An adopted person comments: 
"I feel like I came from a file drawer. Ive searched, Ive tried everything and I keep hitting brick walls."
Some of the reasons for a search are:
  • to discover ones own national origins 
  • to obtain important medical and genetic history 
  • to learn the origins of physical and personality traits, drives and ambitions 
  • to complete ones own genealogical identity 
  • to understand the reasons for separation 
  • to find the location of other living members of the birth family
