So I was forcibly removed from BM care when I was about 2 or 3 and placed in foster care and got adopted when I was 7. I am thinking about looking for my BM because I dont know why or what happened and would like to know if I have any siblings aside from my brother who got adopted with me. My problem is I have almost no information other then the name I was given at birth and my BM first name and my BF first and last name, I think my mom has that info but I dont want to ask her or her to know I am looking. What can I do?Answer Question

Start searching the names on the Internet. Also look up family trees. You can also do name and phone number searches. If they have ever got social security than you can pull that up to. Good luck.

This is the link to the Michigan DHS/CPS. I would like you to consider telling your adoptive parents that you are wanting to search & are going to get your file. For a couple of reasons: 1) to give your parents the opportunity to support you during this journey, and 2) sometimes the info in your record has all the graphic, gory details of your life in foster care. While this is enlightening, it can also be emotionally damaging, and I would like you to have a support system when you do this.
