    I joined the group because I wanted to encourage the rest of you -- I moved in 1980 to the town where I was born because that was the only connection I had with my birth parents. Well, it's 2012, and through the help of a wonderful intermediary -- thanks Pat if you happen to float these boards -- I found BOTH my birth Mom and my birth Dad and a bonus -- I have two half sisters -- one on each side!

    I have met my birth Dad and my one half sister, and it has been tremendous. I have Skyped with my birth Mom and my other half sister, but am planning on taking a long trip in August so I can go meet them!

    Department of Human Resources (DHR)

    Contact the above for the birth state the adoptee was born in.

    They have Search and Reunion capabilities regardless if it was a closed adoption or legal adoption.

    They will first provide you with non-identifying information.

    Then they will try and help you locate the birth-parents as long as both adoptee and birth parent consent to further contact.

    I hope this helps - it worked for me in less than 5 months of filing the paperwork and of no cost to me.

    i was born June 17,1970 in Buffalo, New York. I was told that my birth mom had many other children. My birth name is Ann Elizabeth. My adoption was in 1975. I assume my birth mother was on drugs because after the adoption went through she sent a letter to the agency(unsure which one) Saying she wanted $100 for me!
