Adoption - Finding Birth Parents or Siblings
« on: June 12, 2006, 02:26:20 PM »
There is one Post Adoption Team based in Northern Ireland. http://www.sebt.n-i.nhs.uk
They are at ... 33, Wellington Park, Belfast BT6 9DL Phone 028 9020 4500
Initial enquiries start at this point. Phoning form the Irish Republic or overseas 0044 2890 204500

If you were adopted in a different area in Northern Ireland the team will put you through to a person, who should be able to offer further assistance, in the relevent area in which you were adopted. Records of adoption in Northern Ireland should be retained for 75 years.

People who were adopted or those who had a sibling adopted can spend many years searching for their relatives. Some of them may be disappointed when they learn that their relatives, particularly the older one, want to know nothing about them. The birth mother may have remarried, made a fresh start in life and have more children who do not know of the existence of another brother or sister. That is the birth mother's right but I see no harm in doing everything possible to assist those who were adopted, or have an adopted sibling, in their search as they too have rights to learn as much as possible about their families. It's great when you hear about the success stories and there are many such stories so let us keep on helping with these searches as well as those of ancestors.

Here are a few more useful sites:

The Adoption Registry is the world's largest adoption reunion registry with 301,010 Adoption Records and is celebrating ten years of miracles.

The UK Adoption Tracing Service website has an Adoption Contact Register where you can check for any birth relatives who may also be registered on the site. The results are given immediately and you can return to check the Register whenever you like. The site was started as the task of tracing people or information about them is a time consuming and meticulous task that people can't always undertake by themselves due to lack of time and resources or purely geographical locations. This service has been set up to provide an inexpensive way of tracing birth relatives. The UK Adoption Tracing Service ensures that there are no escalating or hidden charges in the event of a difficult or prolonged search, and every avenue available is searched.

Should adopted, and donor conceived, children have the right to know about their biological identity? Click here to read about the twins who were separated at birth
and married each other without realising they were brother and sister.

Irish Survivors www.irishsurvivors.com appears to be a good website for people who spent some time in an institutional establishment. The facilities offered by the site include ... a search can be made for any institution in Ireland; people joining the site will be able to register theirr details under the institution in which they were a resident and set up a facility to enable them to email former residents who also register and a trace profile can be set up for someone being sought. 

There are other threads relating to Adoption on the Forum ...

Descendants of Deceased Adopted Persons (DAP) Campaign

The DAP group has been formed to collect background and supporting information to highlight an anomaly in the law and discover how many people are affected and in what way. The group would like to hear from people who ...

a) Have been unable to obtain birth details of their deceased adopted parents or older relatives

b) Have obtained the information about their deceased adopted parent or relatives from, for example, the original Court where the adoption order was made or from the adoption agency involved in the adoption arrangements.
