Thank you for the information you posted. It was interesting to me because I am looking for my father's adoption. I was just wondering when the Waverly home was in use? My father was born in Portland, Oregon on 1 December 1919 and was supposedly put up for adoption. Would Waverly have been open in 1920 and if not, do you have any suggestions as to where I can find out any details about my father's adoption like where he would have been placed after his birth? From what my mother has told me, my grandfather was away during WWI and when he returned home, my grandmother already had my father picked out for adoption. If you can offer any suggestions as to where to look, I would appreciate the suggestions.
