I have been unavailable lately and apologize for not responding back to people that have asked for my help. I had a death in the family and was not able to help. I am back now and am willing to help people that need it. I am a volunteer searcher and do this out of the kindness of my heart. If you need help, especially in Texas, I am more than willing to help. I too am looking for my neice and know that the search progress can be difficult. But just ask and I am here.

I'm an adult adoptee in my 50's looking for help in locating my birth families. My closed adoption went through the Harris County, Texas Family Court. Around the mid 1990's I contacted the Texas Adoption Registry in Austin. I was warned that the process could be long & that even my birthday raises a flag that my birth could be approximated. In addition, I was still encouraged & advised that perhaps some information(i.e. a certificate #) on my adopted birth certificate can be cross reference to the original archives in Austin. But my first attempt should start in Houston. Over 10 years ago I cross referenced info from the downtown Houston warehouse logs. As I appeared without representation before a Family Court Judge my request to ask for my records to be opened was declined. The judge gave me no explanation & didn't even ask me why I was making the request. Since then my adopted father has died. My maternal adopted family supports my mom & believes I'm dishonoring the love I've received from my adopted families. Since I have been diagnosed with congested heart failure my life has changed tremendously. I'm very fortunate to have my 2nd pacemaker. Each new day brings the gift to inhale & exhale. Your support as a volunteer Search Angel is immeasurable....I'm new to this website & need assistance navigating to know where to look receive your reply. With a heart of gratitude I await your reply!!! Smarkle

You should look at this web site [url=]Texas Vital Statistics – Central Adoption Registry[/url] which is the voluntary mutual-consent registry. It's possible that his birth mother has registered and if he registers too they will connect them. Good luck.
