Re: Adoptions in the US around the 1930s #dna #general

Even much later, in the 1950s, there were families who were anxious not to tell an adopted child that it wasn't theirs. A newspaper announcement seems a bit extreme, but they may have wanted to make sure the neighbours didn't spoil the illusion. I've known families move because an adoption was locally known.
