What you need to keep in mind
Don't assume that your biological father doesn’t care for you or doesn’t want to see you. Also, do not assume the contrary. Always pursue your search with an open heart and rational mind. The moment you find your biological father can be unique, special and sometimes emotionally overwhelming. However, there are a few things all searchers can keep in mind when they connect with their loved ones. It's best not to approach your father with any preconceived expectations. Try to be understanding and unconditionally cherish the joy of a reunion. Be sensitive to the emotions of your birth father and his loved ones who may be affected by the reunion.
Begin your search
Can I not get a copy of my birth certificate from a government agency and search elsewhere using my father’s name?
While that is a possibility, you need to make sure the name on your birth or baptismal is actually your father’s, because sometimes a close relative or stepfather's name is used on these records. Also, some regions do not disclose birth details for adoptees.
