looking for 2 adopted siblings from Chicago but don't know how to start..Help
My mother passed away a year ago, and during that time my family and I found out that she gave up two children for adoption. My problem is that I don't know what agency, dob or even the sex of the children. I don't know where to even start to look. If anyone can get me started I would greatly appreciate the information!

Contact the Illinois Adoption Registry at 877-323-5299. If they do not answer be sure to listen to the whole recording and leave your name and a call back number. The manager (Vicki) is really good at explaining what some of your options are even though you do not have a date of birth or sex of the siblings. Be sure to tell her that your mother is deceased and you would be a birth sibling to the adopted children. Good Luck

I actually do not know the birth years of my two adopted siblings. I am guessing that one is 1960-1961 and the other is 1964-1965. I am also guessing that the first and maybe the second was adopted through Catholic Charities. On your birth certificate does it give your biological mother's name? or DOB? I do not know who the birth father is, and unfortunately both birth fathers are different for the two siblings that I am looking for.

I'm so sorry, but that is not my mother's name and her YOB is 1943. I think she was about 17-18 when she gave birth to my first adopted sibling. If you have the time, I would look into the Illinois registry. (look at the above thread for the contact information) I think they can really help. Good Luck!
