If you are an adoptee placed by Adoptions Together looking for your birth family, or a birth parent who placed with Adoptions Together, we can help with every step of the search, contact, and reconnection process.

If your adoption was finalized in the state of Maryland, adoptees must be 21 or older to initiate this process due to legal restrictions. If your adoption was finalized in the state of Virginia, you can begin the S&R process at 18 years old.If your adoption was finalized in another state, please reach out to Claire to determine the specific laws of that state regarding S&R.

For placements that took place in Maryland, the first step will be to register on the state database:

Mutual Consent Voluntary Adoption Registry (MCVAR)

Once you have done so, or if the placement took place in a different state, please reach out to Claire—
