Searching for Mothers biological family from Mason City, Iowa

Classification: Query
My mother was delivered by Dr Long in Mason City, Iowa on May 16, 1954. She was adopted by Chris and Betsie Kumnick. They also adopted a son who was born June 20, 1952 and was also delivered by Dr. Long.

My mother never knew any information about her biological parents. Unfortunately she passed away a few years ago so there is no chance to get her to do a DNA test. My grandfather passed away last year and never gave any information about the bio parents or adoption.

I do have a half sister from my mom, and we have both done DNA tests. These results do show common matches between us - meaning they are on our mother's side, but none the close matches has built a family tree and none of them have been on Ancestry for an extended period of time.

I would be grateful for any information anyone might have about a baby boy or baby girl born in Mason City who were subsequently placed for adoption.
