Help finding adopted siblings in North Dakota

This is for a a friend, she found out right before her mother passed that she has a few (2 brothers?) that were put up for adoption in North Dakota.  She has lost her father too and is all alone.  She would really like to find her siblings not necessarily to start a relationship but she would love that, she just wants to say hi and let them know that they are not alone in the world either.  She just feels all alone in the world.

She tried to get records from the capitol but the laws in ND are pretty harsh about releasing info.  She doesn't have a lot of money and can't hire a service.  Any suggestions on how she could go about this?

Try posting a wish in wishiponahero. See if your friend has more info like dob and the hospital they were born in as well as the name on their birth certificates etc.

I have no idea, can she contact the adoption agency? I know a big one out here is lutheran social services - my husband and his siblings were adopted throuh them. Good luck!

When children are adopted out..i think it's best if they decide if they want to meet the bio family. She could try posting her info with agencies that work with adopted children..but not directly contact them herself. What if they dont know they're adopted? What if they dont want to be found? Ya know

Do you have any more information?  What city, birthdates?

 Her mom was from Monango, ND by Ellendale.  Right between Aberdeen, SD and Jamestown, ND.  The siblings would have been born mid 70's to early 80's.  I will try to see what I can get.
