Dear Brian,
I know you wrote this a really long time ago and I don't even have any helpful information.
The only thing I guess I should say is I'm pretty sure your mom is still alive- (the LDS church) compiles extensive documents on everyone, as long as the people are deceased and your mom does NOT come up. Unless she was born in 1924, which would have made her 45 when you were born, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's not the same Reina Mora (by contrast, my grandmother, who was born in 1922 and who only died in 2007, is already on there).
Also, you have a hospital- by any chance were you baptized in a Catholic church and are there baptismal records? I ask because priests in CR have a lot of sway and literally walk into government buildings and get whatever info they want. At least, they did back in the late 80s/90s when my dad found his Costa Rican birth family. If you have this info I suggest contacting that parish and that priest and having him look up that info :)
Do you speak Spanish and do you know the name of the adoption agency?
Don't give up hope. I have to admit, your comment "Does anyone know who I am other than this?" wrenched my gut, because it's how I feel a lot in all this family search stuff. You are who you are, family aside. I know that doesn't help much, but I hope it helps a little.
Pura Vida,
