Finding My Birth Mother

Usually, a child will only be able to find a birth parent who wants to be found. Where can an adopted person look to find a birth parent. It can take time to find a birth parent if the caregiver has limited contact with the parent. You might find a birth parent but they don't want to meet you. This is done through advertising or networking with professional contacts, friends and family to find a birth parent. Therefore, sometimes adoptees are cautioned that they may find a birth parent either dead at an early age, in jail or any number of undesirable possibilities. Another thing to realize is that while you may have tended to view adoption as a positive, joyous event, it's important to appreciate the fact that for all your teen's gratitude, he/she may also feel that he/she has "lost" his "natural identity," and as a result, he/she may even begin to express a never-before-articulated desire to find a birth parent or parents. Perhaps they will experience rejection or find a birth parent who needs emotional or financial support they are not prepared to give. "Just because your son or daughter wants to find a birth parent doesn't mean you did something wrong. Supposing one could even get past this point to adopt a child or find a birth parent, there still remains a stark difference between the accepted procedures of such personal issues. If you decide to find a birth parent on your own and then find a suitable agency to set things up as opposed to going through the agency, this can cost you quite a bit less.

Adoption

While tracing your birth family don't be afraid to ask for counseling to help you work out your feelings during this time. Adoption records are automatically sealed until the adopted child reaches the age of 21.

Such information can be provided to the adoptive parents by the birth parents themselves, or by the agency or attorney handling the adoption.

Information

Birth parents can refuse to allow adoption information to be released, or they can file a Release of Information allowing the records to be opened when the child reaches adulthood. If you have searched the Internet and all the sources you can find and still have not found the information you are seeking, then it is time to purchase complete information resources.

Family

Psychologically speaking many adoptees, have issues and need therapy to deal with the grief and loss they feel at not having been able to grow up with their biological family. Even if they are happy with their place in their adoptive family, they may still be dealing with the effects of their early life experiences. " The researchers found that adoptees search for their birth family because of both a sociological and a biological need.

Conclusion

Many people wonder why anyone would want to find a birth parent that gave them away or abandoned them. But this emotional difficulty must be overcome, if one is to find a birth parent. Many of the stories both from adoptees who want to find a birth parent, and birth parents who want information about the child they surrendered, are heart-breaking while others are very joyfull. These people all had a real need to find a birth parent and I think it take a very strong person to start searching, but the rewards far outweigh the drawbacks in my opinion.Good luck in your journey!

If the person knows the place where he or she was born, or the name of the maternity nursing home, or the name of the agency that took care of the personís adoption, then the probability of finding the name of the birth parent increases highly. If this process becomes successful then searching biological parents become much easier.

Incase the adoption records are sealed and the process does not go well, then the other way would be to request and approach the state for non-identifying materials that may help in searching birth parent.
