So how does one go about applying for this information? The first step in searching up adoption records is to gather up everything that you do know.
This includes important information, such as your date of birth, what hospital that you were born in and in what city.
For a fee, there are investigators out there, who work much like referees, not only helping you locate your birth family, but also helping to ease the transition and make contact on a neutral level, checking to see if the birth family wishes to meet with you.
