My husband was born 03/04/1987 he is 28 years old. His mother had relations with a man named Cleveland Hall who should be a little over 50 now. He was in the military and was stationed in NY when they met. He was married at the time which led my mother in law to leav him. His mom is from the Virgin Islands but has lived in Newburgh NY for years which is where my husband was born. My husbands name is Jermaine and his moms name is Sandra... Cleveland knew Sandra's brother Perry who was also in the military...Please help me find Mr. Clevelnd hall for my husband. #2

My husband was born 29 May 1967 in Mansfield, Ohio....he is such a wonderful man. His adoptive parents are still alive, he really doesnt want to search for his biological parents while they are still around. I am so very curious about his background, he is so unlike his adoptive family, I want to know where he truly gets his beautiful heart and soul from. Its not that I want anything, I guess I just want to know about his birth family, if he has any siblings, and medical history. He was only told that diabetes runs in his family. Hes about to turn 47 next month, I want to make sure hes so healthy so that we can live to be 100 years young together! Hoping to hear something....♥ his loving wife. #3

Birth mom searching for daughter born March 7, 1972 in West Penn Hospital Pittsburgh but placed by Catholic Charities Steubenville,Ohio. My daughter was 8 lbs10 oz. She was likely placed in the Steubenville area. I named her Kirsten but I am sure her parents changed that name. Her birth father nor my parents would help me and I felt trapped to place her. I had no money. I have never stopped thinking of her . #7
