All I know of them is that my mother was Cheyenne River Souix and my father, Andre K. Spotted Elk is Oglala Souix. Last known location was in 1999 in Farmington, New Mexico #1

Please help. I was born in Pocatello, ID on December 12, 1972. I was placed through LDS Social Services. I have chronic kidney disease. My adoptive parents are amazing. In fact, I received my first kidney from my adoptive dad. My records were sealed and the only thing I was allowed to know about my biological family was that my mom worked at the Natural History Museum and she had/has blonde hair at the time of adoption. If anyone can give me some advice I would appreciate it. I am not just looking for a new donor – I would like to know who I am and who my kids are. #4

I normally don't put my personal business on FB, but I just wanted to let everyone that has read or shared my adoption story and commented sweet kind words to me. This is something that I have always wanted to know information about my adoption, but really never went to this length in try to find out information. So if you want to share my story please feel free to share, maybe if someone shares it, maybe I might get some leads on information about my adoption. I'm going to share it again on my page. I'm hoping that once you have read my story, that you will find my adoption to be very unique with a lot of unanswered question. I have tried to provide enough information that you be willing to take on this challenge. I have seen the success you have in finding out information from your show. I’m praying that your team would be able to help me. This is something that I have been trying to get closure on for years. My name is Hope Darlene Anderson, I’m 42 years old I live in #9

I’m looking for my daughter. I was forced to give her up for adoption between the years of 1xxxxx in the months of April or May at Englewood Hospital in Chicago, IL. The name on the certificate is “Baby Born” and the father on the birth certificate is “Roger Born”. The Dr. that delivered my daughter is Dr. Caliendo and his Brother is the lawyer that handled the adoption. He had an office on 111th street. It was a private adoption so I don't have any more information. Even if you’re not sure if this is you, reply anyway. The birth certificate could have been changed with the adoptive parents help to cover the adoption up. I’m desperate to find you. #11

My sister had a baby that was given up for adoption in the late 1960's. We know it was a boy but that is all we know. Our family has some health issues that this child should know about and we would love to meet him. I pray that he grew up loved and happy! My sister has never fully recovered from the "loss" of knowing her son but knows she did the best for him. Open adoptions were not available at that time so we are at a loss on how to find him. We do not want to interfere with his life but just want to know he is well and has a happy life! #12

I am looking for my kids Aprilmay Marie Gillen D.O.B: 12-14-96, Brian Edward Casper Gillen D.O.B: 10-8-97, Melody Faith Gillen D.O.B: 2-10-99, Katrina Maureen Groombridge D.O.B: 8-30-00, Michael Allen Steward D.O.B: 10-18-02. I was under age with the first two in AZ. I got into trouble in CA. when Melody was taken and the grandmother of the first three took Katrina and Michael and refuses to give me any information on them. She has been in trouble for black marketing babies and decided that I did not deserve my kids, so she sold them to the highest bidder. Please if there is anyone that could help me please contact me on Facebook Sabrina Dillion. I have never forgotten them and it hurts to know that I have to wait for them to turn 18 or if I am lucky before then, I do not want to cry anymore because I miss them very much. #15
