Open Adoption Records In Colorado!
Open Adoption Records In Colorado
Great news for those adopted in Colorado who are searching for their birth parents. Persons adopted in Colorado will soon have access to their original birth records, as long as their adoption was finalized between July 1, 1951 and June 30, 1967.
OmniTrace contacted the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to confirm that Colorado open adoption records will soon be available. They have informed us that forms will be available to request original birth certificates on June 29, 2009.
In addition, Richard Uhrlaub, Co-Director of Adoptee in Search/Colorado’s Triad Connection, has indicated that adoptees will be able to visit the county where their adoptions were finalized and obtain their unsealed adoption records.
OmniTrace will post additional details, as we receive them, on exact procedures to obtain your original birth certificate and Colorado adoption records.
Once you obtain your original birth certificate and adoption records, you will still have much work to do. At this juncture, you will likely have your birth mother’s maiden name and some background history on your birth family. Now you will need to determine current names and addresses of your family members via, Internet research, database research and genealogical research. Then, you will need to discreetly make contact with your birth family members. (It is possible that your birth mother has never told anyone about your existence.)
