Adoption Angels Project

This is a list of help pages available for adoptees to help them find their biological family.

If you are an adoptee, have taken a DNA test, and are ready for help finding your birth parents, please complete the Adoption Angels application.


Follow the Process

Before you begin your search, it's important to understand there is a process to finding birth parents that will make the search quickly successful. Here are the basic first steps:

  1. Decide on your goals for the search. What do you hope will happen by the end of the search?
  2. Gather all the available information about your adoption story (both stories and paperwork).
  3. Take a DNA test.
  4. Seek help from people with experience finding birth family.
  5. Once your search is complete, connect with others who can advise you on how to find emotional closure.
