Voluntary Contact Applications - if both you and the family member you are seeking voluntarily register, the Registry will contact you. If both of you agree, professional staff will assist in the facilitation of reunion. This would include sharing general and identifying information and help in determining the best way to establish contact. Submission of an application indicates you are making yourself available for a reunion. If you are unable to download the forms, you may contact the Post Adoption Registry by email. Please indicate which category you fall under and the Registry will mail you the appropriate form.
