Birth Parents Looking For Adopted Children

Birth parents looking for adopted children have a few search and reunion options. If the birth mother placed the child with the help of an agency, she can return to the agency and ask if they have post-adoption services that help reconnect birth parents looking for adopted children. Some states, however, require birth parents to register with the state registry, which keeps track of all members of adoption parties searching for one another. State registries usually run on mutual consent, meaning that as soon as two parties register in search of the other they will be given basic contact info for the other or will be given access to an adoption record with the purpose of searching.

Birth parents can also attempt to reach an adopted child through the help of a private investigator. However, many details relevant to the child's new lifestyle and identity will be difficult to locate because a new birth certificate is issued to the child during the adoption finalization process.

It's also possible to petition the court for a confidential intermediary to access the adoption records and facilitate a search and communication between birth parents looking for adopted children. Birth parents can also register with an online database that allows searchers to manually look through other registrants. Some online databases and search services may cost money. Be sure to research the integrity of these businesses with the Better Business Bureau before investing in something that will financially and emotionally drain you.

I am searching for my biological parents. I was born on September 29, 1980 at Hillcrest Hospital in Cleveland, OH. I was informed my birth mother was around 16-17 years old and my birth father was around 17-18 years old at the time. I was also informed I my birth mother was on the fence and then finally decided it was best to give me up for adoption which was finalized in December of 1980. The adoption took place with Catholic Charities. #5

Im looking for my biological family. Born in 2001 and im now 13 and live with a wonderful family, tho i'd still want to find them. I was both in China, Shangsha. Found by the police station, alone. I was about 2 weeks they said. I celebrate my Birthday on the 28 June, tho im not sure if thats the day i was born. I was later given to the adoption center in Beijin. There i was given the name Yao Guee Xiang. I find it quite impossible to find my mom, because she ran away without leaving a single clue... But i hope some day i,ll be able to talk to her. I now live in Norway. #6

My 20 year old daughter was adopted from Colombia in 1993. Her birth mother was 13 or 14 years old. My daughter is busy in college now but really wants to find out about her roots, medical history etc. She was in Casa de Maria Y El Nino in Medellin and from what I understand, her biological grandmother brought her daughter from Southern Colombia to Medellin. My daughter would love to know more. Her birthname was Gloria Gomez date of birth 7-22-93 and was just, and still is, beautiful!!! I have two older sons also adopted from Casa de Maria, but not sure they have the interest my daughter does, But their names were Ricardo Mejia, born 11-12-90 and Santiago Calderon born 12-1-91. thanks #7
