The above document on the left is probably the most significant document in confirming my origin. It contains the signature of both of my adoptive parents, Edmund F. & Alberta A. Grande and the signature of my birth mother, Norma Andrade, at the bottom of the page. It also contains my adoptive name, Stephen Francis Grande. It also contains my birth name, Brian William Andrade. Although that birth name has been blackened out, it can be read quite easily through the black ink on the actual paper.
