Performing a search for birth family is challenging. It requires patience, zeal, and a willingness to learn about new processes that can widen the possibility of finding birth relatives. Understand that our group is skilled at finding adoptee's birth family. We simply do not have the tools nor access to legally sealed records, to find the children relinquished to adoption for birth parents or their siblings. If you happen to be a birth parent or sibling of an adoptee, please check the State of birth for what access rights you might have or might be in legislation for change here.
When it comes to adoptees, we certainly do bring to the table an understanding about genetic genealogy, thorough first hand experience regarding DNA testing with third party companies, which enlightens us about your biological cousins. In one way or another all of our volunteers are touched by adoption and it deepens our dedication at building out the initial genealogy of your ancestors. Our perspective regarding these trials, triumphs, and tribulations are echoed in our founders' blog posts.
This website is a mirror to the tenacity required by all the search assistants, who have spent countless hours helping adoptees with their searches for their biological family. Moving forward is never easy, but with a lot of encouragement, shared sentiment from fellow adoptees, and your commitment to stay the course, anything is possible.
Find out about what we can to do help you get organized, prepare for your journey, suggest search methods, and most of all be patient. All our time with people is philanthropically based. We have a link for donations to help defray expenses related to the tools we will use while assisting you on your journey. However, it is certainly not a requirement.
Ready to take the next step? Perhaps your search has been a lonely one that has led from one dead end to the next. Help us help you on the next step you may have overlooked. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to a group or organization that can. Our goal is to help you to succeed.
