We turn lives around

Search and Reunion

Many individuals touched by adoption come to a point in their lives when they consider searching for their birth child or birth parents.  This is a normal and healthy desire, and DePelchin is here to help. 

Our experienced staff have the ability to search for and facilitate communication between adoptive and birth family members.  The search and reunion process can at times be difficult and emotionally complicated, but it can also be very rewarding.  We’re here to offer support through each stage of the process.

Search Support Group

*Please note that the March 8 support group at the Memorial location is cancelled due to weather.

DePelchin’s Search Support Group is a small, informal group designed for those involved in various stages of the search and reunion process as well as those who just want to learn more about these services. We offer guidance and support to those interested in connecting with biological family members. We welcome anyone to the group who has been touched by adoption, as our services are not limited to those who have adopted through DePelchin.

The Search Support Group is offered at DePelchin’s main campus the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 in the Duncan conference room on the 2nd floor.  A $5.00 donation is requested for each group session.  Registration is not required to attend.  View the calendar for Search Support Group sessions.
