  • Other Information Searching for birth parent/s, or any relatives. I was born on or about July 10th 1967...maybe July 8th some confusion on my birthday so maybe even earlier, St Johns hospital in Fargo ND. After doing my DNA it is no doubt my BF family is Irish and some on my BM side too (appears to "maybe" immigrants from the Castlebar area of Ireland,I know I have ties to this area) . I have some last names of 3rd and 4th cousins but I am just trying to piece it together, very confusing. I was given up just 5 days later. My adoption was handled via Catholic Charities (Maybe out of Crookston MN or Fargo ND) and was finalized very quickly I think in Park Rapids MN. When I was born I had red hair with blue eyes, since then my hair changed to blonde. I was told my birth mom was very young (UPDATE!!!!: BM was most likely only 15, I was born on a Saturday, the Agency called my adopted parents that Monday, and they picked me up Wednesday, they said my BM was already gone) and stayed at a half way house (either in Moorhead MN or Fargo ND not sure which UPDATE: sounds like maybe my BM stayed at the Florence Crittenton Home (now Luther Hall) in Fargo, but not 100% on this). DNA results show my BF was Irish and BM was Northern European (UK, Swiss, Germany). Social Workers name was Andrew Vanyo. He worked at Catholic Charities in Red Lake Falls. My adoption "was" handled via Catholic Charities of Minnesota (Crookston/Red Lake Falls MN, I guess this is a joint office). The home in Fargo was not Luther Hall in 1967, it was instead called The Florance Crittenton Home of Mercy. All legal paper work and proceedings were handled in the Park Rapids Court House of Hubbard County, MN. Just searching forever with no luck. Just looking I am not angry, I would love to see and learn about my birth family. I have been looking for years with one dead end after another. So I keep trying all avenues. Thanks!
