Search and Reunion

Adoption Network Cleveland successfully helps adult adoptees, birthparents, siblings and extended families find one another. Our assistance includes providing information on public records, search techniques and emotional support during your search.

Since 1988, we have facilitated over 1,900 searches to completion. We believe that search and reunion can be a powerful experience for all involved. Although some people choose to employ a private search company, we at Adoption Network Cleveland have seen that there is great emotional benefit in the searching individual having an integral role in the process with the guidance and support of our staff and search volunteers. Outcomes of a search can vary widely; therefore, providing consistent support during the process and beyond is something we recognize as vital to long-term healing.

For more information about searching, read answers to frequently asked questions about searching, learn about requirements for searching through Adoption Network Cleveland, or call Linda Bellini, Program Coordinator/Adult Adoptees and Birthparents, at (216) 482-2323.
