Finding a long-lost parent, sibling
Adoption Reunion Search Angel
I am one of many Search Angels who help to facilitate family reunions among birth families. We are volunteers and offer our services free. Search on "Search Angels" to find one of us. I have helped with over 100 successful reunions. One of the groups I work with helps to find those who have a medical emergency that requires blood relatives and/or medical histories to deal with an urgent medical conditions.

Adoptees are cut off from this information by their state governments by the act of sealing birth information.
In most states, the adoptee can get a non-identifying document that gives some information from the original interview at the time of the adoption. This is part of the game playing that goes on by the departments of social services against the adoptees and birth families.
Every American deserves to know their family medical history and heritage. Currently approximately 6 million Americans are denied this information by the act of adoption.
