If you came to this blog, I'm thinking you are affected in some way by adoption. If you are searching for a family member, I wish you the best of luck in your search
Myself I am not such a great "searcher", but I've gotten lots of help from some very kind and caring people. There are some very loving people called "Search Angels" that help people searching for their families, I can suggest a couple groups I recommend you join:
http://www.isrr.net/ this registry is a definite must, everyone will tell you to register on this site. You have to print out the form for this one and mail it in to them.
There are lots of other groups you could join, these are a couple I am on and the people here are fantastic.
I also recommend that you post your search information on every adoption registry you can find, and also register with your state board.
It is a good idea to have a journal to keep track of where you've registered, who you talked to in your search, people you've contacted, and their responses. You should also keep a list of where you register and your usernames and passwords.
Anyways, that's a good place to start, and once you are on a few groups, people will be more than happy to help you along in your search.
I wish you all the best in your search.
