As of January 1, 2022, CHS has discontinued its search and reunion services, but we have a few places we recommend to continue your search, such as the Florida Adoption Registry, Commercial DNA Services such as Ancestry.com, or contacting the local court where your adoption was finalized.

Birth parents may update family and/or medical history at any time. Those adopted through CHS may request non-identifying family medical history at any time.

Continuing Your Search

Non-identifying information request

We are happy to provide non-identifying information from your record, such as hair color and eye color of the baby or biological parents, for a $75 fee.

Updates and exchanges

Birth families and adoptive families that have previously shared updates may continue coordinating the exchanges through the local CHS office. If that office is no longer facilitating updates, call us at 904-493-7780.

Please keep us updated with any changes to your contact info so we can continue to facilitate updates.

Contact us at any time with questions about the search process:

Florida Statutes Chapter 65C-16.016 and Chapter 63.162 do not allow public access to adoption records. The Adoption Archives Unit at Children’s Home Society of Florida preserves records of clients so adoptees, birth parents and adoptive parents can obtain background information and receive services for search and reunion in accordance with the statute.
