Adoption Agencies in Atumwa, Johnson Co.

Hello everyone,
I wasn't sure how to spell that city, so I spelled it like it sounded. Anyway, if anyone from that area would be so kind as to look up any adoption agencies in the area between 1930-1950. Maybe in the city directories. I am researching for a lady who was adopted as Shirley Runnings. She is trying to find out if her birth parents were Max and Dorothy Rutledge. She was adopted by Dorothy's niece and was raised as Mary. I can provide more details if anyone needs them. But basically, nowing that Iowa is a closed adoption state, we are trying other resources. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
