Hi Amy,

I just saw your post and noticed that it is from 2009, so I hope this message gets to you. I am an adoptee that was reunited with my birth parents 14 years ago. I found this site today because I just found out that my paternal grandmother was a Lovelady. I don't have specific information for you, but I did want to tell you about a program that is in about half of the States that helped me to find my birth parents. It's called the Confidential Intermediary Program. The State trains the "Confidential Intermediaries" (CIs for short), and they are allowed to look at records you can't. How it works is that you hire a CI in the State where you were born. The CI looks at the records and tracks down your birth parents and makes contact with them and asks them if they would be willing to have contact with you. I checked and Illinois has a CI program which they started in 1990. Here is the link to get you started: I remember searching and it can be so grueling; such a whirlwind of emotions. So I am glad to share anything that may be helpful. So, happy hunting and I pray your search will be fruitful!

God bless you,

Sandy Segal
