Are you a male who celebrated your 40th birthday last Friday? Were you adopted? If so, your six sisters are looking for you.
The birth name of the person they seek was Brian Donald Stevens although his name is probably different today. He was born on January 8, 1970, at Central Maine General Hospital in Lewiston, Maine, and briefly placed at the Holbrook Foster Home. His adoption was completed on April 1, 1971, in Bangor, Maine.
Seven children were born in the 1960s and 1970s to a southern Maine woman, the sisters said in recent interviews and e-mails. The seven children, who today range in age from 34 to 45, have six different biological fathers, none of whom was married to their mother, they said.
Because of abuse and neglect, the five oldest children — four girls and one boy — were surrendered to the state and subsequently adopted. The two youngest girls grew up with their birth mother.
Maine adoption secrecy laws changed a year ago. Now any adult adoptee has a legal right to look at their own birth and adoption records. Some of the six sisters did so and soon found each other. They have hed family reunions to become acquainted with the siblings they never knew. However, they have been unable to locate their one brother and have turned to the media for help.
