DNA Matching is a highly effective way to make connections with parents, children, and siblings. We offer services to support you at all stages of your search.
We work closely with major DNA services like MyHeritage, AncestryDNA, FamilyTree, and 23andMe. Learn about the options and then complete your testing.
If you have already done your testing, you can upload your file to Adopted.com and we will check for matches against all of our member’s DNA files.
We work with amazing researchers who can uncover the secrets hidden in your DNA! They can review your DNA data and find relatives you didn’t know you had!
DNA File Uploading is FREE for all members of Adopted.com for a limited time!
How DNA Matching works for finding your biological family
DNA can help adoptees and birth family members reunite by matching DNA. Since everyone inherits DNA from their parents, sequences of DNA may be shared beteween relatives. Often the more DNA that is shared, the closer the relative is to you.
Specific DNA markers, at certain locations in human DNA, contain predictable inheritance patterns which identify individuals and have been found useful in determining biological relationships. Since the markers are inherited from each parent, each person’s DNA markers could differ in length and sequence from each other but more closely resemble the DNA markers of the birth parents.
Usage of specific markers helps reduce the “false positive” since 2 people can share large quantities of DNA that defines human traits or specific ethnic characterstics.
My birth son just found me‚ and a DNA check seals the deal; I am a bio-grandma! Amazing! Adopted.com is a game
changer. Thanks for making this reunion possible.
I found a woman on Adopted.com and started to message her. After talking about two weeks we got a DNA test and a month later
we found out we ARE sisters!!! Thank you Adopted.com your service is invaluable!!
I found my birth mom and father! 23andme showed me a cousin who turned out to be from my dad's side. With a little
information that I had from the maternity home and that genetic info‚ we were able to find out who they were. My birth
mom and I have been in contact‚ my dad passed away recently.
After finding out my Ancestey DNA results, I am blessed to say that I found my Birth Mother. Adopted.com is a wonderful tool. I'm forever so grateful for Adopted.com.
Birthmother found through DNA from MyHeritage!
I was able to find my birth mother through the help of DNA testing and two wonderful individuals who did a lot of research. I
just got off the phone with my birth mom and she still has my baby picture. There will be more phone calls and a
meeting in the future!
Found my son on the first day I was on the site. I was sure‚ but we waited for the DNA to get excited! Thank
you‚ I cannot express my gratitude for Adopted.com. May God bless you all.
Katharine and her team were so helpful and kind. With compassionate support and guidance, they successfully confirmed a DNA lead between Ancestry and 23&Me, to reunite me with my birth mother. We are filled with eternal gratitude. Thank

I completed a DNA test and
it matched me with even more family than I
ever could have imagined. I have found my birth mother & brother!
DNA confirmed the half sister I found on Adopted.com!
The only match I had turned out to be
my biological mother. DNA test
confirmed 99.99999% maternity.
Thankful I found this website!
Even though I did my DNA test on another site‚ I was able to at least learn one
of my family names here. I contacted one of my matches on adopted.com and she mentioned the name. After messaging back
and forth‚ she took the same test. Happily‚ she is my mother.
Katharine was amazing helping me. I found a post that had to be related to me and tried emailing it but didn't get a response. They
had not used that address for some time. Katharine reached out and worked to help find other contacts. She also helped me pick a DNA
which gave me a match with an aunt and a cousin. Amazing.
I found my sister right away‚ we did a dna test 5 days later to confirm. She met our mother on Mothers day. What a gift.
Amazing site. Found birth son in ten minutes. Have a positive dna match. After 48 years he's back.
I found my daughter and we have been in contact! The DNA link was what did it.
I have located my biological family‚ both my mother's and father's side. My parents are both deceased‚ but I have five new sisters and one new brother! I have met all but one sister.
They have been welcoming and lovely to me. I am very fortunate to have met them all. The miracle of DNA!
I have located siblings on both parents' side of my biological family. Both my parents have passed‚ so my siblings didn't feel conflicted about returning my messages. With DNA results‚ I narrowed the results down over a period of months.
I found both of my Birthparents! I was stuck for a long time and had
registered with many adoption registries‚ each one led to new clues to help further my search. DNA helped close in on a
3rd cousin who found the missing links in my past!
