Well, I have my original birth certificate with my little footprints (cute) and the signatures of my parents, for the hospital in San Diego, CA. Then I also have a photocopy of the birth certificate after my name changed to Helmich. It is as if the original birth certificate was simply given away to the Helmichs as a souviner. The hospital record is officially the Helmich one. It states the adopting mother as the birthing mother, although this woman never birthed any children. Those were different times. Almost as if they wanted to cover up the tracks. I wonder if they all knew each other, but the Helmichs would not say so. I am intrigued by the idea, since Moravian Bretheren also had some history in Romania.--"Vicki"
