I was born 10/9/84 in Riverside Hospital Newport News Virginia. I was named Christopher Lee Sheffield. I was adopted near the end of 1986 to a great family and renamed Ronald McElhose. I was told when I was younger I spoke with an English accent. I am interested in locating my birth family to learn of my blood ties, family heritage and any health issues. Possible siblings, parents, grandparents? #5
