Hi, I am Michelle Flaherty Agosto. I know it has been many years since you made a post on Ancestry.com looking for a child given up for adoption but I was wondering if you ever found anything out? I have been looking for my fathers birth family for many years he to did before he passed away in 2010. I promised I would continue the search. My grandmother took everything to her grave. She would tell him nothing. My dad was born in the Oakland area on Sept 29 1945 and was adopted out of Sacramento by Lillian and Patrick Duffy and given the name Michael John Duffy. We don't even know if he had another name before the adoption, he was a newborn. That is the only info we have. Patrick died when my father was only 1 year old. My grandma remarried and gave my dad her husbands last name without being adopted. I guess that was legal back then . So my dads name became Michael Flaherty.
