Searching and contact - the next steps

Once you have located your adoption records you may decide to take the next step and search for your birth relatives or an adopted adult. Choose from the options on the left to read about searching for and making contact with relatives, the role that intermediary services can play and what to expect from reunions.

There is also a section called Contact not wanted providing advice for adopted people or birth parents who do not want to be contacted.
