Adoption Angels Project

This page is for people who are searching for unknown parents, whether you are an NPE (unexpected parentage), donor child, foundling, disconnected from your family, or any other cases of unknown parentage. If you are an adoptee, please see Resources for Adoptees. Although our name is Adoption Angels, we assist with all cases of unknown parentage.


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 birth history (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.
