Search and Reunion
The Journey of Search
Search is an exciting and complicated process. Whether you are an adopted person or a birth parent you have probably been thinking about this for many years. This is an unpredictable process and one that takes time and patience. Some young adults have begun the search and decide to stop; just knowing it is available to them. They may come back to it later. Some decide to pursue finding out more information or reading documents for the very first time with their own eyes. And some decide to contact their birth parent(s) and meet. These are your choices which you will decide about along the way. It is a journey which will take time and thought.
Adoptions With Love doesn’t consider the adoption over at time of placement, it is just the beginning of a lifelong bond to over 1,600 children and their families.
At different times in a child’s life they may ask questions about their birth parents, want to know more of their story, may need more in-depth medical history, or as they age, may decide they want to find their birth mother and/or birth father. Adoptions With Love is ready to help.
WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE CONTACTING SOMEONE ON FACEBOOK
Several years ago, the AWL board of directors formed a Search and Reunion Committee to assist children, families, and birth parents as they seek more information. We offer counseling and search services and can help you navigate through this process.
