Adoption resource center. Online birth parents contacts and queries, access to professional search assistance and other adoption related source material.

This is the best site that I have seen so far on adoption related issues. You may also like to visit another adoption resource, the AdoptioNetwork, a volunteer organization. BirthQuest is a searchable site where you can register and search for your adoptive parents or adopted children.
