I know this is most likely a long shot but I am trying to help my dearest friend search for her birth mother. My friend was born on February 24, 1960 at Our Lady of Victory Infant Home in New York, Her name on her original birth certificate was Helena Pascarella. Her birth mother was in her early 20's at the time of birth.

I have learned that birth mothers frequently named their children after a close relative ( mother, father, grandparent)...

If you may happen to know of a Helena Pascarella or a young girl who was a Pascarella may have given a child up for adoption in 1960, please let me know...Thank you

Did a quick bing search and found this. Apparently, a Helen Pascarella lived on Jefferson Road in Rochester in the 1940's. Had a daughter named Gail.

Gail was born in 1939. Doing the math, this could possibly be her mother. Would be 21 in 1960. Hope this pans out. Good luck!

Our Lady of Victory is in Buffalo. Did a little more searching and found this:
A Geneva "Jean" Pascarella from Buffalo born in 1927 had a daughter named Mary Jo. Math also says that Mary Jo could be her mother. Here is a link to Geneva's obituary from 2013

Here is a link to Mary Jo's facebook page.
