10th grade) in 1968 or early 1969 in order to go to the maternity home. My bfather broke up with her after she had me and they were apart during the summer. She was seen by a psychiatrist while in the hospital for depression but the notes say that she was "throwing a fit" over having to give me up.

She returned to school for the 1969/1970 school year and repeated 10th grade. She and my bfather began seeing each other again after returning to school...he in 12th grade, she in 10th again. I was in the hospital for 4 days and believe I was born late at night.

Forcep delivery leaving some sort of hemotoma on my head. My bfather's father was a high school graduate and owned his own business. My bmom's mother did not finish high school and gave birth to my bmom when she was 16. My bmom's father worked in a factory. My bmom had a sister who I assume was younger than she. I know this is a lot of info, but can you update my posting?

Thank you so much and God bless you!
