Ralph Vidal-Sandra Martinez

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who may know this family. I am trying to help a friend find her birth parents and medical history. Seems that some of this family may have come from Cuba.

Original birth name: Valerie Vidal
Born: July 30, 1971
Mother Maiden: Sandra Martinez
Father: Ralph Vidal
Hospital: Cook County
County of Birth: Cook County

At 4 months old I was taken away from my birth parents due to neglect by the Illinois Dept. of Children and Family Services http://www.childwelfare.com/illinois_Adoption.htm

I remember this date and I can't recall if it was a court date or the stamped date on the documents my mother gave me regarding my adoption: October 11, 1971
(I'm actually thinking that it was a court date relinquishing my birth parents rights.)

I was adopted at 18 months old
Some guy named Tony handled the adoption for my parents (I believe that he was from Bensenville because that's where my adopted parents lived.)
I think that this is the adoption agency: *Lifelink/Bensenville Home Society
331 South York Road
Bensenville, IL 60106
(630) 521-8262
World Wide Web: http://www.lifelink.org
E-mail: alladopt@lifelink.org

Adopted Mother: Sandra Lee (Barton) James
Adopted Father: William Robert James

From what I understand, my adoption records are sealed. I would love to at the very least make a plea to have certain medical histoy records released. I thought that the Bensonville Home Society had record of this information. If there is anything else you need from me I can try to help.

Thanks!!
