Additional Info
Our mother had 8 children. I am the oldest (Donna), Dennis, Richard “Ricky”, Barbara “Barbie”, Lisa, Gena, Hope & Tracy. I was 16 years old when my sister Hope Marian Pimentel was removed from the home with our other sister Tracy Lee Pimental around 1975-1976-1977 by child welfare. They were both maybe 2-3-4 years old. They were adopted by (I believe) a family with the last name Robinson. The man was a doctor from North Falmouth, MA (possibly a plastic surgeon, not sure). Unknown if their names were changed. I remember they cut their hair very short & soon after the adoption, both Hope & Tracy were moved to Maine, USA (possibly New Hampshire if not) with their new family. I have had no contact since that dreadful time and I have searched my whole life for them. There are 4 siblings (& tons of nieces & nephews) left praying to reconnect with our baby sisters, Hope & Tracy! (Our mother, Barbara, brother Dennis & sister Barbie have passed on).
