I am looking for a adoptee baby girl ash or possibly robyn lyn ash.
Could also be a male we never saw the baby,
No name after the adoption was finalized.
Adopted out of childrens home society in des moines iowa.
She was born @ 12:30 pm on october 8, 1967. Birth mother was named Rose Ash and she was
only 14 years old. Rose was out of town visiting grandmother at the time so the baby was
born in clarion iowa, wright county, there was no press release. The hopsital was
Community Memorial, Robert Francsis McCool was the delivering doctor. The baby was
immediatly taken to the nursery and Rose never got to see, hear or touch the baby. Rose
was secured at all times from the nursery by her fathers orders. The baby was relesed to
Alice W Allen - social worker for the Childrens Home Sociey in Des Moines Iowa on October
11, 1967. The agency has since changed their name to:
1) Iowa Children's and Family Service
2) Children and Families of Iowa
Rose signed papers at the hospital to permit medical care and such on October 11, 1967,
and she Released her Baby to Children's Home Society on November 14th, 1967. It was
noterized in Linn County Iowa By an A. V. Kiddren? Linn County, Cedar Rapids, Iowa was her
residence at the time of the Birth and Adoption. Rose made first contact with the
Childrens Home Society on the May 12th 1969 at which time Alice W Allen ( case worker )
said that she was healthy, she had brown hair, brown eyes, and a medium complexion.
The Iowa Deparment of Public Health and released to me the county and date of
finalization, Chickasaw County, New Hampton Court House on May 22, 1969. I am the Daughter
in Law of Rose and I have been helping her searching for about 2 years. Each year we get a
little something extra but we would love to find her. This little girl has grown into a
women in the hands of a mother who was given a gift from rose and for that there is no way
to say thank you. After almost 35 years the answers are clear but now we just have to find
the right questions
