{Mother...You fill in the Hospital, & the time,) from MY, once; BRN.EYED, BRN HAIRED, NATURAL MOTHER w/100% American Native Indian Grand/Great/or/GreatGreatGrandMa."
This FACT has been told me since childhood....My adoptive folks have ALWAYS told me: "MY Natural Mother was Married & had Three(3) Older children, Reason for Adoption: "Pending Divorse."

I WAS THE COVER-BABY, "HOW TO ADOPT A BABY IN RHODE ISLAND" for the local NEWPORT (Journal?) /Middletown R.I. PAPER, (Mom) speculated that I have a Jewish Father, who EITHER REFUSED TO SIGN JUVENILE COURT PAPERS, or was not informed, or un-reached (?) either in time or not at all, and possibly not aware of my existance, then or now. I posess the Juvenile Court papers DATED FEB. 1959. By my friends and acquaintences, I have been "VOTED ITALIAN" because of my 'Talking Hands', and I have always been/ had a spicy-recipe waiting to happen, without ever having been raised that do you figure that? [DUE TO OB-GYN. GRAPHS: 9 MTS.BACKWRDS=I WAS PROBABLY CONCIEVED ON OR ABOUT HALLOWEEN, a "Great Love" Or perhaps due to TOO much of a happening-costume-party? Either is fine w/ME,REGARDLESS, I FEEL KINSHIP TO MOSES... WHERE... ARE... MY... PEOPLE(?)
