Thanks for your response. I was born, according to the records that I have, on May 20, 1958, at 8:40 p.m. I was 21 and 1/2 inches long and 8 lb 9 oz. My adoption decree says my name was Deborah Ann Bale. I do not know if that was my mother's last name or my father's. Every time I try to get info somebody wants more money or I hit a brick wall and can get no more info. Anything you can give me in the way of info I would appreciate. How did you find out that your mom had a baby in St. Vincent's. Can you get any info from them? Have you tried? How old was your mom when she had the baby? My mother was supposedly 15. My family heritage is supposedly Italian, Irish, and possibly American Indian. I hope this info helps us both. Feel free to e-mail me at Josie381@aol.com
