A path to knowing who they are.

When your child reaches the age of 18 they can request their birth records. They may also decide they would like to search for birth relatives at this time, and possibly meet with them if searches are successful.

This can be a very emotional time for you, as well as them. Access to birth records can answer a lot of questions, but also raise many more.

As a professional intermediary agency we are best placed to help you, and them, deal with the complex feelings and issues that this process brings up.

We know this can be a difficult time and we can help you, as a family, deal with any difficult feelings that you may have.
