I was born June 13, 1955 at Fort Lewis Madigan Army hospital. I have found my birth mother but she has passed, and her name was Marianne Bayes, German. She gave me only a first name of Matthew. I have petitioned and received non identifying adoption information from Washington Children's Home society, my birth father's information is as follows: Hawaiian Chineese, athletic, and loved music, was in the military at least in 1955 in Washington state, but given the time date would say that Korean War. He also had thoughts of having his family or himself adopt me, but from what I can tell my BM would not sign papers to release me to him or his family. I was adopted by Ken and Tressa Jones final adoption was September 1956.
