Mainly my adoption records

Crittenton Location: Souix City, Iowa (Souix)

Timeframe:

1974

Search Details:

I am interested in finding out about my adoption because I deserve to know where I originated from, as well as knowing any background and medical history.  I am concerned about my medical history for sure because I have a daughter and granddaughter, and I want to know if there is anything that is hereditary.  In all honesty and in my opinion, I shouldn't have to give reasons because the records pertain to me, and it should be my constitutional right to know about myself.  Again, that is just my opinion.  Unfortunately, I don't have the funds to pay right now, as I am unemployed, but am willing to make arrangements for payments if need be.
      Please forgive me if I have a little attitude, but I've gone my whole life feeling incomplete, knowing I'm adopted but knowing nothing about my adoption, medical history, or biological parents and siblings.  Everytime I've tried to gain access to my records, I always got the runaround.  I've been trying for 24 years, so I hope you can and will help me with this.  Thank you.

                             Sincerely,

                                Nancy McLaughlin

Birth mother

Crittenton Location: Sioux City, Iowa (Woodbury)

Timeframe:

1962

Search Details:

I was born at Saint Luke's Hospital in Sioux City Monday, May 7, 1962, and immediately placed in the Florence Crittenton Home. About two weeks later, I was adopted by a couple from Hartley, Iowa, which is where I spent the next 18 years (with summers in Okoboji!). I received my bachelor's in journalism and English from Buena Vista University and a master's in communications and public relations from the University of Northern Iowa. Then spent nine years in Pittsburgh, first as an account executive with a marketing agency, then as senior writer/medical writer with a large academic medical center. I inadvertently found my way back to Iowa (Burlington, to be exact) and was the marketing communications director for Great River Health for 22 years. After a one-year stint as a university marketing professor, I'm now vice president of communications for the Iowa Hospital Association in Des Moines. Wife (teacher), two sons in college, one dog, one cat. I'm at the age where it would be good to know potential biological medical issues ... and I want my biological parents to know I turned out OK. And being a writer ... I'm curious about the rest of the story.

Timeframe:

Search Details:

My birth mother is Ruth Alcorn who gave birth to me on December 20, 1956 in Sioux City, Iowa. Shortly after, I was adopted by a wonderful family. At age 35, I searched for Ruth and found her family. She had died at a very young age, but left a young son and baby daughter, my half-siblings. They were adopted by their stepmother who refused to share information about Ruth. We know so little about her. I am hoping to find anyone who was at the home with Ruth in 1956 who would be willing to tell me a bit about her. Thank you so much! It would mean the world to me to hear from you.

Biological mother

Timeframe:

Search Details:

Hello,

I was born in March of 1960 and adopted the same month. I was told my birth mom was young and of European descent and my birth father was half Japanese. An Ancestry DNA test confirmed this but no real luck finding relations. It's very overwhelming. It would mean the world to me find someone in my biological family. My adoptive parents have passed and I am an only child. There are some medical genetics I am interested in as well. I by no means want to be intrusive. If anyone can give me advice on the next steps it would be greatly appreciated.

I was born in DC at DC General on March 17, 1965 to Amanda (Mandy) Harbaugh. She was 20 years old at that time and was from Vienna, VA. She graduated from Falls Church HS in 1962 and after attending secretarial school worked at the White House as a typist. I was adopted in Fairfax County VA and have gone on to have a wonderful life to date. I am looking for any information about Amanda, because she disappeared without a trace in December of 1973. She left behind two young daughters to be raised by their father, whom Amanda was seperated from at the time of her disappearance. I would also love to learn who my biological father was/is, as he was not named in my adoption records. If you have any information, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant, please reach me - I would love to learn anything. Thank you for your time, Patti
