In the past the granting of an adoption order generally meant that contact with the
adoption agency ceased. As more and more people return to agencies seeking
information, a new openness has developed and agencies welcome contact from anyone
involved in the original adoptive process.
Many people who hope to obtain information concerning their families of origin or who
wish to meet their birth parents, have questions about where to begin. This booklet aims
to offer some information and help in this area. Although it is written primarily for the
person who was adopted, fostered or raised in residential care, it may also answer some
of the queries raised by birth families and/or adoptive families.
