Assisting my father in birthfamily search. He was at the Iowa Children's Home Society in Des Moines Iowa (Polk County) & the adoption went thru in 1949.
His birthmother was 17 in April of 1947 ...thus she would have been born between April 1929 & April 1930. She completed 10th grade & was 5'7" (large boned). The birth father was 20 or 21. Completed H.S. 2.5 years in Navy & in 1947 was at college on the GI bill. He was 6'2" with black hair & blue eyes. I have some additional information including adoption file # & another file #, case worker names, etc.

I've done a fair amt of research and hit a couple of dead ends...any leads appreciated. Even help with how best to try and find info on kids that came thru the Children's Home...

Thanks,
Kriss

What is your birthname and your adopted name? Robert Dale
Comments:
I'm just starting to look for any of my birth family(s).
After losing both of my adopted parents...Glenn 1988, Marion 1990...I need to know if I have any brother/sisters...other than my adopted sister Teri(3 yrs younger)(not related)
I don't want to stir up any hard feelings...this is 1 of the reasons that I waited so long.
I don't know the reason why my birthmother and birthfather gave me away...and I don't want to hurt their feelings.
I just need to know if anyone has been looking for me.
Or if anyone even knows about me.
After I was given away the Iowa Children's Home Society, had lent me out to the Iowa University in Ames...for the girls in the dorms to see how it is for little babies...I was nicknamed "Bobby"
Anyone remembering this also would be welcomed as I feel everyone should be thanked.
I haven't requested the records to be opened, for fear, of hurting anyone.

Hi - My mother (who is now deceased) gave up for adoption a baby boy that was born in Des Moines, IA.

Unsure at this time of date of birth - we(my sisters and I - his 1/2 sisters)estimate it was the spring or summer months between 1968 to 1970.

My mother's last name at the time of adoption was Daniels but her maiden name was Mahurin so not sure what was used on the birth certificate.

If you are an adoptee looking for biological family and meet any of the info above please email me.

If you are looking we would love to find you.

I am searching for my Birthdaughter Born 10/17-19/81 @ Mercy Hospital, Des Moines IA & Adopted through Catholic Charities of DM. Her Birth name was Amanda Renee Carter & may now be ERIN (per the adoption agency in 1981).

I corresponded with her Amom thru the Agency for 4 years & the last letter from AMom requested a letter from me to Erin, to be given to her when she turned 18. BUT NOW CC (the Agency) is refusing to pass this letter on to either ERIN or her Aparents until she turns 21.

Hoping to locate Erin or her Aparents to update medical info, give her the letter she is expecting & let her know that I Love her & am open to any contact that she may need or want.
Thinking of you, Love, Michele, Your Birthmother
