So I was thinking that this was such a large community that MAYBE I should try to see if anyone on here would know a Donna Jean Kretz?
She would be older maybe about 76 years old or so, living in the Illinois area, specifically in the 1950’s. Peoria to be exact.
Maybe she is someones grandmother or great aunt? If so we would be related because she gave my father up for adoption in 1952.
I realize her last name has probably changed since, and she might not even be alive anymore, but my father as been searching for his birth mother for a very long time and I am doing anything I can think of to help him.
It was not a closed adoption, she actually tried to keep him. Again, Donna Jean Kretz from Peoria Il, gave birth to a son in 1952. She wanted to name him William, but his adopted parents named him Paul.
If anyone has any ideas as to who this person is I would be so appreciative. They say we are only separated from anyone in the world by 6 people… so maybe this will help!
Also if you have any other ideas please let me know, although we have tried a bunch of different things, short of hiring a private investigator because they are so expensive.
