Post Adoption Services
The most common requests we receive are from adult adoptees who are seeking medical history information, or are searching for their birth parents or siblings. The steps towards those outcomes will vary depending on the type of adoption that occurred.
Central Adoption Registry
The Central Adoption Registry is maintained by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and contains statements from former parents and former adult siblings only. Those statements indicate whether the former parents and/or former adult siblings are consenting to or denying the release of identifying information. Information from the Central Adoption Registry will be forwarded to adoption agencies and courts upon request so they can determine what type of information can be released to an adult adoptee. The Registry may only be accessed by the court or agency.
