Through its private adoption program, DePelchin provides support services to families who have either placed or adopted a child through its private infant adoption program, including information and referral, consultation and search and reunion.
Search and Reunion through Private Adoption

This is a normal and healthy desire, and DePelchin's experienced staff have the ability to search for and facilitate communication between adoptive and birth family members.
