Looking for brother Matthew

My mother gave birth to a boy in Pennsylvania, probably Hershey or Harrisburg and in the late 80s. His birth name was Matthew and at the time it was an open adoption. I heard he was adopted and his family now lives somewhere in the New England area. If this sounds like you, please let me know.

Exclamation Could this be the Matthew you're looking for?

Hello. I read your information and I can't help but think you maybe talking about my friend Matthew Clayton. He was born April 2, 1987 & grew up in Derry/Blairsville, PA areas. He was placed for adoption by his mom & raised by his paternal aunt and paternal grandmother. He is mixed- his father is black. If this sounds like the Matthew you are looking for, please don't hesitate to respond.

Thank you

Hi Pennbeth,

Don't know if it will help but the adoption laws in PA are now more open.

If you contact the Clerk of the Adoption court where the adoption was finalized they will tell you how to get the information you may want. The clerk of the court will not give legal advice.

I wish you the best.

My brother, I'm told, was blonde haired and blue eyed. His father was also blonde haired. I'm sorry, but good luck to him.
