Please Forward Me Everywhere!

Grannie Annie aka Anita Field aka Anita Walker Field

I am an adoptee. I need your help. I have been searching for any biological relatives since 1993 with no success I cannot find one single person, living or dead, who even
remotely resembles any name in my adoption file. My only hope now is for
someone, somewhere to recognize my birth story or see a resemblance in my face.
I need national, or international exposure. How else but the Internet to get
seen around the world fast? Please forward this blog freely to every person,
Email List, organization, blogsite, etc. that you can think of. You have my
grateful permission to send me around the world..

I was a gray market baby, bought and paid for, and I came with falsified
records. I have two different dates of birth. My place of birth, particularly,
is in doubt and that is why the federal government did not want to issue me a
passport. I may have been "shipped" to Chicago from a baby farm and then given
up for adoption. Or, my birth mother may have come to Chicago just to give
birth. She could have been housed in one of the illegal maternity homes which
were thriving right in the very same Chicago Uptown/Edgewater neighborhood where
both my adoptive parents and my birth mother resided.

Believe Me, Folks, I’ve Really Tried!

I have been continuously searching for my biological relatives since 1993 with
no success. But not for the want of trying.

I used the Illinois Confidential Intermediary System. Three different
court appointed social workers from Midwest Adoption Agency spent two years on
my case, only to ask for its dismissal after 2 years because they could not find
even one person, living or dead, who even remotely resembled any person named in
my adoption file.

I hired Christine Lee of Kinsolving Investigations. If she found anyone, I
was to pay her $2,900. After 6 months, Ms. Lee dismissed my case because she was
not successful in finding anyone. I still had my money - but no family.

I have hired many other private "searchers" along the way - a woman from
Lake County, Indiana, a gentleman from Kansas, and a searcher in Chicago.

I successfully petitioned the Circuit Court of Cook County and the IL
Dept. of Public Health. In my petition, I asked that all my adoption files as
well as my original birth certificate be turned over to me. In January 1997, I
received these documents. The "information" in my vital stats is from my original
birth certificate and the adoption file. I know there are omissions,
contradictions, half-truths, and lies in these documents but when your adoption
isn’t legal, what can you expect?!

Since 1994, I have continuously been active in online Internet Email Lists
for searching adoptees, as well as becoming a vocal advocate for adopted adults.
I have made numerous contacts all over the globe and have had wonderful people
from all over trying to help me. God bless them all, but we found no

I have put my name on every Adoption Registry and genealogy
messge board I can find. I’ve taken out personal ads in both newsapers and
magazines, but no one knows me.

I really need a miracle.
