Yes. If we discover that we have access to your file at our agency, we verify your identity before beginning search work. Family & Children’s Agency provides two types of search services:
Will my Birth Parent/Child Know if I Initiate a Search?
Birth parent or children will only be contacted at your request. This process is completely driven by you. We go at the speed you are comfortable with and wait for your approval before initiating any contact.
Important Note: Under Connecticut State law, individuals who were adopted and those who previously made an adoption plan, do not have access to their adoption files. However, the adoption team at Family & Children’s Agency can locate your file and can provide you with information directly from those documents.
If you believe FCA can help you begin a birth parent or child search, contact Margaret Woglom, Assistant Director, Adoption & Early Childhood at 203-523-5341 to begin your search.
