Proving U.S. Citizenship is becoming an issue for many adoptees, and Holt would like to help you solve any issues you or your child may be encountering, including issues with Social Security or US Passports. We may be able to determine their citizenship status, provide document copies, and help replace lost certificates. Please click here.

Holt knows the importance of maintaining a connection between adoptees, adoptive families, birth families, and foster families. Even if birth/foster families aren’t known, adoptees and adoptive parents can have a letter and photo placed into the child’s file should birth family or foster family ever contact Holt.
