Birth parent search

In many cases, adoptees do not seek to locate their biological parents for a variety of reasons, one of the most common being a fear of hurting the adopted parents. In reality, however, most adoptive parents adopted in the first place with the understanding that their adopted children will one day grow up and want answers.

It is of the utmost importance that a search for biological parents be performed with discretion and care. Because of this, our professionals offer advice as to possible ramifications of such a search and make our clients aware of the possibility of unforeseen consequences. At EPIS, we will support our client’s decisions throughout the entire search process.

It is also important to understand that searching for a birth parent can be very simple but in some cases very time consuming. We will try to give you an indication of the complexity of the case on our first meeting or discussion. It is common for an individual to want to know and understand their roots and their past. Children who are adopted often grow up without this knowledge, which can leave the feeling that something is missing despite having a loving environment with their adopted parents.

Often questions such as “Who do I look like?” or “Why was I put up for adoption?” arise and become so strong that the need for answers becomes essential.

Steps for Locating Adoptees, Birth Parents, and Adoption Records

Searches for birth parents or adoptee occur routinely in the United States, where it has been estimated that over 6 million American have been touched by adoption in one way or another. The reasoning behind these searches is as unique as the individuals involved, however the most common in simple curiosity. Major events such as a birth or death also provide those involved with the urge to actively seek out their biological parents or adopted children.

What is a birth parent?

A parent provides the care in a mother or father role of a child. For most children this refers to biological parents. On the other side of this, however, is the role that adoptive parents play.

The term “birth parent” refers to the biological mother or father of a child.
