  • My Reunion Story Adoption Puzzle

    My name is Deborah and I'm an adoptee who was reunited in June of 1996 with my Birth Mother and her side of the family. I was born and adopted in 1969 out of Portland Oregon into a wonderful family I love and adore.

    My site brings you everything about adoption: Search Tools, Registries, Mailing Lists, Support, and more for Adoptees, Birth Parents and Adoptive Parents.

    I hope that I have been able to help some in the search process. For those still searching I wish you the best of luck in your continued search.
