Searching for biological family members can be a confusing and difficult journey. The decision to search for biological family, be it a parent or child, is not one that is taken lightly. There are many conflicting emotions, fears, and hope that one goes through while participating in the search process. In addition, there are thousands of websites and services designed to help family members reunite. It can be extremely overwhelming sorting through which ones sound helpful, and discarding those that are not.
Thankfully, there’s a new magazine that wants to help to those searching for biological family members. Adoption Registry Magazine will make its debut on March 1st, 2010. The magazine provides resources for birth families, adoptive families, and adoptees searching for biological links in their history. The publisher, Heather McClane, is a reunited birth mother, and has over eighteen years of adoption search experience.
The goal behind Adoption Registry Magazine is to provide support and education about relevant laws relating to adoption searches. In addition, the magazine will provide a place for you to share your own story. Last, but certainly not least, the magazine will provide direction and assistance to those who are desperately seeking a part of their biological history. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about “Search Angels” who have been playing an instrumental role in the adoption reunification process for years.
Subscriptions are available for for $1.97 per month, $5.27 for three months, or $19.95 for one year. It’s important to note that there is no cost for sending in your search information to the magazine. According to the Adoption Registry Magazine’s website, registrations are valid for up to twelve months. This helps ensure that the contact information of the registrant remains the same. As mentioned above, due to the numerous adoption search magazines and services, this is a very important feature. Whether you are looking for someone through the Adoption Registry Magazine, or submitting your own information, having current contact information is a crucial part of the process.
