Looking for possible relatives. St. Mary's Infants Home from May 29, 1951 to August 8, 1952

I recently came across paperwork from St. Mary's Infants Home which, I believe, was associated with St. Joseph's. I was there from birth, May 29, 1951 to August 8, 1952 when I was adopted. My name was Mary Margaret and I was adopted by Robert and Julia Browne from Appleton. A notation on the certificate of baptism stated, "Adopted Child See G.B.D.A. File #3401 C.P." I don't know what the file number refers to.
After the adoption we moved to Madison, WI where I was raised. I was told that my birth father was in the Korean war and that my birth mother was unable to care for me. I don't know anything else about my birth parents or even if that information is correct. There may be no family left but I would be interested in finding out.
