What a hot topic lately!
As many of us are already aware, TV shows such as Packed to the Rafters, Find my family and even Neighbours have all touched upon the topic and its importance of searching for birth family through adoption.
Here I will endeavour to help anyone considering searching, whether it be a birth parent, adoptee or adoptive parents.
The most important message I wish to firsty put out there is be careful which adoption sites you visit. I only say this because although you may search specifically for Australian information, nine out of ten times you will hit an American site, providing information which will not necessarily be appropraite to your needs.
I will help in listing contacts that will be of real benefit.
For all those Victorians I will start with VANISH - http://www.vanish.org.au/ , a self-help organisation for people wanting to search for natural relatives seperated by adoption.
