Missing Baby Girl Chicago 1907

Hi all! Do you have a grandmother or great grandmother born May 3, 1907? If so, she may be my great grandmother's missing baby. Susie M. Carey was born in St. Louis to my ggm, Gertrude Basham, who was 16 and had been abandoned by her husband. My ggm moved to Chicago, and tried to raise Susie, but ended up putting her in foster care while she got on her feet - when she went back to get Susie, some time around 1908 or 1909, she was told the child had been adopted by someone else. She never saw her again and took this secret to her grave - little Susie may not have even known she was adopted. But if your ancestor or family member was born 5/3/07, and has ties to either Missouri or the Chicago area, we need to talk!
