Yesterday we were moving my grandmother and came across a piece of paper which had the information about an adoption that she had kept secret all these years. It says that a boy, John Michael, was born on 12/10/1953 at Boston Lying-In Hospital. She said the parents names were Derboghosian.
If anyone cn help me, I would be so greatful!

Oh and I forgot to say that her parents sent her to Florence Crittendon home for unwed mothers in Brighton Massachusetts.
Lisa did you find out your birthname yet?? If not email me at thusfeldt@yahoo.com I have the Ohio birth index that lists babies birthnames before adoption as well as there names after adoption. I am an adoption search angel so I do not charge ever.

I'm trying to get records from 1969 for the St. Pete FCH. Looking for information on my daughter given up for adoption. Memory is sketchy, but you can reply to my email also. Thanks.
All records are in the basement on index cards there. The home is now called Brookwood Home for Girls. The only way they can find name is by alias used. The index cards are not listed by dates or dob..only by mother's name she used in home. I would contact Pamela at Brookwood Home for girls and see what she can tell you. pjmesmer@brookwoodflorida.org or (727) 822-4789
If you are the mother, she will confirm DOB of child, weight and time of birth and agency used for adoption. and name you named the baby as well. But be advised sometimes they do change the name of child after adoption.

My BM was at this home in DC.in 1967. After the Freedom of Information act, she was able to have a sucessful search. I think she said she had to pay though. I wish I could add more information for you. Good luck!
