Are you an adoptee born in Louisiana and searching for your birth parents? Or did you surrender a baby born in Louisiana during 1984-1995? If so, I can help you reunite with your family. I’ve reunited over 50 of these adoption cases in Louisiana. I helped one adoptee that was born during this time frame and uncovered hundreds more that were born during that time and location.
For birth mothers – did you answer an ad in the newspaper and were sent to Louisiana to give birth during 1984-2000? Did an attorney or doctor advise you to go to Louisiana to give birth? Did you give birth in Eunice, Mamou, Opelauous, Lafayette or Baton Rouge? A partial list of attorneys that assisted with the adoptions were Kent DeJean, Kenneth Pitre, A. Bruce Rozas, McGee, Manuel, Nina Broyles and H. Michael Aaron. A partial list of the hospitals used are Moosa, Savoy, and Woman’s Hospitals.
Most of the children were sent or adopted into families that lived on the East Coast. Some children remained in Louisiana, but the majority did not stay in Louisiana. The adoption laws were lax during that time in Louisiana, and this allowed pregnant women to be taken to Louisiana, give birth and then the children were sent to awaiting families.
** These adoptions were not illegal, the families and attorneys just used the loose adoption laws in Louisiana to get around waiting years on adoption lists in other states. Birth mothers needed help and families wanted babies.
We have a support group on Facebook entitled Gitelman Louisiana Adoption.
