My mom had a son before me. It's a long story but she put him up for adoption. His name was Michael at birth. It was a closed adoption. I don't think they had open at the time. She did not want to give him up but as i said long story. To me, regardless he is my brother. Whenever asked about siblings, I include him. I've never met him, have no idea what he looks like.. but there is someone out there who is biologically my brother. I want to know him. Is there a way to find him. It was closed so I don't think I can get anything out of the company. My mom gave me permission to find him. She wants to know who he is too. SHe misses him. Every birthday and holiday is rough on her. Any ideas, tips, just anything??Answer Question

register here http://www.isrr.net/ and http://registry.adoption.com/form_a.php and have your mother register too. Also contact the adoption agency or lawyer that handled the adoption, leave a letter in the file stating that you are searching and ask the agency to forward a letter to the adoptive parents on your behalf. This is a link to the adoption search resourse group: http://www.cafemom.com/group/35065 There's loads of advice there. If you can get a name of either your brother or his adoptive parents then you can get a free search volunteer, called a search angel, to help you find him. There is never any need to pay for someone to search for you.

My suggestion would be to find and attend an adoption search and support group. Network with others who have searched the area, facilator and state your brother was adopted in. They know the laws concerning disclosure of info in that state, and would know of hints for where else to obtain info. It's great that your Mom wants to find too, because from what I' m aware of- many states do not recognize the right of siblings to search for one another. KNOW what you're entitled to obtain thru that states laws of disclosure. If you need help locating search/support groups, and adoption disclosure law, I'd be glad to share links to sites that can help.
