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.

    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.

    I am searching for my sister, my mother was forced to give her up for adoption by her parents. She was born in Selma, Alabama on June 28, 1968. My mother actually lived in Tacoma, WA at the time and was “sent away” to give birth. The hospital that she was born in is no longer a hospital, but it was near the Air Force Base in Selma. Family rumors suggest that she was given to other family, very extended family members and she may have been told that her mother was dead. This is not true; she is alive and still searching for her daughter.My mother’s name is Bobbie Ann Davis, and her mother’s name is Virginia L. Davis. It is also rumored that my sister may be living Mississippi. Any help or information will be appreciated. My mother deserves to meet her daughter.

    My name is Rebecca but everybody calls me Lynn. I gave y birth to a child in late Aug 1978. My parents made me give up the baby I was 17 and told I had no rights. I was not to tell anyone or talk to anyone in the house until after the birth. After delivery the Dr came in and asked if I had any questions I asked the sex and weight and if it was OK. His response was whores aren’t worthy to any of that. I eventually became a nurse at that same hospital no one would take care of him so I volunteer. I thought I was crazy but I realized all people need to be taken care of anyway he died a few days later but at that one moment of clarity he said he knew who I was. About a month later that all the adoptions that were set up as private adoptions were babies sold on the black. I lost hope but maybe the baby wasn’t one of them.Sorry I call all babies him. I have never married because of this but I do have another son and that baby is his full sibling.My son has a heart condition and he will die young there is a possibility that the child might have it also and they should know I’ve never told anyone this so thanks for listening. (the reason I can’t remember the exact date in late Aug is I think at some point I blocked it out

    Hi! I’m looking for my mother’s birth parents, or any siblings she may have. She was born in Indiana on July 9, 1963. Her name is Robin. My grandma’s name was Ada Laverne Robinson, and my grandpa was Ned Robinson. We didn’t find out she was adopted until just a few a years ago on Thanksgivig of all days. I don’t have any details aside from the adoption being very sketchy. Not through any agency, as far as I know. My grandpa said the birth mother’s name “may have started with an s.”
