info on grandmother needed

I am looking for info on my paternal grandmother, Frances Rose Shanahan Parker who was adopted in NE at the age around 5 or 6. She was born in Belgium around 1916 and came to the US as an orphan. Apparently, she was adopted twice. The first from a family whose mother became ill and had to "return" her to the orphanage. WIlliam and Rose Shanahan then adopted her. They lived in Omaha, NE and Nebraska City, NE. Apparently, one of the orphanages burned down and her birth certificate was lost. I have heard she was in an orphanage out East and then came to the Midwest on an orphan train. If you have any info it would mean a great deal to me. Thank you!
