Looking for Birthmother! Where to Start????

Hi, I need help finding someones birthmother. We know no info, except the hospital name, DOB, etc (going by adoptive birth certificate). Do not know the persons original name (was changed when adopted) nor the birthmothers name.

Could it be possible to contact the hospital and they look up the medical records from when they were born?? has anyone tried this? Any help or info on reuniting and finding birthparents would be great. Thanks

  • Check out this website: it's a national database with search angels who are amazing in finding anyone!

    Also, is another one to work with in searching and to see if the birthfamily is looking.

    If you want, I can try locating them too. I found my birthfamily in 4 mos. I can see what I can come up with. PM if you want to.

  • Here in the state of texas..the adoptee can go and petition the court (state) to open adoption records and through this you obtain adoption information. Original birth certificate (which might have another name along with Bio-Mother's etcc..)
