I was adopted by a wonderful couple on 7/3/57 from Beverly Hospital in Montebello, Ca. I couldn't have asked for a better family or life. As it turns out, I was unable to have children of my own and have an adopted daughter. I also had the unfortunate experience of having a birthmom request a child to be returned. Adoption isn't an easy alternative...there is every bit as much pain as physically giving birth, but most is mental. There is concern about the childs health, history and the birthmom's change of heart. However, when it is all done, and the dust settles, life is wonderful. Always be honest with an adopted child. Both myself and my daughter always knew we were adopted...just something we talked about and it became the norm. It's an amazing way to create a family, and most people are surprised by how many factors that make up a person are environmental, and not hereditary. You will find you love an adopted child every bit as much as you would love a birth child. #2

Looking for birth parents. I was born in either Texas or New Orleans in 1955. My birth parents were at my wedding in Texas in 1981, and no one bothered to tell me at that time. Relatives won't tell me anything about my adoption, yet we grew up with my adopted brother's history. So why am i such a big secret? #3

I was born Jan. 15, 1955 in Los Angeles County I believe. I don't think my mother knew if she had a boy or girl. I was told she was around 25. Dr. Porter in Pomona may have delivered me. I was only 4lbs. 4oz. Looking to see if anyone is looking for me. At 58 I don't have a lot of hope but we will see. #6
