Sorry 'bout that! What I did was email her post to my wife and she emailed a reply. I copied and pasted. But she sent the entire letter she had sent. I went through and put hyphens in place of the names. Should have done that better. Thanks!

No need to be sorry! We've all had posts end up that way, before discovering the advanced option.

Default Glenda Hopkins or Paul(Richard?) Moran

I was born in Maryland in 1967 on the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. I know I have two older (half?) siblings.I've found my brother, born in 1966, but can't find my oldest sib, which I've been told is a sister.She would have been born about 1965. My brother was also adopted, but by another family. His last name is Hamilton.

My adopted name is Hollandsworth, and Lynn Tanner was the attorney handling the adoption, I believe. My birth name may have been Marie. The last anyone had contact with Glenda, she was in the Atlanta, Georgia area around the early 1970's.

Mr.Moran's first name may have been Paul or Richard.He was in the service at the time of my birth. I'm not sure if he is my father, but if not, he may still have information that can help me.( Glenda's middle name, birthdate, family info...ANYTHING)

I only found out I was adopted a few years ago. Finding out has been pretty hard to deal with, I try to focus on my wonderful husband and children, but feel as if there is a huge hole and that I have been lied to my entire life.

I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions anyone may have!

Thanks!

Please e-mail me!My mother had a cousin named Glenda Marie who was adopted. She had a Brother named Billy who was also adopted. Their parents Glenn and Marie both died. This sounds very similar to your story. The cousin was born in aberdeen maryland

So I just post on as many message boards as I can and do alot of people searches. I think if I had her birthdate and her parents names,or even her brother's name,I'd be able to go alot further.
nevermind see below

We might be in luck, I think I've got her. I didn't have any luck with Georgia (it was long ago) and going on the premise that many who leave their state return for some bizarre reason, this is what I have.
