Baby Girl born July 17, 1973 at Lucy Lee Hospital and birthmom from Fisk. The adopted mom says she thought the birth name was RUSH but could be RUSHING. I posted on Fisk's page. Really needing some help. If you've ever dealt with Missouri Adoption you know how 'closed' it is. Thanks!

We only have a last name of RUSHING. Not much! She was told RUSH at first and now adopted mom says it could have been RUSHING. They think there were some older children already in family. Seems the only concrete facts are 'mom from Fisk and born at Lucy Lee'. Thanks for responding!!!

I went to high school with a Janice Rushing, between '79 and '83. She was from Fisk. I don't know if her mother had any kids in '73. Sorry if this doesn't help any.

Aren't there phone numbers for Rushing? Why does one have to get on a public forum to inquire? If Missouri adoptions are sealed, then this is why, so as not to bring disgrace or embarrassment to the birth mother or family.

Thanks for the info DiabeticAlien. We know the lawyer that handled the adoption from PB was Jasper Edmondson. O wise one I'm not trying to cause anybody disgrace or embarrassment. I would never do that but sometimes the birthmom is looking also and it would be very hard for her to get info. I HAVE called people in the phone book but people move away everyday. Didn't mean to offend you.

I don't mean to sound cruel, but maybe this person does not want to be found.

I know the family, and they are not hard to find. It just seems a shame to cause a lot of talk when it isn't necessary. That's what I meant.

Perhaps the person doesn't want to be found but what about the child that has no medical history and no roots? Thanks Spades. I will make that call. O wise one I don't know the family or anybody that lives in Fisk or PB. Didn't mean to start any gossip....just wanted to see if anybody could help me. Thanks everybody that has tried to be helpful. I'll say no more. Have a great evening.

Just from your attitude, it shows that you have no concern for the family to start this forum. There are several ways to contact someone without telling a (perhaps) dark secret on a public forum. True, a child does need to know medical history, but not this way.

Ok... first off let me start by saying that I am the one looking for my birth family. Mrs. Juda is only helping my out! I am a 36 year old mother of 3. My youngest son is 10 years old and was diagnosed with cancer in Aug. I have NO information on my birth family in regards to medical information. I have no clue whether this cancer runs in my blood, if I should be worried about my other kids getting it also!

O wise one... how can to you speak of disgrace... have you been an adopted child??? Have you spent your entire life wondering where you came from??? Wondering what was wrong with you that would make you un-wanted??? I had my 1st child when I was 17. My mother begged me to give her up... there was no way I could do to her what was done to me. So that she could spend her whole life wondering! I understand that there are lots of reason why people are unable to keep their kids, but I understnad more what it's like to be one of those "given-up" kids. You are by far the rudest person I've ever seen post. Why did you even post to this if you were going to be nothing but rude??

Thanks so much to all the other of you that have given information!

OO and also.. when is a child considered a "Dark Secret"??? it's not my fault that I was put on this earth... and I can only make the best of what was given to me by the good Lord!

These are modern days and times and if one wants to find anything the best place to look is the internet!

First of all, I'm not concerned about you, just the family that I kinow. You didn't have to put your business on here like you did. You can find someone without doing that. As for a child being a "dark secret," why do you think adoptions are sealed. People don't want others to know they have put a child up for adoption. Well, most don't. I will tell you this, I have known the Rushing family for a lot of years, and I don't know of any adoptions. Yet, people are talking now, I can assure you. That's all I have to say on the matter. As for rude, read your own post.

When I was in elementary school at Fisk, there was a boy named Clinton Rush who rode my bus. This was in about 75 or 76. He lived east of Fisk on the other side of a ditch. I think he had several older brothers and sisters.
I hope this helps. I also hope that the birth mother wants to be found.

lol. You're a piece of sh*t. Hope you feel better about yourself since you found out her child has cancer and all she needs is a little information. Why do you feel the need to be the self appointed protector of this family? You truly make me sick.

I was adopted and I see through all this. If she cared about her birth mother, would she make a public spectacle of the family? You don't do this to someone you care for. Every family has something "in their blood," and doing this to someone won't stop it. I'm in my sixties, and I've made it without knowing these things, and I know who my birth family is too. I've yet to do anything like this to them. What if she digs up something that is best left buried? If she is who she says she is at all. Maybe you would like someone putting you and your families lives on Topix.

Just want you to know... "not stupid" If i could take these postings off here i would. i emailed the lady that posted them this morning and asked her to remove them.

As for living without information... I've also done this for the last 36 years. My doctor was the one that suggested I try and find my family history because of the kind of cancer that it is.

I'm not trying to hurt anyone or bring out anyone's "dirty laundry" I WANT TO HLEP MY KIDS!!!

I can't even believe all this!!!
