Biological mother

Crittenton Location: Kansas City, Missouri (Jackson)

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.

Search Details:

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

Brother

Crittenton Location: , District of Columbia ()

Timeframe:

1965

Search Details:

I am looking for my half brother. My father had a son with a woman named Judy in the spring of 1965. They were both in the peace corps at the time of the pregnancy. She came back to the US to give birth. She lived at Crittenton in D.C. along the reservoir. At some point my father came under the impression that the boy was adopted by an interracial couple in New York who were both doctors. It is unclear if that was a fact or a hope by our father, who passed away in recent years. Our father's name is Martin and he was half Chinese, in case that is a helpful detail.

My son

Crittenton Location: Youngstown, Ohio (Mahoning)

Timeframe:

9/1969-2/1970

Search Details:

I’m searching for my son, born 1/27/1970 at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Youngstown. I relinquished custody of him before I left the hospital, after being allowed to see and hold him just once. The formal relinquishment and adoption was completed either through Mahoning County Children’s Services, Lutheran Social Services, or Catholic Social Services. The social worker who handled our case was Sara(h?) Beebe. I was 18 at the time of my son’s birth. My mother forced me to give him up for adoption since, as she told me, she was “NOT going to be taking care of some baby” while I returned to school. I believe that my father would have done anything to have me bring him home, but my mother was ridiculously adamant about it, fearing what the neighbors would think. True. She and I have not gotten along since. One of my younger sisters and I have registered in various adoption registries to try to locate my son. I was told (true or not) that the adoptive parents were a dentist and his wife. I kind of remember that they MAY have been from the Sharon PA area. I could be very wrong about this. I named my son Johnathan (or Jonathan) Edwards Milligan. His birth father is Australian and was 19 at the time of his birth, named Alan Charles Perrin. We are still in contact with each other. Both families have significant medical histories that my son should be told about. I have cried over this boy so often! I’ve thought about him every single day over the past 50+ years. I hope he had a wonderful, happy childhood and that he is a successful, happy, productive man, doing work in his chosen field of endeavor. I’m happy to meet him, any time, any where. Thank you for helping us find our lost children! ❤️

Eleanor Snyder

Crittenton Location: Wheeling, West Virginia ()

Timeframe:

1946-1947

Search Details:

I am looking for my late father’s biological mother named Eleanor Snyder (maiden name). I believe she has passed, though I can’t find her obituary. I do not know who his biological father was. Eleanor was born in 1918 in Mannington, WV and was staying at the Crittenton home in 1946-1947. She had my father (John Fitzgerald, adopted name) on 4/11/47 at Wheeling Hospital around the age of 29. My father was adopted by John and Edna Fitzgerald of Cottageville/Ravenswood, WV. I have submitted my DNA to 23&Me and came up with a match with a possible 1st cousin/uncle who was also adopted in Wheeling WV, though he doesn’t know a name for either birth parent. He is 55 or 56 I believe. My dad would have been 73 this April.
I believe Eleanor’s parents were AJ (possibly Arley) and Mary Snyder of Mannington or Lincoln County area. I believe Eleanor had at least 5 sisters/1 brother.

If anyone has any information on Eleanor or her family, or knows who my father’s biological father, please contact me. My father desperately wanted to make a connection with his birth family, but unfortunately he passed away before he could do so. I would love to connect with someone who can help solve my father’s and our family’s puzzle.
Thank you for reading.
