How Can I Get the Medical Information I Need?

A complete medical profile of the birth families will be provided to the adoptive parents early on in the adoption. Should the adoptee develop a serious medical or physical illness, however, and further or more recent information be required, adoptive parents (or adult adoptees) may request a Severe Medical Search.


This search is only granted in the case of a severe physical or mental illness suffered by an adoptee or one of their direct descendants. A medical professional must complete a portion of the Severe Medical Search request warranting that disclosure of medical information could be of direct medical benefit in diagnosing or treating the condition.
