Im looking for a brother who was adopted in 1965 fromn the booth home for unwed mothers. Please help us find him before ito late. Our mother was FORCED to give him up. She was 17 at the time of his birth. Her mother placed her in the home to hide her pregnacy then forced her to give the baby away. She is German born and had only been in the country a few years when she was raped by a man she baby sat for. Her mother didnt belive her and forced her into the home. His name at birth would have been Vailionis. His date of birth is November 7 1965.
I hope this may help you

I was born in Chicago in 1950. I recently received the "original" birth certificate which was supppose to tell me the names of my birth parents but I'm not buying it. My whole life I've had the instinctual feeling that my birth mother was also a young unwed girl who was forced to give me up. The "original" certificate says my birth mother was 46yrs old! I Can't believe that & have a hunch that the hospital used the name of the nurse & not my real mother. In researching that name on Ancestry.com it would appear I have no living relatives and am purposely being led down a deadend street, so I've turned to researching homes for unwed mothers & came across your writing. I plan to have a DNA analysis match done shortly & advise you to do the same. Go to the ancestry site & sign yourself up. Millions of people will be doing the same & together perhaps our searching will come to a peaceful conclusion. Good Luck! Sorry I can't help you further I just wanted to say I appreciate your post as I was unaware of the Booth Home. I don't know how you found your information but I will now try to get more info from the Chicago Salvation Army!
