What's Unique about Our Search and Reunion Program
Our commitment to openness and philosophy of respect for the adoptee’s right to information, prompted us to assume responsibility for almost 2000 adoption records in 1994. These records were transferred from seven Virginia adoption programs, which closed. The records would have been destroyed, if we had not volunteered to receive them. We held those records and provided services to those clients until 2006 when the records were returned to one of the agencies who had resumed adoption services.
We continue to be willing to provide search services on behalf of adult adoptees who do not have a designated agency in Virginia.
We offer a free monthly support group for any birth parent, adult adoptee and adoptive parent. This group is the only such support network in the Central VA area.
We recognize that a decision to search involves considerable thought and a range of emotions. We take this responsibility seriously and will be respectful and sensitive to the needs of all involved.
