Query: Thelma Hope Elliott, Marion County

            My mother, Thelma Hope Elliott was adopted in Indianapolis, IN on August 27, 1923. I have a copy from the City of Indianapolis Division of Public Health Record of Birth.  It was recorded in Volume 30 Certificate 4807.
            I am searching for her birth parents.  On the 1930 census it indicates that her mother was from IN and her father was from OH. How do I find out who her birth parents are?
            Also, the certificate was dated October 25, 1941, when she would have been 18.  So, I am wondering was the adoption finalized when she was 18.  Was it conditional till she was 18.
            Any answers or guidance would be appreciated. Many thanks.
