ISO mother's birth parents/relatives - 3 months ago
my mother was born on 1/03/1957 at Providence Hospital in Wash., DC. She was adopted at 3 mths by Lubie and Ruth Faison of N.E. Wash., DC. This happened by a young mother who came by a S.E. Hair Salon and met Ruth's sister (Annette Jackson) with a young boy and girl with a 2/3 month old baby girl (my mother) stating she couldn't keep the baby because her and her husband couldn't afford anymore children. My mother was given the name Sharon Theresa (Faison) . Please contact me via email: xxxx. We just completed a genetic DNA test through Ancestry which the results should be in any day now. God bless #1
