Looking for HELEN GUSTAFSON, born 1927 in Bradford, PA

I am trying to find information on my mother's youngest, biological sibling - Helen Gustafson, born around April 20, 1927 in Bradford, PA. Her biological parents were Carl and Agnes (Kennison) Gustafson. Agnes died from childbirth complications, and Carl died soon after from
tuberculosis. In 1927, the family was living in a rented house at 75 School Street, Bradford. After the deaths of Carl and Agnes, the younger children were sent to an orphanage home. It is believed that Helen was raised by a local family. One source told me that she was raised by a doctor's family, and that her name was changed to Nancy. Another source told me that she was raised by a family by the last name of Wadsworth. The other children in the Gustafson family were -- Everett Carl, Adeline, Thelma, Doris, Margaret (my mother), and Edith.

Even though my mother never knew what happened to Helen, she was able to be reunited with her other siblings. My mother is 81 years old, and she is now Helen's last surviving biological sibling. I have been searching for many years, and I would appreciate any help.
