Hi! I was born in Bucharest, Romania on August 29, 1997 at Caritas Hospital at 9 pm. I was born via C-Section at 6 months but sadly my mom unable to care for me, leaving me in intense care of the nurses. My mother used the name Ecaterina Popa and used the address 27 Panduri, Bucharest. I was told my mother had a child before me and she had kept him/her. I was named Mariana Popa by the nurses. I was placed in Orphanage 1 then taken into foster care by a loving family. In September of 1998 I was adopted by my current family and taken to the US. I live in Saint Louis, Missouri now with my adopted family. #2

I plan on traveling soon to Romania and would love to see if I can get in touch with them. If anyone can help me, please let me know and I would like to get in touch. I believe my birth mothers name was Ciobanu Catalin she was 16 at the time, I have some documents I could find for it. #6
