Man Abandoned At Birth Searches For Parents

By Aaron Zeidman

A man who was abandoned at birth is conducting a search to find his real parents. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was left on the doorstep of a building on Lorretta Road, Far Rockaway in 1967.

The son of the former resident of the building, who also wishes to remain anonymous, said that it was his sister who found the baby on a February night.

"She was visiting with her father and heard what she thought were cats fighting outside. She found the baby bundled up on the doorstep. They called the police, and that was the end of it," he said.

The son believes that the baby may have been left there because it was a very well-lit building.

"The roads are different now, but at the time the location was the last exit off the freeway before Mott Avenue," he said. The son thinks that this may also have been a reason for abandoning the baby at the Loretta Road address.

The abandoned child was cared for first by an African-American foster mother and then adopted through a Jewish adoption agency. He had what he considers to be a normal upbringing, and he now works as a lawyer.

Any information regarding this man’s situation may be communicated to The Wave office.
