In 1996 Beth Leve established the California Mutual Consent Registry as a way for adoptees and birth family members, who are mutually searching for each other, to have their reunion facilitated by a "search angel".

Being one of the adoption search angels, I have helped with over a thousand family reunions. In 2008 I took over responsibility for the family search registry and worked with my own son to develop this website to register and search adoption records. Our mission is to provide a user-friendly and safe place where adoptees and birth family members can find one another. Our adoption registry, Find My Family, currently has over 90,000+ people, and has resulted in many wonderful reunions.

Our vision for creating is to reconnect every adoptee with their birth family. While initially the registry was just for California, due to its success, in November 2009 we expanded the registry to all United States. We're proud of the fact our adoption search registry is constantly growing with several dozen new registrations added every day. With the continued growth and international adoptees from around the world, in April 2018 we opened up registrations for Australia, Canada, and United Kingdom.

We rely on greatly-appreciated donations to help cover our family research expenses and to ensure we can continue providing this service to search for biological family members.

We will never give your personal information to anyone without your permission. The only exception is if we have found a match for you and are unable to contact you via email, phone or letter. In that situation we will provide the last known contact information we have for you, to the other party.

It is vital for you to keep your contact information current so you can be contacted when there is a match to your adoption search registration.

Wishing all registrants a quick search and fulfilling family reunion!
