Help Needed ASAP

A new born girl was born at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland during the month of June 1960. The name of the mother is unknown to the child, she was raised by her birth father and his family. The mother had five children before this little girl was born and was on assistance from the state (I guess welfare).The little girl that was born then is now 47 years old. Her Aunt on her father side just told her that her father told her that her mother gave her to her father at the hospital and he had her ever since that day. She know that this is true because they use to visit her and her father when she was a new born. The mother had to give the little girl to the father because if she didn't her assistance would have been cut off. Well the father died without ever telling the child what her mother's name was. Now this woman has been living with out a birth certificate all her life, but she does have a SSI number. This woman would love to know what she can do to at least know the name of her birth mother. This woman is haveing a hard time because she was not adopted. She has checked with John Hopkins Hospital but has failed because she doesn't know the name of her birth mother. John hopkins has stated that they have no records of her birth. This could only mean that the mother did not put the father's name on any documents regarding this matter. This woman has prayed to God Almighty for help
to put closure on this matter. The mother and father was not married at this time. Oral history in the family on the father side is that the mother was very light skined ( could pass for white) and the father was a very dark African American (the little girl is a light brown African American). Who owned a three story home in the city of Baltimore Maryland. You could stand in his front yard and look up the road and see the hospital(John Hopkins). But nobody can remember the name of the street. At about the age of 8 to 9 months old this little girl grandmother came to Baltimore to get the child because the father ran into hard times.He lost his job, his house, and his car. Then he became sick and disable and moved to his mother and his daughter and sisters and they all did the best they could to rise this little girl. Now the girl is grown and their's only one member on her father's side living and what I mentioned above is what she knew about this matter.
God I pray this prayer: That if there is anyone out there that can help the woman find out who her mother is or how she can find out who she is; Please help her. This will be an answered prayer after 40-some years. This girl didn't have an easy life but she's making it the best she can with God's help.
Thank you all for reading this message maybe their is someone who can help.
God Bless
