Adoption Search and Reunion Guide for Young Adults
People have different reasons for beginning the birth family search process. An adopted person may wish to locate a birth mother or father, a sibling, or other relative. Some common reasons for beginning a search may include:
To access medical history
To find out about one’s ethnic history
To get answers to questions about one’s birth, childhood, or why you were placed for adoption
To seek a personal relationship with one’s birth relatives
The Adoption Search and Reunion Guide for Young Adults serves as a “how to” guide for those who want to engage in the search process.
