My mom was adopted in 1961 in California. The name on her birth certificate is Fivecoate. I've heard bits and pieces of stories through the years. I have reason to believe that her birth family lives in Indiana and that he birth mother was very young when she was born. It is possible that her family didn't even know she was pregnant at the time. Has anyone heard any stories like this in their family? I'm very interested to find out the truth.
