13-13 Adams-Handy Good evening, I am attempting to make contact with my brother who was put up for adoption at his birth. His name is John Ryan Adams-Handy and he grew up in Cool (was born I believe in Auburn) and resides in either Rocklin or Roseville to the best of my knowledge. I do not know whether he wishes to make contact with his biological family so if he is located I would like my name kept out of any queries that may go directly to him, unless of course he shows interest in which case obviously I am available for him to contact. If you require any further information I will gladly supply it assuming that it concerns something I know or have access to. Gracias! Adrian 11/23/13
