Find Adoptee | Search By Date Of Birth Of Child

Adoptee Search

You may be surprised that you can find an adoptee by having just the date of birth of your birth child.  It’s true: having just a date of birth can lead to a successful adoptee search!

If you can recall your child’s date of birth, online databases are available to compile a list of persons, along with their addresses and phone numbers, born on that date of birth who currently or previously have been associated with the state where the adoptee was born.  This list might be quite large, depending on the state, but will give you a reasonable chance to find your birth child by placing phone calls and writing letters.

(If you do not recall the exact date of birth, there are several ways you may obtain it, which we will provide you shortly in a future post.)

Of course, any additional identifying information on your birth child that you have or can  obtain in addition to the date of birth will help you develop an even better, more focused list–or perhaps even an exact match.  Helpful information might include:

  • The amended (adoptive) first and/or last name of your birth child
  • The first and/or last names of the adopting parents
  • The age range of the adopting parents
  • The non-amended, (original name) of your birth child
  • The occupation of the adopting parents
  • The area where the adopting parents resided at the time of the adoption
  • The race and religion of the adopting parents
  • The education of the adopting parents
  • The name of the adoption agency or attorney that handled the adoption
  • The name of the birth physician
  • The name of the birth hospital
  • When the adopting parents applied to adopt
  • The hobbies of the adopting parents
  • The medical history of the adopting parents
  • The physical description of the adopting parents
  • Other historical information

Some or all of the above information might be developed from a number of sources that we will write about shortly.  We’ll also discuss statewide date of birth searching.

    Searching for birth parents or siblings.
    Adoptee: baby girl born 05/14/1973 in Miami.
    Was known as Baby Jocelyn possibly?
    Heard years later that the attorney got in trouble for charging too much for the services?

      Are you sure all of your information is correct? I am in search of my cousin who was born in October, 1973 in the West Palm Beach area.

        Hi Brenda,

        Thanks for getting in touch. I belive my information to be correct. It’s on my birth certificate and adoption information.

        Best of luck with your search!

      Kate,
      Please get a dna test through one of the national companies like 23andme or Familytreedna or similar.
      I don’t have a potential mothers name anymore. I lost her name and address in a fire. But you fit the timeline that I’m searching in. My dna is registered with Familytreedna. I’m a father that knows his child was born in late spring of 1973. (Actually, your DOB is only 5 days away from conception, if you were full term.)

      Good luck with your search.

        Hi Bob,

        I will look into it. I’m in the UK (long story), so it might be tricky, but I’ll see what I can do!

        Thank you for getting in touch. :)

        The only thing my mom said she remembered the attorney saying about my birth mom is that she was a ‘big’ lady. My mom didn’t know if she was tall or heavy built, if that helps at all.

    I am helping a friend look for her birth parents. She was born on 1/6/1993 and adopted in Mecklenburg County of Charlotte NC. It is said that her mother was 17(also adopted) and her father was 22. It is possible that her father had a twin or a brother close in age. He was supposedly working for McDonalds at the time of her birth and was against giving her up. If anyone has any information please let me know.
