I'm searching for my niece and nephew that were adopted by a Manhattan, NY couple... Jordan Savanna Lee (niece) was 4 (almost 5) (DOB: 7/26/97) and Zachary Frederick Austin (nephew) was 3 (DOB: 1/2/99) the time of adoption (the first week of March 2002). Their last name at birth was Evans, born in Cape Girardeau, MO to Michael Eugene Evans, Jr.(DOB: 2/28/78) and Sylvia Jean 'Jeanie'(Ward) Evans (DOB: 8/2/79). Both had blonde hair and blue eyes. Zachary has a scar on his abdomen from surgery for Pyloric Stenosis when he was an infant. We believe they were adopted by a John (architect) and Johanna (freelance photographer) in Manhattan, NY. The adoption took place through a lawyer in Arkansas. We know they were placed in private school once in NY after being adopted. The adoption happened in Rogers, Arkansas (Benton County), the adoption firm was Kelly Law Firm and the lawyer was Eugene Kelly.
Looking for any and all leads possible! And if either of them see this, Squirt and Lil Man, your Aunt, birth mom, grandparents and cousins miss you like crazy!! We love you!!!

I can't be positive, but "John" sounds a lot like my friend George, who is an architect.

Was "John" a short, stocky, slow-witted, bald man who tended to do the complete opposite of what his instincts told him?

I've ALWAYS loved and missed them! But, as you can read (or maybe not) I'm their AUNT, therefore cannot legally do anything as far as a search! However, in the state of NY an adoptee can begin their own search for their birth family at 16... so yes, when it got close to Jordan's 16th birthday I started posting this EVERYWHERE I could find that comes up when a search is done for 'Adoption Reunions'... there's NO DOUBT in my mind that if she has decided to start a search that she will come across my postings and have NO DOUBT that we are also looking for them! Everyone has hit deadends in the search so I decided to try this route!

So, as I said earlier, if you can't be serious there is no need to post or be an ass hat!!

No need to be a douchebag!
I have ALWAYS loved and missed them! But, as you can read (or maybe not) I am their Aunt and cannot get answers in any conventional method of searching! Everything so far has ended in hitting a brick wall so I thought I would try this!
To many adoptees start a search and are discouraged because they are the only ones searching and their birth families aren't searching for them. I posted the original post because I have NO DOUBT that if Jordan does come across one of the MANY posts out there then with the info I have in them she will say, with no doubt of her own, wow, that's us she's talking about!
I have been praying and hoping that with her turning 16 that she has started her own search!

Yes, I can read. You say you (aunt) and her birth mom are searching. What has the birth mom done in all these years ????

I know she has tried as well, however, I am not 100% sure as she is no longer married to my brother and I don't have much contact with her... feel free to email me and I can explain more if you would like because there is a little more to it than what I can post here... [email protected]

Please do not give up hope. Eventually you will find them.

Try performing a search for 'popular teen media" and start circulating your plea in those circles.

Best Wishes!!!
