Additional Info
I received information about my adoption and my birth mother from Children's Home and Aid Society in 1992. I had to get a birth certificate from Illinois, but it only listed my adoptive parents. I just read that Illinois passed a law to open adoption records, so I am seeking a copy of my original birth certificate.
