Date of Birth
No matches have been made from the Registry for Birthfamilies without a Date of Birth for the Adoptee. Check the resource page for the agency records to get the date of birth. We have not found that CO Birth Certificates have been falsified.
State Run Registry
If you are uncertain if you are a match made from this Registry or any others, both parties should register with the State of Colorado. You need to be sure. There is a $20 fee to register.
There are many types of agency records. Adoptees can request their non identifying information from the adoption agency. Birthmothers should contact the maternity home they gave birth in to resolve the unknown date of birth. See our list on the Agencies page.
At one time, this was nearly the only way to have access to your records and make contact. With the law change regarding the right to the OBC, adoptees are making contact on their own. However, Birthfamilies may still want to seek the Adoptee and use the services of a Confidential Intermediary (CI). Be aware, the cost start at several hundred dollars, and there is no refund in the event the found party does not want contact. In Colorado, as of April 2016, there are two authorized licensed CI's listed on the state website. It is always advised to check references and reviews.
