I only ask this question because a friend who has an adopted daughter has been found by the biological mother through social networking sites. Daughter is still a minor so she has law, protection in place. Daughter was emotionally, sexually and physically abused by biological family. Both her and her sister, the sister was adopted by another family and now whacko bio mom has located them both.

This leads me to the question that maybe some of these people who have family, friends etc looking for them DO NOT want to be found??

I know lots of info is out there today because of internet but just wondering if it's a privacy issue for some and when you do help to locate people is there ever a request that gives you a feeling of lets leave this one alone?

Simply curious because until this happened to my friend I never even thought how "finding" a person may bring about major issues for that person.

None of the regular searchers on this site will help find minors nor do we help minors find anyone. Over the years I have had some adult searches that I just didn't feel comfortable with so I just move on to the next one. PS. anything I post on here is public info.

Maybe when she is an adult she can consider a friend to friend relationship with bio Mother. And then decide how best to proceed based on her own comfort level at that time.
