I am aware of an orphanage that was in or around Sarasota FL. It burned down years ago, I'm not sure what year. Apparently, "all" records were burned with it. I find that hard to believe since the courts have to approve the adoption and make it legal. I too am searching for someone from an orphanage in FL. My aunt. Her birth name was Elwanda Johnson, and her adoptive name is Wanda Jane Lytle. She was born around 1953. Good luck in your search. If I find out the name of the orphanage that burned down, I will let you know as well.
