  1. I am the biological son of Robert B Hays. I don't know if he even knew I ever existed. I was an "unplanned" pregnancy and placed for adoption. I was born in Sept of 1969. Anyone with any information about Robert B Hays please kindly contact me if you would. Just trying to figure out who I am. Thanks - Bob
