The Post-Adoption Registry is available to adoptees (18+ years), adoptive parents, birth mothers, and other eligible family members interested in reuniting with their family members. If the adoptee or birth parent is deceased, other family members may be eligible to register in his or her place.
Once both parties have registered and a match has been made, Catholic Charities of Oregon will contact each party and help share necessary identifying information. We offer counseling to all those involved and will assist with the first meeting if requested.
Non-identifying information is also available to adoptees, birth mothers, and adoptive families. This information includes any medical, genetic, and social history that was available at the time of the adoption. It does not include names, birth dates, addresses, or other identifying information. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the non-identifying information to be mailed to you.
