Adoption Records

– adoptionrecords.net –

Adoption records can contain a number of documents, which often include the original birth certificate. The courts can be petitioned to have adoption records opened but often, only censored or non-identifying information will be given if any information from the adoption record is given at all. Some states have passed bills, which require birthparents to leave contact information or detailed medical histories if they do not want future contact. Often a confidential intermediary, or someone who goes between the courts and the person inquiring about the records, is required to access any adoption records at all.

The article Access to Adoption Records goes into great depth as to what is considered non-identifying information, what various states policies are and how to access information.

Read the details of why adoptees should consider petitioning courts for their records as well as the details of petitioning, using the Indian Child Welfare Act in a petition for those who qualify and what else to expect when petitioning in the article Petitioning the Court to Open Your Adoption File.

My adoptive name is Marsha Jo Lemon-Daniels I was born on 12.25.1972 at Travis Air Force Base in Suisun City California. I was told my mom was a teen mother. I have searched on other sites and got hits stating that I was born Marsha J Carney. I am not sure if that’s true. I don’t think there was an agency involved, it most likely was a private adoption. My adoptive parents are now both deceased. I need help and I have no idea where to start. Please reply to all when you respond as I may be off work. I just want to find out who I am. I am of mixed heritage for sure but my parents were not sure what. #2

I'm trying to help my father find out information on his biological parents. He was adopted as an infant. The only reason we're looking into this is for health reasons. My family has health issues and we know nothing about his biological families medical health and that'd be vital information for us. How do I go about finding this out. #3

Helping a friend find her birth family. We have found her parents, but still searching for her brother and sister. Sister was born Dorothy Jean Poling on 10/11/1968 in New Mexico. She was adopted in Texas around 1970. We think her adoptive family's name was Coots and that the adoptive father was retired military. My brother was born Stephen Michael Poling on 07/08/1972, in either New Mexico or Texas, and was adopted by Darrell and Joanne Wilkinson who then lived in El Paso. Desperately seeking to reunite with my family! #14
