HELP us find Navajo adoptee Christopher Largo

We received this urgent message from Tina. If you know an adoptee born on Nov. 12. 1973/4 - or on January 12, 1974 -- please contact me immediately. []

His mom is very ill and just had cancer surgery. She has made a major effort to try and find her son (my brother) recently. She put him up for adoption through the Navajo Nation Social Service. 

My brother was adopted through the Navajo Nation Social Service. What information I received from my mom is as follows: He was born November 12, 1973/1974 at the Gallup Indian Hospital or on January 12, 1974 in Gallup, New Mexico.  My mom, Betty Jean Largo, named her son Christopher Largo. He was immediately adopted as soon as he was born.  Since he was adopted out through the Navajo Nation and in his 40's there was nothing Navajo Social Services office could do. 
My mom said she thought she gave birth on November 12, 1973/1974 but her aunt said she gave birth on January 12, 1974.  Anyway, my mom said everything was a blur. The days after she adopted, she tried to get her baby back but social service told her she couldn't do that.

If he has non-identifying information, his mother was born in 1949 and was age 24 when she had him. Both parents are Navajo.
