ISS-USA connects adult adoptees and their biological family members across international borders, and locates adoption records and other documents.
ISS-USA Services for Adult Adoptees and Their Relatives:
ISS-USA offers services for adult adoptees, living in the United States or abroad, who are searching for biological relatives and/or documents in another country.
- Post Adoption Training– searches for biological relatives by an adult adoptee, or for an adult adoptee by biological relatives.
- Adoption Records Tracings – locates adoption records for any adult adoptee who was adopted through the ISS Network. Only an adoptee can request the adoption record
ISS-USA ensures that the process of connecting with biological relatives respects the privacy of the persons being searched for, as well as their preferences on how to engage with new family connections. ISS-USA will not disclose any personal or contact information without express permission to do so.
*ISS-USA does not have the resources to support post-adoption tracings for domestic adoptions.
