Adopted from Poland; trying to find my biological parents

18 Aug 2016 #61
I am trying to help my daughter find out anything about her birth mother, we have a first and last name as well as last known address. What is the best way to start this process? Should we contact the attorney we used while in Poland? The agency we used? The orphanage directly? We adopted 16 years ago so I don't know how long records are kept or where.

We don't speak Polish and I'm sure she doesn't speak English but we would like to at least get some medical info. if possible.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

mattier ask your adoptive parents. They must have a wealth of information.

Nyphri20 / piotrze, your message is already a few years old, how is your search going? Did you find your other siblings? My sister (i.e. within the adoption family) has a very similar story, she was born in 1994 in Poland. Feel free to contact me if you want to compare the original names.

Nyphri20 / piotrze, my sister, born in 1994, was adopted from the orphanage of Stargard SzczeciƄski, does that match the area in which you were looking?

Hello, this isn't something I normall do at all. However, I am looking for my brother Adrian (I'm not even sure how he spells it) and my birth parents. I was born in Krakow Poland in 1995 - I was adopted by a family in the U.S and now reside here. My brother would be 2 years older than me - my mother and father would be most likely in their 40(s) at this point. They were teenagers when I was born. I'm trying to include as many specifics as I can. Incase by some chance someone from my family sees this. Thank you.

Such family reunions rarely end well. After the initial excitement, hugs and a couple of tears, what's next? If you don't have that figured out because of language and distance, let the sleeping dog sleep in peace.

My name is Jillian Meisinger and I was adopted in Poland. My date of birth is 07-08-1987 and Carol & John Meisinger of Bristol, Connecticut. U.S.A. adopted me around 2 or 3, maybe from Bialystok Poland. In my home state of Connecticut in the United States, I'm having a hard time finding my adoption records. Unfortunately, the adoptive parents Carol & John Meisinger will not provide me any information on my adoption. This family also disowned me at a young age, causing a lot of hurt anguish for myself. I feel a whole in my heart and am looking for any information in finding who my biological parents are or where I came from?

the adoptive parents Carol & John Meisinger will not provide me any information on my adoption.

In that case, your quest is doomed to failure. However, when there is will, there`s a way too. If you have a lot of money, you can hire legal investigators who might try to find it for you.

Here`s an example:

But that will cost you many thousands $, including travels to Poland.

If you had a legal change of name at the time of adoption it means that your case went through family court and then the case was locked.

you need an expert.

I just connected 3 siblings together when on of them was adopted from Poland to Sweden. They had a family meeting (many emotions after almost 40 years...)

Maybe I can help also in your cases?

Such re-unions with the natural parents seldom end well. Life is not a Lifetime movie.

I found this thread trying to help my cousin find her birth parents. Her & her sisters were adopted in Poland by an American couple. Would someone be able to point us in the right direction? She has been trying for years with no luck. She has her birth mothers full name & birthdate as well as a former address. As far as her birth father, she has only his name. As I understand, Poland has strict privacy laws so it is difficult for us to do this on our own. Any searching she has done in the past has been a dead end. She really need some answers...or closure. Thank you for any guidance!

Honestly kasia don't bother you don't know what worms might be under that stone. My mother was also adopted. Nobody wants to be ' found '.

Adopted from Poland and i need help with finding siblings. Anyone know any private investigators or an agency that will obtain records?

Due to privacy laws it might be tricky.
Get your own birth record first - make sure it's the original one with your biological parents' names.
