I got a shock today when I was told that after my grandmother passed away, along with the birth and death certificates for my aunt debbie, that we knew about, there was a birth certificate for a baby boy Paddack. The only parent listed on this birth certificate is my grandmother. Information is as follows
Name- Baby Boy Paddack Mother- Priscilla Paddack Born- December 14, 1955 Time- 3:12 PM Location- Sisters Hospital City- Waterville County- Kennebeck State- Maine
There is no death record, and there are hand and foot prints on the birth certificate. My grandparents were divorced and my grandmother had a boyfriend during this time. No one remembers his name, just that he died during their relationship. The family believes that she put the baby up for adoption because she was out of wedlock. Any info will help out a lot.
Maine has an Adoption Reunion Registry for situations like this. A "Full or half-sibling (age 18 or older) of an adopted person or person freed for adoption" can apply to be put on the registry. If the adopted person also applies, the state will notify both parties. Unfortunately, there is a $50 registration fee to apply.
