What you need to keep in mind
Don't assume that your biological parents don't care for you or don't want to see you. Always pursue your search with an open heart and rational mind. The moment you find your biological parents 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 parents with any preconceived expectations. Try to be understanding and open to whatever form your reunion might take. Be sensitive to the emotions of your birth parents and their loved ones who may be affected by the reunion.
BEGIN YOUR SEARCH
Wow! I have been looking for years. Within five minutes of subscribing and logging in I was in contact with my sister. My match was in the 85% category. I'm so happy! Feels good to finally have the missing link to our family. Can't wait to hug you.....
Luckily my birth mother and her dear friend set up an account on Adopted.com. Within minutes of becoming a member and starting my search‚ I found who I thought was her and left a message. The next morning I woke up and checked. Voila! It was her friend that set up the account and put me in touch with her. In less than 24hrs I found her with your website. Thank You!
Can I not get a copy of my birth certificate from a government agency and search elsewhere using my parent’s name?
While that is a possibility, you need to make sure the name on your birth or baptismal is actually your parent’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.

After you sign up, we ask you ten simple questions. The answers you give to these questions will be instantly compared with more than 736,001 profiles, giving you a report of how many profiles match your responses and to what extent.
