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. This booklet outlines some issues and feelings that may arise as part of the adoption experience. For some people intense feelings are experienced during the search, reunion and post-reunion journey.
