Baby girl Sparkman, born Jan 1 1958

A friend of mine was born to a girl in Richmond VA at 2:40AM 1-1-1958. She knows her birth mother's first name and her place of birth was Mercy Memorial Hospital.

Her adoptive parents, were married 1-11-1958. Her father was a beat cop at the time, in Richmond and knew the mother of the child. When the baby was six months old, he and his new bride adopted the little girl. She had an older brother who had asthma, not sure how many years older. He was adopted by other parents and because of his lung problems, the family moved to Arizona. After my friend was born in 1958, her birth mother had another baby some time later, and also gave this little girl up for adoption to a third family.

The name of the other two children are not know, but all were born in Richmond VA. A few years later her father became a Baptist minister and they moved to Gardengrove California. They lived in several states, last in Miller Co Missouri.

My friend's mother is very ill, and she does not want to ask her about the circumstances of her birth mother. Her father is in his 70's and very worried about her mother, so she does not want to ask him at this time.

She as asked me, knowing I am a genealogist, for help.

If anyone know the names of the two other siblings, a boy born about 1955-57 and a girl born about 1960 please contact me. My friend would very much like to know about her family medical history, heritage, and the names and locations of her siblings. And if her mother is interested in knowing about her life, she would be willing to correspond with anyone that knows the mother. It is unknown if the mother is still living. She would have been born about 1935, possible in VA or northern portion, ie Person or Bertie County NC.

It is not know if the birth mother married, or if she had other children after the first three.
