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'm looking for my birth mother, Alta Stark. I have two older half sisters, Debbie and Melissa. We were supposedly given up when I was just eight weeks old. Our birthmom was supposed to be very sick. We heard about seven years ago she might be alive. It's vital that I find her. I'm very sick, have been for last three years, the doctors have said to find out what we can so that we can try to figure out what's wrong with me. Please, if anyone knows anything that can help please let me know. #5

For medical reasons I would love to find out who my family is but he wants nothing to do with them because he feels they abandoned him. He was born October 7, 1969 in Shaker Heights, Ohio. He has black curly hair and brown eyes. Not sure if this is relevant but he was adopted by Patrick and Rosemary Carrigan and his name is Daniel William. Thank you. #14

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 #19
