You should contact New York Foundling

from their website

Foundling's Record Information Department serves any parent and any adoptive or foster parent, adoptees or foster care child who has ever been in the New York Foundling Hospital, including Orphan Train Riders. We honor genealogical requests. We act as a liaison between adoptees, parents and the NYS Adoption Registry. Information is provided to adoptees and foster children over the age of 18, or to parents of minors. Short-term individual, family, and group counseling is often available, especially around issues of search and reunion as well as the effects of adoption and foster care on the developing life cycle of a child and family. We respect the rules of confidentiality as well as current laws.

For further information, please call: 212-633-9300, ext. 6830
