||If you are a birth relative seeking an adopted adult, you have a right to an intermediary service under the Adoption and Children Act. Apply to the Adoption and Permanency [fostering] team at your Local Authority Social Services. Some LA\\\'s offer a free service and others (more cash strapped) have delegated the service to another Adoption Support Agency which may charge. However it is the only sure way to find out the adoptee\\\'s new identity, have them traced and asked if they would like contact from you. You may have to wait in a queue and the process can seem bureaucratic but it is the only way forward unless the adoptee searches for you. I do this type of tracing for several local authorities in the SE of England. If you need further direction on who to approach do email me. Reply if you need more info on the contact details for a specific Local Authority and I will help you. My postal address is Jigsaw Tracing Agency, PO Box 120, Ashtead, Surrey, KT21 2WS.
