Looking For Birth Mother

If you're looking for your birth mother as an adoptee, you have a few search options available to you after you're a legal adult. There are also other ways to go about looking for a birth mother.

One way to search, although it is a passive form of searching, is to find and register with one's state registry. The way these registries work is by mutual consent. If a birth mother and an adoptee both register, thereby giving their consent, to the release of the sealed adoption record, both parties will be notified. When an adoption record is unsealed, the adoptee will be able to access identifying information about his or her birth mother and, possibly, father.

More active ways of looking for a birth mother include turning to online databases, where people can independently register themselves and look through other registrants' profiles. Adoptees can also hire Search Angels, which is the title of volunteers who help connect adoptees looking for their birth mother, father, sibling or relative.

Hiring a private investigator is also an option as is petitioning the courts to allow a confidential intermediary to access an adoption record and facilitate communication between an adoptee and birth mother.

International adoptees looking for their birth mother are more likely to have a difficult time than domestic adoptees. There are, however, organizations and search groups that have experience conducting international searches.

Not all searches will yield a reunion or meeting between an adoptee and birth mother. However, you never know unless you try. Finding a support group to help with the emotional consequences of searching is suggested by most adoption professionals.

I am the birth mother that Sabrina is looking for. I have been searching for you ever since may 1992 when you were a forced adoption, I did not sign papers for you to be given up , I believe the legal aid lawyer copied my signature from when I had ti sign to get her to help me with the legal issues of me trying to keep you away from the vabeach social services,your step father and out of foster care and it did not work for us. I have never abandoned you even if this is what you have been told it is not true I pray for you every day and night. I used to have 3 different last names 1st one was the one I was born with was Townsley 2nd one was miller was my 1st marriage no children by this husband 2nd marriage was Schneider one child born of this marriage and now I am have the last name of my 3rd marriage, Irwin two children born of this marriage. Love forever your first mom Charlene Ann Irwin and I do have a facebook account #8

This might seem a bit late for me to be looking for my birth mother but I am 51 years old and I was adopted back in July 1962 and my adopted parents took me home in August. I would love to find my birth mother if she is alive still. I was born in Richmond Va at Retreat For the Sick Hospital. Not sure if that is what it was called back then. I don't even know what her name is. #12
