Updated August 12, 1999


This page is being constructed to help other native adoptees and birthparents hoping to find to lost ones. As information becomes available it will be added. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. This is an ongoing process, but there is little information out there to help native adoptees, especially the ones who are alone and do not know where or how to start a search.

If you have made it this far, you are not alone, there are people out there who are willing and able to help. It is sometimes hard to reach out to others you do not know. The fear of rejection keeps us from being together. It is hard, but easy paths aren't always the best ones. Everyone needs support, even if it is just someone who will listen. Noone has all the answers, and sometimes the answers you seek can be painful. The healing journey has many up and downs.In the end, you may not find what you expected, but at least you will know the truth.

I am searching for my birthbrothers. We were adopted out to different families. My brother's name is KENNY. He makes soapstone carvings. Last known to be living in London, Ontario. If anyone in London knows him or hears from him, could they PLEASE contact me. I am very worried about him..
FOUND KENNY June, 1999!!!!

My other birthbrother's name is MICHAEL, he was born July 15, 1967. Last known to be in the Hamilton area. If anyone knows anything please email. I need to know my brothers are alive and well.
FOUND MICHAEL April 29, 1999!!!!

If you are adopted from Canada you can obtain "First Nations Status" through Indian Affairs. Please be advised they will not help with your search and they will NOT give out identifying info. But once you have that status card it will usually tell you what reserve you are from or what band you belong to. This will help in finding some of your relatives, if that is what you wish. Many reserves lost children to the system. Many wonder where these children are and if they remember them. Years ago a lot of native families were split up and the children placed with white parents. Some of these children have made it home, but others are still searching.

To find out more info on obtaining status, visit General Info from Indian Affairs for Adoptees.

If you were adopted out of the province of Manitoba or out of the country of Canada, they also have a program to help native adoptees find their way home.
