          "Teresa Brown demystifies the misinformation clouding adoptee birth family search and provides a clear path of easy to follow checklists and search tips to guide the adoptee through the maze of legal roadblocks and closed doors. The Adoption Records Handbook represents that long awaited light at the end of the darkened tunnel where hope and reality finally meet. An essential roadmap to a successful search" --Richard Fischer, Editor / Publisher of Adoption TODAY & Fostering Families TODAY Magazines.

Adoption Statistics:

The International Soundex Reunion Registry ( is the largest and oldest national free reunion registry with over 230,000 active registrants and several hundred new registrants weekly. These figures were quoted to me from Marri Rillera who runs the non-profit organization. These numbers do not reflect closed records for the multitude of matches that have already been made, gone inactive, or withdrawn over the years.

In 2000 and 2001, about 127,000 children were adopted annually in the United States. (Child Welfare Information Gateway)
