BJ--I'm an adopted person. My adoptive mother told me the name of the man who handled my adoption at an agency. He was still working there!!!! He sent me non identifying information which means I will probably never know who gave birth to me. I encourage you to write down in a letter all the information you know. Keep this paper with your will so that your children can have it. Write on the outside what the information is like "information about *'s birth parent" That way your children will always have the choice of opening the envelope or not.
For a very long time I wondered about searching but I never have. I've got so much pain in dealing with my adoptive family I really don't need any more confusion.
