We provide service to

Adoption information inquiry, search and reunion services
- Application for adoption-related information or written documents:
Adoptees can apply for our service. Adoptees may access related information after the center verified the identity and ensured the welfare and rights of all related parties.
Biological family (custodian), adoptive family, and interested party can apply for this service. They may access related information after the center verified their identity and get approval in the “Information Release Form” signed by the biological or adoptive family.
When the biological family (custodian) or adoptive family passed away or is of unknown whereabouts and there is no written approval from the biological family (custodian) or the adoptive family, Adoption Information Management Committee will evaluate and decide whether to release the adoption information.
- Searching and reunion services：
Most adoptees approached the Center hoping to gather as much adoption-related information as possible, wanting to know about their roots, origin, and about themselves. Some hope to explore the possibility of a reunion and learn about hereditary diseases. Social workers in the Center will discuss the challenges and possible situations in this searching journey with the applicants, and act as mediators to organize reunions for all related parties.

The Center periodically collects adoption documents/information from government authorities as well as adoption organizations and preserves all the adoption data systematically.
