Query Text:

I am searching for my husband's birth parents. Following is all the relevant information I have about his birth parents and his adoption, taken from correspondence and files. His birth name was Donald Wood (first and middle name). We think his last name, or the last name of either his birth mother or father was Allred. He was adopted five days after he was born in Bedford, VA. "The father of the child was about 6' 4" tall and weighs around 190 pounds. He is athletic and is of blond coloring. The mother has black hair and blue eyes. Both parents were in good health. This was the first child for the mother and both father and mother were in college and both comparatively young." The doctor who delivered my husband was William O. McCabe, Jr. The law offices of Rhodes and Jennings of Lynchburg, Virginia assisted with the adoption. This is from a letter from the law firm, dated Oct. 12, 1962, and signed by Howard Rhodes, Jr. , to the adoption department in Richmond: “I talked to the natural mother at some length about the proposed adoption and she stated that she was not in a position to keep and raise the child. None of her friends or relatives knew that she was pregnant and she certainly does not want them to find out about it at this stage. She felt that the future welfare of the child would be best served by placing the child out for adoption.
