Hi Rose, Oregon State Archives has info about adoptions, see http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/adoption.html. However it looks like . . . well I'll let you read it and I won't speculate.

The Willamette Valley Gen. Soc. MAY have some info; see http://oregon.gov/OSL/GRES/genealogy.shtml.

I did find info on the adoptive parents. Howard Allender filled out his World War I Draft Reg. card June 5, 1917. He was living in Lincoln Co., MT. He was b. Calais, ME, 21 Sep 1888. He was a laborer at planing mill, Libby Lumber Co., Libby, MT. He was single, no dependents but claimed an exemption from the War because of "weak eyes". He was med. height & build with blue eyes & light brown hair.
