I was also adopted and found my birthparents about 13 years ago. It is such an emotional rollercoaster ride and there are some wonderful books out there to help you on your journey. Nothing though, can prepare you for all the emotions that you have.
I am going to move this thread over to FYT, in hopes that other adoptees also see this thread.
In terms of closed files, it depends on the state. In the state that i'm in, you have to petition the court to open the adoption file and if the judge grants it, then you have access to your birthparents names, etc. there are alot of websites that also might be able to help you. i went through an organization called WARM. they might be able to help you too.
I'm another adult adoptee, was adopted when I was 3 1/2 months old by wonderful parents. I'm also a birth mom, gave birth to a daughter 18 years ago who was placed for adoption. Finally, I'm a new mom, just gave birth to a son in Nov.!
I have pretty positive feelings about all aspects of adoption. I've never done any serious searching for birth parents or my birth daughter, just a few quick searches online. I'd be happy to meet then, though.
