I am looking for any siblings I may have. I was born at Hazleton Memorial Hospital in 1979. My birth mother's name is Roxanne Rettzo. I was only able to ever locate my maternal grandfather's widow who said that she knows I have a set of twin siblings that she is aware of, but she doesn't have contact with my birth mother so there maybe more siblings out there she is not sure. #2

How does a mother get proof from an agency that lost my 1st letter ,now knows nothing about me .How does a mother know her adoptee was even contacted since she was only one in control of my case.A person cannot have a rule or law being soul supposed mediary as their is NO and Never will have Proof of me knowing he was contacted.I am still in the dark ,3 years because of this Childrens Home Society social worker,lied and said his occupation was a lawyer and his parente put him through law school.WHAT!!?? Wonder if her suvisor knows she has went to far,saying he said yes to contact-losing my 1st letter and I was not allowed to write another even though she XUPPOSEDLLY lost it .Something is very wrong.The searchers tell me shes back peddling .So she is what is holding us apart.If my son had spoken to me on a 3 way and said no contact then I would hav to respect his wishes and would always hold open my door anyway for him but he never said that nor spoke to me .Oh ,the social worker apolog #8

Hi Jason, I'm looking for my brother who was born on July 28th 1979 in Malden Mass. My mother delivered a baby boy at Malden Hospital in Malden Mass, however after the baby was delivered they said the baby had died and they never gave the baby's body back to my parents to bury and never gave them a birth or death certificate. When I contacted the hospital about her records there was no record of her even being a patient at the hospital. I'm wondering where did you grow up and was it in the Boston area? #16

I am trying to find my adoptive family, mainly for reasons relating to health conditions. My Dad was born in Surrey 0n 9th November 1954 to his parents having the surname 'Booth'. I'm aware one of his biological parents is now deceased but know nothing else of them. Dad was adopted out to a couple called 'Bob ( Robert? )and Milthred Freak' So a rather distinctive surname!!! I'm unsure 'where' he was adopted out to but he was raised mainly in Africa. Any information that may of be of even slight help would be really appreciated. #20
