After I searched for 32 years‚ including registering here in Feb 2010‚ my son looked
and found me immediately on this site. He had been taken to Germany at age 5 & never came
back. I went to Germany to see him & he is coming here next month. We are very grateful.
Thank you‚ thank you‚ thank you.

Through opening many doors like this site my daughter was able to find me. We had a beautiful reunion last week.
One thing I learned from her is if you have any info at all also look at genealogy sites. Amazingly enough that was the key to her locating me. Many birthmoms list even adoptees in lineage.

Tanya from Lancaster writes:
Ours is a very unique & happy story. My parents had a daughter "Tracy" in high school and gave her up for adoption. Several years later my parents got married and went on to have 3 other children. I've always wanted to find my sister but my mother was not ready for it until some medical issues changed her mind. After receiving the required info from my mom this past June I started searching the internet on sites to find adopted siblings. Your website was the second I visited. I answered the simple questions to complete my profile. The site then performed the search and told me there was one 87.5% match. I had to read it!
As I read the post my heart nearly stopped beating. The profile matched EXACTLY what I was looking for. The profile stated the same birth name and birth dates and birth location as my parents' daughter Tracy. By pure coincidence Tracy put her posting on your website just 2 weeks before I did. Despite me moving all over the world with the military Tracy & I only live 50 miles away from each other. Eight weeks later we received confirmation from the adoption agency. This has to be the easiest adoption reunion in history! We have seen each other several times and talk every day. She has met the entire family - birth mom‚ birth father‚ step mom‚ 2 sisters‚ 1 brother‚ 1 step brother and 2 half sisters - all with spouses and most with kids. She is a perfect fit into our family. Thank you for your website - adopted.com is outstanding! We can't thank you enough for bringing our family together after all these years!
Michael (Wayne) from Bexhill On Sea writes:
I was adopted 40 years ago. I had tried different avenues over the last 20 years‚ but for each one resulting in yet another dead-end. (Didn't help having the wrong information with which to search for my family) As a last ditch attempt‚ just before giving up on my search‚ I left a message on the 'Adopted.com' website‚ as I had on most other sites too‚ then continued my life‚ believing that the hands of fate were not meant for me to find my relatives.
Four weeks ago‚ I received a phone call‚ out of the blue‚ from my birth sister (she had been looking for me for 13 years too)‚ who had seen my message on this site‚ and believed that I could be 'the one' she was looking for.
Therefore‚ all due credit must go to the 'Adopted.com' site for making this reunion possible. I cannot begin to thank-you enough or to express how happy I am now after my 40 year void. You have helped make my life complete for the first time.
My message to others is to never give up believing that there is hope in finding your 'loved ones'‚ even if it does take a bit longer than you maybe anticipated.
Carmen from Isle of Wight writes:
After so many years of searching and trying to find my daughter I had just about given up when I recieved an email from you and my long lost daughter. I am just so delighted and we are now thinking of ways that we can see each other. Thank you. We couldn't have done this without you!
