Adoption can raise questions.
Often, these questions are only asked years down the line.
If you were adopted in childhood, you might want to know about your biological parents.
Perhaps you simply want to satisfy a curiosity? Even if you were raised by loving adoptive parents, and wouldn’t trade them for any alternative, you might wonder where you originally came from.
Some people want to learn about their biological parents to discover their medical history. Are there genetic conditions or risk factors that have been passed on, or might be passed on to your children?
The Adoption Contact Register
If you would like to make contact with a biological parent, then you can add your name to the Adoption Contact Register.
Unfortunately, connections are only made if your biological parent also signs up to the register.
Unless you’re both on the register, you have no way of getting in touch.
What other options are available?
There are agencies dedicated to finding the biological parents of adopted children, and vice versa.
These agencies can be used if you were adopted in 2005 or earlier.
You might also consider the services of a private investigator. Private investigators, or private detectives, have the expertise required to trace missing persons and can put this to use to find your biological parents.
Whatever your reason for wanting to trace a relative, your case will be treated with the utmost discretion.
A family history is a tapestry of facts and opinions. Your parents may have a strong presence and be easy to find, or could be more difficult to trace.
With our Preston private investigators, the focus will be on using all available resources to find the relative that you’d like to contact.
