This is the non-identification information my mom was given about her birth family and events surrounding her birth and adoption. She requested this before I ever knew she was even interested in finding her biological mom and dad. If you can help in any way or if you know what our next step should be, please let me know. I’ve put this information on the about page.

That’s it for now. Next steps will include DNA testing and possibly requesting new non-identification paperwork. I’ve joined a few adoption search groups and apparently, you can ask for new non-id’s every couple of years. Generally, they don’t send out the same information every time so we might get lucky and get a new piece of the puzzle.
