Lake Bluff?

I too was placed in Lake Bluff Children's Home. Birth date 1-22-57
If Lake Bluff no longer exists how are we suppose to find our birth mothers or birth families? I looked into the Park Ridge agency and came up with nothing on the internet. I wrote to Lake Bluff 22 years ago and got some confusing information about my birth mother. Wanted to try to have it all cleared up for me. Just searching for some answers about myself. Want medical info, cultural info, so on.

hello Lake Bluff "babies"!

How many of you who were adopted from Lake Bluff ever ask for Non-id information? I did 23 years ago and a lot of the information they sent me was very confusing. I heard that they have improved over the years. Is this true? Has anyone asked lately? I just did again and I sure hope I'm not disappointed like I was in the past.

Lake Bluff

I was also adopted through Lake Bluff. It might be that you were born at Cook County General Hospital in Chicago.

Lake Bluff became ChildServ. I don't have their number on hand, but you can find it on the internet

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I am back to work now and don't have as much time to search as I did in the summer time. I did finally find an address for Child Serv and I am now waiting for a non id. Sure is hard waiting though. It has been a while. Sure hope they didn't forget me or hope my paper work hasn't been replaced. I am at a stand still because I don't know what else to do. Tomorrow I will be sending out my medical exchange papers, so maybe something will come up with that. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

another Lake Bluff baby

Hi all. I just found this site.
I too am a Lake Bluff baby, adopted 8/60. My birth name was Watson. I've finally worked up the nerve to start looking for my birth parents. Any suggestions?

Julie

Lake Bluff/Illinois Adoption Registry

I received non-identifying information from Lake Bluff (Child Serv) a few years ago that wasn't really helpful, so I recently sent in the forms for that adoption registry thing. I was told that they match people up by names, so I'm wondering since I don't have a clue about any of my biological family's names, how they could match me up. Is there a way to somehow obtain these biological names? Thanks for your help in advance.

Thumbs up

Add me to the list of Lake Bluff Kids!
I was born at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, IL on 11/5/64.
I received non-id info apx 15 years ago from Child Serv, and just received new non-id info from IARMIE a couple weeks ago, which gave me the hospital name.
I was under the impression that LBCH was the main agency that handled the adoptions.
I also have adopted brothers that came through LBCH, so I guess you could say our whole family started there!

Question Cook Couty Hospital?

Hi Susan,
Do you have any idea on how to get your records from Cook County Hospital? I have been trying for years and no one will get back to me from that hospital. I had a son there on March 25, 1969 and I think I may have found him, but still trying to prove it.
Anything you can tell me would be helpful.
Thanks!

Sue

Question

Since it's been awhile since I wrote to LBCH/CS, does anyone have a cuttent address/link to them?
I'm curious to see if they would send the same information now that I received additional information from IARMIE.
Thanks!

I was also adopted through Lake Bluff. It's now called ChildServ.

Here is their website
http://www.childserv.org/

And the information for their administrative offices, which is who I assume you're supposed to contact for non-id info.

Administrative Office
8765 W. Higgins Road
Suite 450
Chicago, IL 60631
Phone: (773) 693-0300
Fax: (773) 693-0322

I received my non-id about 15 years ago, then lost it in during a move. I'm going to be calling them this morning to ask for the information again. Will update this post with additional information/instructions once I speak with them.
