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 looking for my sons, Christian Aaron August Kirby, Nicholas Scott Turner, Joseph Andrew Turner and Steven Kyle Turner. They were put up for adoption on September 26th, 2005. I think that they were all adopted except for Christian. I have heard many different stories about where he might be, but the not knowing and the daily concern and worries over the last 9 years are preventing me from having any peace. If anyone reads this and knows him, just by some wild crazy chance……please tell him that he is my heart and that I love him more than anything. I wait, impatiently, for the day that I can see his face again. Christian, Nicholas, Joseph and Steven, I love you with all my heart and sorry for the things that has happened, I will forever wait for you and ready to answer any questions you may have. Please don’t listen to everything you hear about me, I will tell you everything you want or need to know. I can’t take any of it back but I can explain it better than anyone else. I love you all………….please contact me by e-mail it will never change. I am currently living in San Antonio and will go anywhere in the world to see any of you.
