I was adopted 4/11/1951 and my mother died 2 years ago. I am trying to find out medical history of the birth parents, or as I refer to them "the people who had me". As I age, I am only concerned with medical history, no reunions. My mother and father were my parents. Does anyone know how to find out an adopted person's medical history in the state of Alabama? #1

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
