My father was given up for adoption by his birth mother Evelyn Carlson. He was born December 24, 1958 at 12:52am. We've tried just about everything to find out any genealogy or if anybody ever knew her, the birth father was listed as unknown. We've come to so many dead ends and it would be greatly appreciated if anybody knew her to give us some insite. He has no clue of any health problems that may run in the family and he's had his ups and downs with health problems and so have I. No idea when she was born. My dad has sandy blonde hair, blue eyes, 6'1". If anybody knows of an Evelyn Carlson that gave birth or lived in Des Moines Iowa Polk County it would be beyond appreciated if anybody had any information about family history or who she was. It would be great to know where we came from, what we have to look out for, and if there was any family left to meet them one day on their terms, if they don't want any contact we will respect their wishes. We just want to know something, who she was, health issues we may face, anything. It's hard not knowing where you came from, or who you are. I'm 21 I'm past the point of wanting to know why. I just want to know anything. I've watched my dad search and search for years and the devastation on his face when he couldn't find anything. I don't want him to hurt anymore, I want him to at least know something, anything. If somebody out there could help me...please...please do.
