Hello All, This is my first time here so be gentle. I have recently found out that I have/had a brother who was "surrendered" to the State of California (probably San Diego). I have very little details except that he became "unmanageable" by my parents and the gave him up. My mother has passed away and I am not on speaking terms with our abusive father (one of the reasons I suspect my brother became unmanageable). I know birth year, birth place, and then the bit about surrendering him in CA. My father was in the military, so not sure if it was a state hospital or "facility". Any ideas on where to start, I am honetsly sick over this and desperate to find answers. I don't know if my brother truly had issues, but coming from an abusive home, I have no reason to believe he didn't. He was ten or eleven when they dropped him off. I was barely one or maybe not even born yet.
