I found my daughter adopted mom on Facebook she doesnt know I found it.  She tried to keep her profile private but failed to realize that if you post on a public page you can be searched.  I can't much just a few pictures here and there but its an extra glimpse into my daughters life so I will take it.

           If  you  have  ANY  ideas  how/where  I  can  search  for  my  son =  I 'd  LOVE  to  hear  'em  !

           know  ANY  'search  angels'  that  aren't  already  swamped, trying  to  help  with  other  searches  ?

I have seen several kids looking for their birthmoms on facebook. When I see them I also share and hope that others share.

A search Angel found my daughter in 2001. It took her a couple of weeks and she charged me 40.00. I hear they don't usually charge money.

I'm not a search angel, I'm a birthmother and an adoptee. I know where my daughter is. And I plan to keep tabs on her until she is 18. She turns 3 on the 24th. I'm currently looking for my mother. I know what state she lives in and have three potential addresses for her. My father is deceased. I'd love to help you look. What do you know about him?

Lori,
Have you filled out and filed any of these forms? It appears as though obc's are available for adoptees but I don't see any open records for mothers/fathers looking.

If I remember rightly Gov. Christie Vetoed the open records bill in NJ.
