Project Search & Reunion

The Post Adoption program has embarked on an unprecedented project - we are auditing approximately 3,500 of our own adoption files between the years of 1950-2000 to ensure that adoptees and their families have received information and materials about their adoptions they are entitled to but may not have seen, and to offer support efforts for reconnection. Read more about the project here!

Reflections from a volunteer: "Looking at old baby pictures, reading through interviews with adoptive birth parents, and scanning over the minute details of every unique adoption, it is hard not to feel an intimate connection to the people whose information is contained in the inconspicuous manila folders. Having access to this confidential and very personal information is an immense responsibility."

If you are detail oriented and desire to support our pursuit toward openness, volunteering for Project Search & Reunion may be just the right fit for you.
