Possible name variation-Laporte. Chicago, IL. All I know is she was the youngest of 4-6 brothers. All very tall and asthma runs in the family. In her early 20's when the man whom impregnated her walked out, he was possibly a grad student. Family was very supportive of her during pregnancy and choice of adoption. Still seeking some medical history-I'm only getting older and have a family of my own One son-he's tall for his age! Any knowledge or this scenario sounds familur, please contact me.
