The legal consent of your mother's parents for transfer of custody probably involved some legal proceedings before a court of jurisdiction. Such a proceeding was probably handled in either the county superior court or perhaps the probate court. If no adoption was formally undertaken, then at the death of your grandmother, the disposition of her estate might have required either a petition for administration (no will) listing all of her heirs at law which would have included your mother, or a petition for probate (to prove a will) which also required listing to the court in such a petition all of the heirs at law, and again, your mother might have been listed.
You may also consider obtaining a copy of your mother's death certificate which normally would have listed her place of birth and parents and date and place of death, and where her remains were interred, which might be in a family cemetery among other relatives. Good luck to you.
You should also know that Allaire is one of the surnames under study as part of the "Canadian Anuism" study of those whose ancestors might include Jews expelled from Spain around 1642 who settled in France and were forced to become Christian. World Family DNA is now conducting that study.
