Re: “My birth certificate says I was born at the Roselia Hospital, but I can't find where it was. Can you tell me more about it?

Roselia closed in August of 1971. It now operates as a shelter for homeless men. I don't know of any other homes that might have operated in 1981. Maybe you could contact Catholic Charities to see if they know of other homes for unwed mothers that operated in 1981. Good luck with your quest.

Re: “My birth certificate says I was born at the Roselia Hospital, but I can't find where it was. Can you tell me more about it?

(continued) I put my baby girl up for adoption. A week before the adoption took place I learned that I would not be able to have anymore children due to an RH negative situation so I stopped the adoption. Best decision I ever made in my life. That baby girl grew up to become a Lt. Col. in the US Air Force, co-inventor and US Patent holder. Better yet...she thanks me all the time for keeping her.

Re: “My birth certificate says I was born at the Roselia Hospital, but I can't find where it was. Can you tell me more about it?

The home did not shut down in 1970. I was 17 years of age and a resident there and had my baby in May of 1971. Only the first floor was used to house unmarried pregnant young girls some as young as 14. My vocation during my 2 month stay was to work in the laundry roon which was required as I had no money. We were allowed to keep $5 a week from government funds we received.
