I'm looking fo a twin baby girl born in Marlin Tx, Nov 1957 . My Husband was born a twin. he was told that his twin sister died. One day I notice that on his birth certificate it said twins but it never stated that one of the twins was dead. My Husband said that the baby girl (twin) was born a blue baby . I also never seen a death record of a twin baby. His mother name was Sallie mae White, madden name Hopkins. The babies were born Nov 27 1957 Marlin Tx. Father name was Jospeh White that all I know of the father.

I've been researching my family history and I believe that my Great-Aunt may have kidnapped some twins from Pontiac, Michigan. All I know is that the children (a boy and a girl) were possibly taken by Ruth (Carew) Senior in the early 50's and she raised them as her own. The last location we know that she and her husband Isadore may have resided was somewhere down south maybe in Louisiana or Georgia. If I'm not mistaken she may have been involved in the church and viewed as an evangelist. If anyone as any information please contact me at email@example.com.

I'm hoping you can help me or know where I can turn for help. I'm searching for my twin sister born Oct 5 1957 in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Japan born Diana Lynn Crawford. We were separated right at birth, papers under the table so there is no way of tracing paperwork like a normal adoption.
My mother was single and was in no shape to raise more children so in hopes for the happiness of at least one child, she gave up Diana to an American Naval man with a Japanese wife. We were premature, I looked like a boy and Diana looked like a girl. My mother decided to keep me since it would be easier to find a girl that looks like her. It would be much harder to look for a girl that look like the father. She still loved him, even though he never came back to fulfill his promise of marriage. (BTW found our bio-father, 2 years ago).
Diana may not know that she was raised by total strangers. But I get a feeling somewhere she knows in her heart. I worry about her day and night. I get these feelings that is hard to explain. Before my mother told me about Diana, I used to think that there was something wrong with me, due to these strange feelings.
I was born Mary Ray Leona Fukunaga. Mother's name at the time was Michiko Fukunaga.
All I know about the adoptive father of Diana is that he also was in the Navy stationed there in Nagasaki Japan. Mom heard through the grapevine that he and his wife divorced and he kept Diana. She thought he was somehow connected to Hawaii or California. Too many "Diana L Crawfordís in those places. She probably is married by now.
Hope you gentlemen can steer me the right way. Thank you kindly.
I can be contacted firstname.lastname@example.org.

My name is Sarah and I am looking for my twin brothers, Richard Leroy and Phillip Eugene born February 1, 1981 in New Port Richey, Florida. I am the 7th child out of 9 and the twins are the 8th and 9th. We were all taken from our parents by DHR and put in foster homes. The twins were placed in an adoptive home immediately. I believe they lived in Florida for awhile and I lost touch with them. If anyone has any information, please let me know. The twins have 7 siblings very eager to know about their lives.

I just found out from my cousin that her mother my aunt had on my cousins birth certificate she had 2 other children born to her mother other than brother and sister that she lived with. When she ask her mother about the other 2 list on her B/certifcate she became up set she didn't know what she was talking about then she finally said she had miscarriage twin many yrs ago. Well I don't believe she miscarried I think they were born and put up for adoption and this would have been around 1954-1957 The twins were a girl and a boy born in Richmond,Va
My aunts last name at the time was Chapman
If you were born in Richmond and a twin e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks

I am 34 years old - born in 1972 (Ronceverte, West Virginia).
My mother had no one at the hospital with her during labor and for some reason, she was totally unconscious during the delivery.
She remembers coming to for two babies crying and being cared for.
She awoke 3 days later when her sister arrived from out-of-state.
The nurses told her one baby was stillborn and the other (me) was fine.
Being naive and semi-drugged, she believed what she had been told and took me home.
On the way to the car, she remembers a nurse being really apologetic to her. In retrospect, she believes the apologies were more than what they seemed at the time.
When I started grade school, the hospital and courthouse had no record of me ever being born, nor did they have any death record for my twin.
A birth certificate and social security was fabricated for me so that I could start school...no one ever found that to be odd.
I have spent 34 years with an undeniable void. I have been told by numerous psychics that she is still out there - even psychics who had no knowledge of the situation.
There are so many problems in starting a search. If she exists, she may not know she was adopted. Her parents might not even know that they adopted a child out of the black-market. I have no name, no proof that she was ever born or died. All I have is a gut instinct, and a mother who was too afraid to ask questions when the time was right.
The hospital has been shut down for many years, and my delivering doctor has since died. Any staff who may have information are terribly hard to locate.
So, I visited your site. Have you ever had someone contact you, who was born in 1972 (she may not even know her birth year)...or someone born in WV and adopted out (heck, she might not even know what state she was born in)....
Couldn't hurt to ask.
Thanks for listening.
II am searching for 3 of our siblings. I am originally from New Haven, CT, and myself and a twin brother were given up for aboption in 1961. My twin and I were brought back together at 13 months, and raised by two wonderful parents.
However, I have done a search over the past 20 years in hoping to find our other brothers, who were not given up for adoption. Our biological mother kept three children, and gave up three children.
I was the only girl out of all six children.
My twin brother and I are now 45 years old, and that would make our three unknown siblings in their 50's-60's.
I do know that our biological mother lives in East Haven Connecticut, and she has remarried over the years.
We did find out that our biological father has deceased.
Our adoption agency did make contact with our biological mother about 10 years ago, and she wanted nothing to do with a contact with us. Also, I would guess that our bio- mother is in her 80's by now.
I do feel that our unknown siblings do live in the New Haven, East Haven area ??
If any of this information sounds familiar, please contact me...
Your lost sister,

I am looking for my siblings who are twins (one boy, one girl) My mother never gave any information about the twins to any of us (there are 5 of us) Here is what I knowÖBorn in August of 1968 I believe, in Chicago. Given up for adoption, not sure if it was legal or not, to a couple with the last name Doyle. I think the womanís name was Gloria? Not sure of this but I think the first name of the girl was Marie and the boy Tommy. I think the birth names were John and Jennifer. Not sure about those first names. I think the couple that adopted them divorced later. At some point, perhaps they lived in Indiana. Birth mother was Lila Jane Gilfilan ( known by Sue or Susie) birth father is Richard John Zabonski (known by Zale) I donít know how to post this but would love to find them. I have looked for them forever and have never found a single clue. The twins are the only siblings that I have that are full blooded. I am half sister to all other children in my family. The twins have the same mother and father as I do. I would love to find them. Please, anything you can do to help.

Hello.. My name is Jennifer Langsford and I want to try to find my mother's twin brother but I am afraid I do not have enough information.
This is al I have:
They were born July 26th 1928 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. They were split up after their birth.
She has tried to find him at a catholic church but they told her the records were closed. Her adoptive parents apparently did not have any information on her birth parents. Seems impossible to me but I am keeping the faith.

You lived on 40th street in Milwaukee back in the early 70's, and for a while we went to the same schools. Then one day you were gone. So where did you go, Jean and Joan ? Can you believe I still wonder? I guess I'm still crazy after all these years.

I am searching for a set of twin boys, born sometime between 1960 and 1961 in Washington state somewhere near the West Coast. They would be my half-brothers. My father's name is Bill (William) Spaulding born March 26, 1923 in Havre, Montana. He played country-western music and sang in taverns in the evenings and on weekends. Probably holding down a regular job during the day as well. The story as related to me by my father is that he had met a woman he liked very much and they had lived together for awhile, when he found out she was pregnant he offered to marry her, but he says she was already spoken for, so he left. He met my mother shortly thereafter in Seattle and they were married in 1962. I did not find out any of this information until my parents divorced and my father told me about my brothers. My father was very vague about the information that he gave to me, I believe it was to protect the boys and their mother. My father passed away in 1997 and I would like to find my brothers.
I would appreciate any assistance you could give. My mother has tried to be helpful, but she doesn't remember much about it.

I was born November 24, 1943.. My name was Michael Count at birth. My birth mother gave me up for adoption just as she did my twin sisters, approximately 1-3 years before. I was born in Richmond Virginia, and give up to the Children's Home Society of Richmond VA for adoption. My mother was 27 years old at the time, so I figure she was born in 1916. It's believed she worked in Richmond in various clerical and retail jobs. She was said to be tall, with a slender, rugged build, sandy red hair, direct brown eyes, and high cheek bones.
I know that my twin sisters are registered with the State of Virginia, but naturally they will not release any information. I am pretty sure my birth mother is now dead. I'm hoping my sisters are still alive. I would love to meet them, before I die.

I Sharon Ann and Michele Denise Miller are my 1/2 sisters. They do not know me. I know of them through our birth mother who died in 1976. I have three brothers, Jimmy (who died in 1976) and Bobby and Richard.
I believe the twins were raised in Florida, but I am unsure of their Fathers Name at this time. My mothers name is Edith Werbitsky-Miller-Roy. I also heard that maybe the twins lived in Euagalie, Fl. for sometime. Their names may had been changed, and also they may had been told at the age of 7-8 that their mother was deceased. This would of been said to prevent them from looking for her. If you know anything about these girls, please contact me at
