Post Adoption Disclosure Services
Established as a means for people separated by adoptions that took place in New Brunswick to obtain information and/or be put in contact with each other.
To access these services you must be 19 years or over and the adoption must have taken place in New Brunswick.
The service maintains a Post Adoption Disclosure Register for adult adoptees (those age 19 or over), birth parents and adult birth siblings who want to contact each other. Contact can be facilitated when adoptees and birth relatives are matched with each other because both have placed their names on the register. Both adoptees and birth relatives can also request searches for the person they are seeking.
In addition, the service provides non-identifying information about each other to adoptees, adoptive parents and birth relatives.
