My mother was placed in this orphanage when she was a baby. She was born in Iowa on October 8, 1926. Her mother's name is Dorothy Martin Heredia. Dorothy had an affair with a Polish soldier (name unknown) while married to Jesus Heredia. My mother was a product of that affair. She had two sisters and one brother who the legitimate children of Jesus and remained in the household. My mother grew up thinking her last name was Brooks and at the age of 16 was told by one of her sisters her last name was Heredia. I am at a dead end.
