    Heart looking for my halfbrother born 10/10/1967 in massachusetts

    I am looking for my halfbrother born on 10/10/1967. my mother (age 16 at the time)was put in the salvation army home in or near boston, massachusettes,where her son who she named david was taken from her at birth. my mothers name was cynthia lee francis. she did not want to give him up and suffered at his loss. we celebrated his birthday every year until she died in july 1989. I would like to find my brother or anyone who was with her at the home in boston during the summer/fall of 1967.

    And to my brother if you ever read this, know that your birthmother loved you and you have a HUGE birthfamily waiting to meet you.

    Love, your sister,
    Jennifer

    Booth Memorial Maternity Home CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

    I am looking for my grandmother. She gave birth to my mother Thelma Marlene in the Booth Memorial Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa, on the 10. January 1939. Apparently her name was Miemie Solomon. She later married a man by the name of Buirski. She gave birth to another child, a boy named Paul, at a later point in her life. Paul should be younger than my mother. She told my mother she was moving to Canada. My mother saw her at a later point in her life, but then lost contact or prefered to not have any contact. My mother is of little help. My mother was adopted by a family called Visagie. All I would like is to find remaining family members. If anybody ever heard about this lady, please mail me. Thanks. I realise she is most likely no longer alive, but I hope some family member of hers might still be.

    PS: So she could have gone through life being called Miemie(or Mimi or Mini or Minnie) Buirski after her marriage to Buirski as Solomon was her maiden name. Thanks for your help!

    I posted this some time ago. Would like to post again for you. Contact this agency for help in your search.

    The Salvation Army
    Maternity Home & Hospital Records Ministry
    PO Box 22646
    Long Beach, CA 90802-5646

    They were very helpful, but since the state (Colorado) where my son was born still has some records sealed (including mine) I have had no success so far.
    If Washington has open records your search will be much easier than mine.

    Also register at GS ADOPTION REGISTRY. They can be very helpful.

    See some of my other posts in June and July 2012 for other info I wrote in reply to other posts.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    Salvation Amy Maternity Home, Birmingham, AL

    I went to the Salvation Army Home & Hospital Home for unwed mothers in Birmingham, AL a month or two before giving birth to a baby girl. She was born on December 21, 1970. I believe she weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces. Approximately 2 weeks later, I was discharged and returned to my home.

    I have never tried to find my birth daughter because I did not think that I deserved to. I also did not know what her life had been like or if she would ever want to have any contact with me or have her life disrupted in any way.

    I am now hoping that through this forum to be reunited with her if she should be receptive to that. I would also like for her to meet and get to know her sister.

    I would also appreciate any information concerning the home in Birmingham and how I might obtain a birth certificate and any records relating to the adoption.

    If anyone has any suggestions or thinks they may be able to help me, please feel free to contact me through email:

    Please read my post of 5-18-13. It has some information where you can start a search. I have no idea what Alabama laws are regarding adoption records, but you should try checking with the Birmingham courts also.

    Good luck!

    My dad was born January 27th 1945, to a woman named Etta Mae Crounse (name on his birth certificate...may not be accurate though), we were told that she was either married or engaged to a man overseas fighting in the war, and had an affair, (not sure if that is accurate either), she had named him James Leroy (name in baby book said given to him by his mother...different handwriting than grandma's). He lives in Omaha, NE and wants to find family, his health is not good.
