A written request must be submitted to the Office of Adoption. The adoptee’s birth name (if known), birth date and adoptive parents’ names need to be included in the written request. Requests received from adoptees placed by another agency will be forwarded to that agency.
Adoptees can receive non-identifying information-circumstances of their birth family that led to the adoption, history of foster care placement, social and medical history of the birth family. Identifying information-names of birth family members and addresses-cannot be released in accordance with the Adoption Code without a court order.
