I'm sorry to post this here, but maybe someone can help. I think I posted this here at one time but deleted it. I'm going to go ahead and let it stand this time.

Someone close to me found out recently that she was adopted. It has been very difficult for her and we'd like to find the biological parents. She was born in Mills Hospital in San Mateo. I know there are a lot of Californians on here. Maybe one or more could help us. I feel like I'm among friends here so I don't feel too stupid posting this here.

Adoption papers are gone. Is it hard to through the red tape to find out the biological parents? Did they post births in the papers out there in the late '60s. Was thinking I could have someone hit the microfilm and find out the name given by the biological parents and go from there. I would be most grateful for any help or advice.
