My mom was adopted at 8 months old, to two very wonderful people. My mom was born in the Good Sumeritan Hospital in Nampa, ID. On July 13, 1960 birth name Evelyn Marie Mireles. Her mother Dolly Thompson Mireles was 26(born Vancover, Wa. 1934). Her dad, Juan Jose Mireles was 34(born Brownsville, TX. 1926). They married and devorced quickly(1xxxxx/61). There is a possible sibling born within a few years of 'Evelyn 1960'. Looking for possible family members. #1
