Where's my mommy? (and daddy, too)

I not-too-recently discovered adoption papers listing my real mother's name and my birth name. I was born John Benn on February 3rd, 1952. My birth mother's name is Helen Benn. I was adopted from St. Vincent's Orphanage in Chicago, IL. I believe it was through The Catholic Charities (sp?) organization located in the Chicagoland area. My adoptive parents once said that my birth father was a doctor who was killed in an accident, although this may have been a story fabricated to placate my curiosity. I would appreciate any information related (no pun intended) to my situation. Thank you
