half sister

Crittenton Location: Baltimore, Maryland ()

Timeframe:

1941

Search Details:

I am searching for the daughter of my father, Stanley C. Hansen (1914-1969). He lived in Baltimore, MD Hampden neighborhood and his daughter was born August 21-22, 1941. No name known of the mother. She probably gave birth in Pennsylvania, possibly in the York FCH. The adoptive parents were Darrell and India Caless of Baltimore. Darrell was my father's best friend.
Right after the adoption took place, my father moved to Rockford Illinois and married my mother in 1945. He died there in 1969. Most likely, the birth mother has died and I know that the adoptive parents have died.

I am interested in locating my birth mother who gave birth to me at The Florence Crittenton Home for Colored Girls. I’m trying to gather information regarding a family medical history. It is most frustrating and unsettling when asked in medical appointments about my “family” medical history. My only response is “I don’t know; I’m adopted”. My beautiful daughters and I need to be able to contribute at least SOME information regarding my birth mother, when asked about her medical history. We currently, we have no clues!!

We are searching for our half sister who was born in either May or June of 1954. We believe her mother was from Miami as was our father. He was only told of her birth right before it happened and never spoke of it until later in his life. We have very few details but know that he left the very end of his freshman of college to be there when the mother gave birth. He was married to my mom a year later but she knew nothing of it. We are hoping to find her some day.

Victoria Lee Markland
My birth name is Victoria Lee Markland. I was born August 13, 1945 in Toledo, Ohio and adopted thru Lutheran Social Services of Northeastern Ohio. The adoption was finalized October 21, 1946 in Bryan, Ohio. I am looking for ANY member of my birth family - birth mother, birth father, any brothers or sisters, aunts, uncles, and/or cousins. I am now 61 years old and I have no intention of disrupting anyone's life - I just need to know where I came from. I have always been very talented in the field of music and went to college thinking I would be a concert pianist. I would love to know where my talent came from. I was adopted by wonderful people who gave me every possible advantage, but I have always felt incomplete. Just having some information of my background would help fill that void. If there is anyone out there who knows of my existence and can give me some info, I would be most appreciative. If you're my birth mother, please know that I love you, knowing the sacrifice you made. I have 2 grown daughters of my own and they fill my life with joy on a daily basis, as do my 5 beautiful grandchildren.

Mom passed away in 2014. We have since found her birth mother, Dorothy Lee (Brown) Markland. Dorothy passed away in 1982. We believe mom's birth father is George Telmos and has probably passed as well.

I am trying to fulfill mom's dream to find her birth family.
Thank you

I was 17 and sent to Florence Crittenton home in Miami Fl. I gave birth to a baby girl on August 24, 1970. I know the month and year are correct. She was moved to another county to be adopted. I gave permission at that time to give information to her if she ever wanted to find me. I'm sure that was kept closed. Just want to know you are okay and to let you know you have a half brother. I gave you the name, Christina Marie.
