How can I find out whether my mother was adopted (officially) or fostered , or was she simply 'between the cracks'' ???

My mother was born Hellen Augst, in Spokane, Spokane County, Washington on 3 March 1916, to Herbert Augst and Hazel Ellen Thayer(nee Penisten). soon after, she was Fostered to Clarence and Miinnie Harris in Spokane Washington ???
She was later ''Adopted'' by Samuel A. and Minnie Littleton,and raised as MARY ANN LITTLETON, in Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon.

Looking for Descendants of Alexander Stinson Rogers(b;1804=VA-1875=MO) and his Siblings::

I am the family Genealogist for my Branch of the ROGERS family.
My Paternal Line is:: George Rogers(1777-VA); Alexander Stinson Rogers(1804-VA); Morgan Franklin Rogers(1849-MO);
Albert Huston Rogers(1872-MO); Ray Stinson Rogers(1903-Idaho);[SELF]Clarence Andrew Rogers(1941-WA).
I was born in Spokane, Washington on 07 Dec 1941. My father was born "ON" the Nez Perce Reservation in Idaho, near Greencreek, Idaho. He migrated to Washington State, where he worked on the Grand Coulee Dam as well as the Hanford Atomic Reservation.
My GG-Grandfather, Alexander Stinson Rogers, ws a Judge and Store-owner in Osage county, Missouri, during the Civil War.
His father, George Rogers, was apparently born in Virginia ABT 1777, and married(more than 1 spouse)Lucy Newman, who was the mother of all his children.
I have US Census documentation on George[1850-MO]an his family is also annotted in "Pioneer Settlers of Osage,Gasconade & Maries CO's Missouri, by H.M.Gentges(1999) ppg 107&108.
Alexander's family is also noted in King's "History of Maries County"(Missouri)circa 1933.

My father wed Mary Ann Littleton, nee Hellen Augst; who was born in Spokane, WA and raised in Portland, Oregon.
According to her, she was Fostered to a Clarence and Minnie Harris, than went to the family of Samuel and Minne Littleton, in Portland, where she was to be adopted, but the papers were never signed before Samuel died.
I consider ALL my work to be "IN-PROGRESS" and open to correction/update anytime I can get verifiable data.


My mother(Hellen Augst aka Mary Ann Littleton) was fostered to Clarence Harris, who supposedly wed a Minnie Spiger. Later, my mother was raised by a Samuel Albert Littleton who was wed to a Spiger?? Mom was born in Spokane, WA, but raised in Portland

Oregon, Somewhere between her birth in 1916 and the 1920 US Census of Portland,OR,
Mom went from Hellen Augst to Mary Ann Littleton.
