I always thought my adoption was through the Cradle. When I discovered that I was born at St. Vincent's, and that the Cradle has no record of me, I re-directed my search to Catholic Charities. Also learned that since my adoptive parents were Catholic it was unlikely that the Cradle would have been involved.
Sorry about ARMIE---it's Adoption Registry & Medical Information Exchange. Everyone I've contacted just says "ARMIE."
Not familiar with the ABC program you mentioned but will check it out. In the meantime, I expect to hear something from Catholic Charities in the next several weeks. Also, my adoption decree had no names--everything was redacted, as I expected. So the search continues.
