While the vast majority of our Adoption Angel Request for Assistance Forms are submitted by people in the US, we do indeed sometimes have people from other countries. In that event, it helps to have someone provide assistance who has experience and/or expertize in adoption searches in those countries. I believe we have an angel who specializes i UK adoptions.
In so far as the actual form, it really should include whether or not an adoptee has taken the initiative to request the non-identifying report. In the US the majority of the states have a provision for that regardless of any "gag order" etc.
If an adoptee mainly wants to know where they came from, and not necessarily contact with the birth parents, then I hardly think an attorney is necessary. However, if one is desired or required, I think the information Laura provided regarding the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys as well as the link she gave are most helpful resources! Thanks Laura!
